    It could be the height sensors giving a duff reading at standard height due to internal wear at the most commonly used height. The sensor is effectively a potentiometer, so through fair wear and tear, it's possible that the internal components will wear to that extent.

    I suspect you are correct. I let the truck idle yesterday and could hear the solenoids click clacking away every 10-20 seconds.

    I also left the truck in standard height, door open, every corner is within 1-2 mm after 24 hours.

    I think I will take it to the dealer to have the sensors re-calibrated, should they say one of the sensors is knackered (even though I have no fault codes indicating that). What is the best brand? OEM?

    I found these cheap chinese ones -> https://www.ebay.com/itm/ANR4686-ANR...kAAOSweTlcj~bu

    Anyone try them? After all the sensors are just a potentiometer.... how badly could the chinese mess it up?

    They need to have an old guy who is trained on the P-38 EAS on staff and a working Testbook. Kinda rare these days....
    They will charge you about the same as the purchase price of a Nanocom, and in the end, if they do somehow find the sensors are bad, you will install your CCC sensors and need to bring it back for re- re-calibration.....
    If you feel like a drive to Oakley, I would be happy to use the Nano on it and read the numbers in real time.
    We could also re calibrate the height to just a bit higher or lower to avoid the potential flat spots on the sensors.......

    Why your with bolt, your learn a lot in a short time, the eas is most probably one of the most infuriating parts on a p38, but once you understand it, it’s easy, another thing I would do, is remove the connectors behind the kick panels, solder and heat shield, eliminates many problems
