Did quite a bit of pretty hectic 4x4 this weekend pics to follow, on getting into the car this morning there way a terrible sound coming from the EAS compressor I knew the seals were almost dead so knew it was the sound of the pistol rubbing against the sleave to prvent further damage I decided to unplug the main connector to the EAS compressor and did the 170km home on normal ride height locked in. As I arrived in town the mesage display said EAS Fault Slow 55km/h so when i got home I removed the compressor tore it appart cleaned it and put it back in the sound is now gone from the compressor untill my seals arrive but the display still says EAS fault has this been hard logged into the BECM and is the only way to reset it is by using the RSW software or another capable pc? Or will the system sort itself out

Come to Cape Town and you can get it re-set for one or three glasses of fine South African wine. Or Russian vodka. Or Winhoek Laager. Your choice.....

55kph is not yet a hard fault where it will drop you to bump stops, it may or may not sort its self out, hard to say without reading faults.

Try again in the morning, have you checked for leaks cos the next move is 35kph and bump stops, not nice so if you can kinda trace a leak or as you mentioned compressor is now quieter then you may be onto a winner

most likely a "compressor overheat" codes because you unplugged it, this one will sometimes clear itself, depends on the rover's mood.

As per the PM's a couple of options:
1; Fakawe has my cable, hopefully he can post it direct.
2; I have a portable emergency kit that is easily posted.
3; I may even have the bits in the garage to make another cable.

Hopefully we can get the postage from Cape Town easily enough.

Do you have the software? Do a dummy run anyway as if necessary maybe one of us can post it out on a CD.

I have just dug in the garage and found my other lead (apologies to Fakawe as I may have given you one that has a fault).
I have just tested it and all OK so I have the lead, USB converter and a USB lead ready to go along with my manual kit and a couple of pipe joiners.
If you PM me your address I can go to the post office as I will need to get something to post them in anyhow.

Hopefully SA to Namibia should be rapid post - just tell me what you want? Standard, registered, postnet etc.

You do get an EAS fault message whilst it's plugged in, it goes away once you unplug it.

There are people on here who know much more about the system than I do though - I'm just glad you can manage a decent drive home. Hang onto my phone number if case you need to call en route.

Dont mean to hijack this thread, if you want parts, be it piston and sleeves, eas drivers etc Rangies.com has them, if he doesnt then he'll contact me and I'll make sure he has whats needed on the EAS side, he usually posts next day country wide.

This is for Suothern Africa only, I or Philip do not trade elsewhere
