Hi All.

we just drove our 2012 Autobiography 5.0lt home after having the lower track arm replaced (not a big job, hence not going MD) by a local garage, we live in the middle of Suffolk and the garage has worked on may cars for us with no issues, but as we're heading back the suspension has dropped, no air whatsoever in it. Just called the garage and we're told that what they did wouldn't have affected the suspension in any way.

Suffice to say the car is a pig to drive, scary is the word I'd use, especially on country roads at 20mph.

Would any of you clued up people know what this could be as the garage isn't a specialist and I want to hep them out if I can.

Hi All.

I just took the car back to the garage armed with some information that I got from this site, and user Wayne TJ.

Anyhow, after a it of we'll I'm not too sure what it could be, I pulled out the screenshot of the users advice, instantly the coin dropped, two minutes later the car is fixed and driving like a dream.

What was it? It was:


As TJ wrote...... "Sounds like the suspension level sensors are twisted around. Check your dash screen and see what it reports for front suspension height. Does it show one or both front corners to be WAY off what they actually are?

I'd have a look underneath and see if the rubber arms on the sensors are twisted around. Very common when jacking the vehicle."

So a real BIG thanks to the man with the advice.

It was probably the wire connector to the height level adjuster for that side. They didnt tighten it back on properly and so it disconnected or became to loose to where the CPU couldn't read it. The EAS went into protection mode and dropped the chassis on your ride back. They must have tightened it in their process of troubleshooting the problem and not know or didnt tell you that they had tightened the connection.
