I think the compressor is under (or next to) the spare tyre well in the back.

take it to a dealer or buy a scanner, pretty sure if the position light goes away, and suspension inactive stays up, it's hard fault and won't return to normal until the issue is repaired the and computer is reset.

4X4 specialist is not the same thing as a LR stealer unless they are using LR specific diagnostic tools, which would be why the EAS didnt communicate..

if they were using LR diagnostics they it it sounds like the EAS computer has taken a dump... in your lap

Why do you think it's a lemon? EAS is a wear item just like brakes, alternator and cooling... etc. It's just part of owning an aging Rangie. Trouble shoot it using the search function and home page bits. Fix it yourself or have it fixed and wait for the next system to fail. :mrgreen:

This guy should buy one of those USB EAS computers on here... I need to get one, but I'm pretty lazy seems worth the 200 since even from an independent shop they still want 75 to pull the codes.

Nice. I love happy endings. Hopefully I'll join you on the happy boat today when my mechanic calls me and tells me if I need a new transmission or not.

Hi there,
I have exactly the same problem and exactly the same model range rover: air suspension inactive and problems with the message centre on the dashboard - in my case there are pixels missing on the instrument binnacle and the cd screen on the central console is completely dead.

Did your dealer do a diagnostic on the software or just dive straight into the dashboard?

I'm hoping my truck has the same issue, as opposed to something bigger.

Thanks!
