There are a variety of faults that can occur on a Land Rover air suspension System from electrical problems like Blown Fuses, Broken Relays, Wires having Open Circuit or Switches and Sensors not working correctly. Then you have mechanical issues like Faulty Air Compressor, Leaking Pipes or Leaking air-bags.
Air-bag Leaks or Piping One of the most common air suspension problems is a leaking airbag. With time, the rubber components of these parts will deteriorate, creating holes and tears and causing an air leak on older models.
There are various warning signs when your air suspension is leaking. Vehicle suspension has dropped overnight, one side or corner of the vehicle maybe down. You will experience a bumpier ride if the car is on the suspension bumps. The air compressor is continuously running. The air compressor works to keeps the airbags inflated. When there’s a leak, the compressor will keep running to try and keep the airbag inflated, but will eventually overheat and seize if they are leaking.
A faulty compressor is the most common air suspension problem. The compressor works to keep the airbags inflated, and the compressors can malfunction because it’s overworked and will overheat and seize, causing the part to fail.
One way to determine if your air compressor is faulty is to check the vehicle height. If it’s riding lower than usual, the compressor may not be working correctly or at all. Hearing noises coming from the compressor can also mean issues. Sounds like a Whining, Clinking and Grinding, all indicate a problem with the compressor motor or fan.
The compressed air within an air suspension system contains moisture that can accumulate and lead to severe damage. This issue can be caused by a malfunctioning air dryer unit, that removes moisture from the compressed air. Excessive moisture in the suspension system could result in rust and corrosion.
The quickest and easiest way to fix these common air suspension problems is to have the system repaired as soon as the faults are noticed. This should help to prevent a complete system failure. Understanding common air suspension problems is the first step to preventing system failure, so take the time to get to know the issues and schedule a suspension repair as soon as they start happening.
