Jacking The Car Without Putting System In Jack Mode?

Recommended Posts


I have jacked up my car without putting the system in jack mode (V8 turbo). After reading the manual (I know too late) I see that I had to put the system in "jack mode".

Could I have damaged something? Do I have to do something (go to the dealer to reset something?

Thanks, frank

When the car has air suspension, there is a setting called "jack mode". At least this is what the manual of my turbo says. You have the push the air suspension (when in normal level) button upwards for 5-10 seconds. Then the display will say that the car is in Jack mode. To get it back, repeat the procedure.

The jack mode is a safety item, if you jack up the car to change a wheel and some body turn the key to the contact position, it is possible that the air suspension compressor start working and the system ( the 3 other suspension elements ) will stabilise the car on a approx. horizontal position, the car can come off the jack.
