Cold Weather Air Suspension Fault

Recommended Posts

Don't know the exact code but I have been to cold areas twice in the past month, 30 degrees and below in the evening. The next morning after driving a few miles I get an air suspension fault. After returning home, shutting the car off and going about my business, it never returns. I am assuming something with the cold air, higher elevation and the air currently in the shocks giving an erroneous code. Anyone else experience this? No problems with the suspension by the way.

Yes I have noticed the same conditions when I get my air suspension fault code. Once I return to low elevation and restart the car it goes away.

I have a durametric Pro and I have not been able to pull any codes as it always goes away by the time I get back to lower elevations.

If you can have a passenger monitor actual values and run tests while you drive at higher elevations. Let them do the computer - you just drive to produce the error.

I had this problem when I moved to Colorado. The fix was pretty simple - I had the air pump rebuilt with a new piston ring. There is a kit to do this that is relatively inexpensive, and I understand that it's an easy DIY. I had my dealer do it when my Cayenne was in for an oil change.
