Lowered while driving


Recommended Posts

Is it normal for the vehicle to raise itself up when you drive over 15 MPH when you have the vehicle lowered to it's lowest setting and also isn't it supposed to lower all the way down when you reach a high speed limit of about 100mph?

I have a 05 cayenne turbo.

the lowest setting for the vehicle is called loading level. from what I understand that level it's not meant to be driven on. so when you are in this level and you crossed 15 miles per hour vehicle automatically goes up to the low level.

once you are in the lower level the car it should not be going up or down automatically.

when going fast about 120 miles per hour I believe (think exact number is 126 or so), if you are not in the lower level the car will automatically lower to it

From my '06 CTTS owners manual:

Low Level: This level is intended for high-speed driving. Above
speeds of around 78 mph (125 km/h), the car is
lowered by around 1 in or 27 mm compared to
normal level.
Special Low Level: At extremely high speeds, for example when
operated on a race track, the car is lowered 0.4 in or
11 mm compared to the low level.

Better yet, here is all of it, yours doesn't sound like it's operating properly:

Note on operation
Frequent level changes can cause the compressor
to overheat. In this case, the compressor must
cool for several minutes before the level adjustment
is fully functional again.
Normal level
The ground clearance at normal level is around
8.5 in or 217 mm.
Terrain level
This setting is intended for off-road driving, field
paths and forest paths, etc.
The vehicle is raised by around 1 in or 26 mm.
compared to normal level.
Terrain level can be selected only manually at
speeds below around 50 mph (80 km/h).
The car is automatically lowered to normal level at
speeds exeeding around 50 mph (80 km/h).
The car is automatically raised to terrain level
when Low Range is activated.
Special terrain level
This setting is intended only for extremely challenging
terrain requiring maximum ground clearance.
The vehicle is raised by 2.2 in or 56 mm
compared to normal level.
Special terrain level can be selected only at
speeds below around 19 mph (30 km/h).
The car is automatically lowered to terrain level at
speeds exeeding around 19 mph (30 km/h).
Low level
This level is intended for high-speed driving. Above
speeds of around 78 mph (125 km/h), the car is
lowered by around 1 in or 27 mm compared to
normal level.
When the speed drops to below around 25 mph
(40 km/h), the car is automatically raised to normal
level.
Special low level
At extremely high speeds, for example when operated
on a race track, the car is lowered 0.4 in or 11 mm compared to the low level.

For all practical purposes

I drive in low all the time, I drop to load level to pose hahaha

If you drive off in load level it will raise to NORMAL level almost as soon as you start to move, I always catch it and set to low.

I use high only when the snow is deep (I don't off road) and High Terrain level when I go thru the car wash since it cleans the sides better I feel.

On the freeway the level sets itself anything over 78, no matter what setting you have set, the PSM takes over and adjusts for handling and then restores to normal level when its done.
