Front Axle Lift (FAL) System


Recommended Posts

I am getting the common FAL failure problem on my Turbo S. The FAL works, or at least seems to work, perfectly OK, but I get an error flash up when the FAL is lowered. DSC offer a replacement control unit, which I am considering, albeit its $1400 ! Anyway, what I want to know is, is it possible to tweek the operation speed? Currently, it automatically lowers at 23 MPH, but I would like to increase this to say 30 MPH. Anyone any thoughts or ideas how to achieve this, or if it's possible to program at all?

Yeah, I figured that, Loren. But cheers anyway. It's weird that they set it to 23 MPH. Often there are several sets of speed humps in a road separated by a say a hundred yards and the tendency is to pick up a bit of speed in between them. Then by the time you are on the next speed hump, you have to lift the front axle again. Stupid design IMHO. I can't see how any damage could be done if the front axle was lifted at higher speeds. It should be programmable in the dash menus. Just my two bits worth.

Hope you are keeping well btw. It's been a long time 😉
