Had a message in the EVIC that read " battery low start vehicle to adjust air ride height or adjust air settings." Anyone else with the air ride seen this?
Yep, both times Rhonda (our name for the truck) has sat for 48 hours she gave the message about low battery and the need to start the engine to raise the suspension from the park mode. She has been on a couple of long trips so her battery should be fully charged. The battery meter showed 14v during the trips.Had a message in the EVIC that read " battery low start vehicle to adjust air ride height or adjust air settings."

The air suspension does not use air, it's a closed nitrogen system. In any case it should not be doing anything when the truck is turned off.Hmmm good thread! Be a good idea to test your battery, maybe they got a bad batch or something?
Or just brainstorming here maybe you have a small leak and your system is taking in air periodically to compensate, hence drawing current off the battery
Would it? I don't know. If it's a closed system and it loses integrity, there has got to be a process that watches for excessive run time against various parameters.And yes it is a closed system but if the system has a leak it will take in outside air to maintain function.
My understanding is that the air suspension does not operate with the engine off unless the key fob is used to activate it. That makes sense for safety reasons as well as battery life. I have not noticed it ever leveling with the engine off including when I open doors or load/unload stuff in the bed. I have read user reports of the air suspension operating with the engine off which sounds like a malfunction.When my truck is off it is always leveling itself. my dogs and I are getting in and out of the bed of the truck all day. When I unload it, the truck will lower on its own and when I load it, the truck will raise on its own. The key is not in the ignition and the truck is off. I have noticed that if I put the truck into park mode before I get out the air suspension does not adjust itself until I start the truck.
Sorry, you cannot override the system settings without program tinkering by a very knowledgeable engineer. The stock air suspension is not designed for high speeds at its limits (off-road or park modes) because of adverse effects on ride, handling and suspension wear.Can you leave it in park mode or do you need to set it every time you park?
Has anyone found a way to hake the air suspension speed settings for off-road mode? When off road there are some good sections where you can go faster than 25 mph
