Got back in car after a short drive and "Visit Workshop" warning that shows an outline of the vehicle with an arrow in the middle pointing up appears on dash...does anyone known what it means. Car has airmatic suspension. Suspension / drive feels ok...using the switch that shows an outline of the vehicle with an arrow in the middle pointing up raises the suspension...never used this switch before. Thanks everyone...

Need some fault codes, going be the pump is not making enough pressure due to being burnt out or a axle level sensor...............

Pump is around £400 but don't quote me on that price, you would need a relay as well, the level sensor might just need a modded bit of wiring. safe to drive until It packs up completely and she sits her ars on the ground.........

Just had a closer look at the car and it appears to be sitting a lot higher than previously...especially at the front...also when 'the button with an image of the car and an upright arrow ' is pressed nothing happens...previously this highered the car I think...does this fit in with the pump failure concept????

Thanks
