Hi,

Another fault has developed. The car still moves to thre settings through the switch by the gear stick (off/one light/two lights), however if stationary it seems to move without intervention. Is this normal? The ride height also changes and seems different at the same speeds?

Any idea if a problem or just normal?

Regards

Never heard of this happening. The car should not change height when stationery, is this happening when the car is set to the normal height.

Do you have any warning about the ABC visit workshop

I will check tonight when I find the changing of the oil level sensor

The car changing height is a hard on,,is it going up and down on all 4 corners, if only 1, then a level control sender could do this, A pulsation damper was fitted to later cars.

I think that the only way here is to get the car plugged into STAR

locked or not?

do you leave the car unlocked when parked? I have the same car - every time you unlock, there's all sorts of buzzing goes on & I'm sure the height is increased - all sorts out as soon as you start driving though

I do not leave the car locked in the garage unless I am away,,it actually uses about 6m/a less when locked.

The buzzing will only be the going to sleep process and this takes about 20 mins and then go all silent
