i am not a motor or any type of mechanic or technician and what i state here is what i've experienced with my D3.
you do not state if the fault message is displayed all the time or not, but consider the following:
- does the fault go away if you restart the car.
- if it does go away, have your car's battery checked - the reason for the fault could be that there is a voltage drop at a specific moment in time and for one or other reason it displays the fault you see instead of just telling you that the battery is not fully charged. This will happen when you use your car mostly in town and do not drive longish distances to give the alternator a chance to recharge the battery. A possible solution will be to use a battery charger to recharge the battery say every 2 or 3 months
- If not, check the fuse for the suspension (the one in the engine compartment - its a yellow 30Ampere block type fuse). the reason for this could be that the compressor takes to long to raise the suspension and then it blows the fuse. Another possible reason is that the fuse is not properly seated in its position or does not always make proper contact.
- the suspension compressor can be serviced. there are 2 items that can be bought from the dealers, not now sure what its called but rather inexpensive when comparing to the cost of a new compressor, and replace the other parts. In my case we removed the compressor, took it apart, cleaned it, put it back together and back onto the car. this allowed the compressor to raise the car a bit faster than before.
- i've also read that one can use one of the faultmate products to change the time (make it faster) it takes for the compressor to raise the suspension
my solution for now is to always have 2 of those fuses in the car
i hope u get it right
