Question about 2004 Land Rover Range Rover
Range Rover 4.4 2005, On my message center it says the air suspension is inactive, and the HDC is inactive, the ABS light is on, Brake light is also on, and DSC light is on. I would like to know what is the problem
Air Suspension Inactive usually means there is a problem with the Air Suspension. However, it will also come up when alternator or battery voltage is low, or when you reset (disconnect and then connect) the battery. To reset it manually: while in P(ark), turn steering wheel all the way left, hold few seconds, and then all the way right, hold few seconds. All the warning lights will go out. Most common failure is the passenger front air strut, since batteries are prone to leaking acid, it leaks right on top of the rubber airbag and burns through it. Dealer willcharge you one hour to diagnose, or you can easily diagnose this by looking at the ride height of each particular corner of the truck. If its sits low, or emits hissing sound when you park the truck, its leaking. If you keep driving with leaky air strut, you risk burning up the air compressor, as its working extra hard to compensate for the leak. Replacing the strut is easy 45min job even for a novice mechanic, and you can do it yourself. Strut can be found new for approx $750 online. If you are fed up with air suspension issues, there is a $700 kit that converts the truck to springs, and disables all of the air suspension. Look up Arnott Industires

I just had a similar problem, husband disconnected the battery and when he started the car the brake light, abs, traction control lights were on and air suspension inactive message came on. I found on another site someone with the same problem and it said START THE CAR, TURN THE WHEEL ALL THE WAY TO THE LEFT AND THEN ALL THE WAY TO THE RIGHT...and guess what it cleared all the errors. try it, it may just work

We had same proplem, remove fuse to air suspension with engine off and key removed, the fuse islocated on right hand boot compartment clean it then replace, startup then drive. Fuse box tends to get some humidity damp over time. This completely solved our problem and never returned.

The solution to all ur problems is do not go to the dealership ,find a mechanic that has the reader computer to diagnose , ive spent 5400.00 and walked away with the suspension light still on,they changed height sensors,air pump,front right air bag,headlight ecu module..dont ask ? and still in there parking lot the suspension light still on ...then they tell me that it could b cuz its cold out ......morans

I found a fix to all my 2004 RR HSE problems. This thing had so many warning lights that last year we parked it in our living room instead of a christmas tree. Once the new year arrived, I fixed all the problems. I've traded in for a black Escalade ESV. Believe me, all your problems will go away.You will sleep deeper and wake up fresher. You will have more energy during the day and *********** in law won't visit you anymore.
Range Rover, Any Year Any Model = JUNK. $80,000 garbage. Stupidest car I have ever had and I had and have many cars since I own a limo and black car company.
WORST CARS that I owned.
#1 - 2004 Range Rover HSE (sold, yeeaaahh)
#2 - 2006 BMW 750LI (still have it)
#3 - 2007 S550 4 matic (still have it)
BEST Cars that I curently own
#1 - 2005 and up Lincoln Town Cars
#2 - FORD E350 and E450 Vans
#3 - 2007-2009 Chevy Suburbans and Cadillac Escalade ESV's.
P.S. Get rid of that junk, RR is not a car!!!

A very common fault caused by leakage on one of the struts/low battery power. You have to reset it at a RR garage. Get them to check the system at same time. I had a 2003 RR and it was a common issue until I replaced the leaking air suspension

So I had the same problem and it was my Yaw sensor. After I had this replaced everything has been fine since.
