Exclamation My Air Suspension OFF light is blinking (UPDATED)

So the yellow OFF light for my air suspension is blinking periodically while im driving. I checked the manual and it says its okay to keep driving, but to get it checked out my lexus as soon as possible. It says that there is something wrong with the modulated air suspension unit, no idea what that is. Any ideas what may be the problem? hope its not costly, im out of warranty

All new computers have to cycle 3 times to remove an error code. I would imagine you have already driven the car enough since the problem ocurred for the computer to reset.

When a check engine light came on in one of my cars in years past. The first thing I would do is disconnect the battery and touch the two wires together. Sometimes this resets your computer and it might tell you if this is just a one time faulty sensor error.

Another thing you can always check is the TSB list to see if there's a service bulletin out for your car's suspension.

hmm thanks. It went away yesterday and came back today, so i dont think its a fluke. THe manual doesnt say much. it just says to stop by your local lexus dealer, but that it is safe to continue driving. Im just afraid the entire suspension module needs to be changed and im out of warranty. Could cost big $$

well just an update, i made an appointment for next tuesday to bring the car in.

currently, just tonight, it decided to go on "high" mode in the rear but not in the front. great, it looks hideous. anyways, dont know what to do till then. im guessing its safe enough to drive.

well its tuesday and i got the car back after 6 hours of work. Turns out it was a simple wire that fell off, well and took a lot of time to figure out how to put it back. Labor: $250 Parts: $0

"Found broken wire in the right rear suspension (exhaust solenoid)"

I just started experiencing the same blinking light on the (sports) air suspension of my 2004 RX330. Haven't taken it into the dealer yet, but I'll let you know what they diagnose in my case. Thanks for your posts!

I've had the same problem a few months ago , took it to stealership and they found out it was leaking air tank and a sensor, luckily my warranty took care of it. Otherwise it would cost me $ 2600 and some change.

warranty is the usual: 4 years, 50K miles unless you bought the extension
