2000 S430 Airmatic Question
Hello everyone. New to the Forum here. Forgive me for asking, as I'm sure this has been covered.
Traveling from California to Oklahoma the past few days. Stayed in Flagstaff Monday night and Amarillo, TX last night. Temperature dipped to below zero in Amarillo. When I walked out to the Benz at 7:30am the car was low and I get an Airmatic warning not to move car when I started the ignition. Immediately, the Airmatic activated and within 90 seconds the car was back up to normal. This is the first time this has happened to me, but I've never been in zero temps with the car before.
My S430 has 77,000 miles on it. Did the car lower because of the low temperature and is this normal? It didn't lower the night before in Flagstaff, but the temperature didn't fall below zero either.
Any forthcoming advice or suggestions are appreciated. Thank you in advance.
