Hello guys

“Visit Workshop” My Airmatic Visit Workshop warning came on . I drove the car home with no noticeable sagging of the suspension. Not losing any air at all. The airmatic has no leaks or anything it goes up and down fine . AIRMATIC system scanned with snap on Diagnostics tool. Said something not good on right rear wheel. Any advise?

Thank you

You probably have a problem in your valve block or right rear strut , the sensors are not transmitting the correct values, hence the warning .

If everything looks fine regarding the suspension height you can probably ignore the warning but note a valve block or strut may be needed soon

Thank you.

Ride is feel the same as before, all four corner are at same level. Is the sensor inside the strut? I was think maybe just a loose connection..?

I had same issue with no RED too low panic light, just white message (Airmatic Visit Workshop ).
My resolution was replacing the Airmatic pump for about $105.. light is off now
I figured was pump when pressing the Raise car button didn't move the car up at all.
Now it raises right up...when pressing button

BTW I drove mine with the light on for a month till I got around to putting the pump in, never got the dreaded Red warning light too low!

It's not funny but based on my experiences: Red warning is tell your mostly struts needs replace and white message is for pump , valve block or air lines and air tank ..why and how >>>????
