      Example: I'm at ride height and the tank is at 150psi. I put some air in the front bags to get over a speed bump which drops the tank to 140psi. The compressor turns on even though it's no where close to the 110 minimum.

      I'm guessing it's a problem with my manifold? Two of my friends are wired the exact same as me and do not have this issue so I don't think it's a problem on my end.
      Thankfully I have yet to experience this. Only thing is the compressor will turn on after I turn the car on even if the tank is at like 135 psi (I have the minimum set to 120). I think this was discussed a few pages back as well.

      Forget what I said. Just saw it happen first hand.

      Same with mine on the compressor. Also having an issue when airing the rear out. It will let down to 30 psi where I have it set, and then continue down to zero, air back up to ride height(42psi), back down to 30. I've been shutting the car off when it hits 30 the first time, but it's getting kind of annoying. Anyone else experience this?

      Dan, run thru the calibration again that should solve that.

      My only thought is the pressure sensor refresh rate through the ECU is too jumpy or not filtered enough (too high or low a refresh rate) that it senses a sudden jump in pressure and kicks on the compressor because it thinks there is a big leak in the tank or something.

      I think Airlift might need to do a small software upgrade on these initial units if that is the problem.

      Hope not to have the same problem once I finish installing the bags. Although I opted for a kill switch so I can turn the compressor off when I don't want it on.

      Jeremy sent me out a new manifold with a return shipping paid box for my old one... Can't speak highly enough about dealing with him/airlift. They are going to diagnose my manifold so hopefully it will solve this for everyone.

      So I just installed my air-ride last weekend (Airlift components all around) and I'm having problems getting my Presets to work. The system works fine in manual mode, but when I try to get it to hit presets it won't. It only gives me the "STOPPED / FAILED" message. If I fill the bags and then hit a preset it will air down to them, but it won't fill up to them from when I'm parked.
      oh herro.

      Yeah, I've ran the calibration a couple of times. I'm gonna read back through all the manuals and see if maybe I missed something.

      I really appreciate it, I think because of time zones I may not be able to call while I'm around my car. I work 7am -4pm west coast time. But I will try to call anyway and maybe you can talk me through it. I'm not allowed to bring my cell phone to work because I have a camera phone, so I'll have to see if I can call from a work phone.

      Thanks again.
      oh herro.

      My problem is still unresolved. I've re-read the manuals and run the calibration multiple times. My car will air down to presets but won't air up to presets.

      Does the V2 manifold have to be mounted upright or can it be mounted on its side?

      It can be mounted both ways I believe.

      Sorry for not calling yet, I've had a really busy work week and found out today that I'm working all weekend too. I work on a base and can't have a camera phone at work, and where I work I don't get service anyway so I just leave my phone in my car during the day.

      While at SOWO, Air Lift had the new software update done to my V2 management. Fixed the issue where compressor will turn on when you turn the key even if the tank is just about full. Only thing it didn't fix was airing the car up to ride height after the car sits, the compressor will still turn on even if it doesn't get below my tank minimum.

      My only complaint was after all this, my right front bag was leaking the entire trip home. Thought maybe I needed to cut the ends of the airline and reinsert into the manifold. Front right bag still leaks a tad from what I see and my rear has a nice leak on it now. Leaving on a business trip until next month so I'll probably deal with that headache when I get back.

      The new update gets rid of that issue. I haven't had the compressors kick on with the key once since Jeff updated it. I've just been dealing with the leaks.
