One of the neatest things I like about the Phaeton is the way that it would lower itself after locking the vehicle. The last few times I have gone out with the car and shut it off, I noticed it stays at the same height and does not lower. Does anyone know a possible cause for this? Thanks!
After “ignition off,” the Level Control
System Control Module J197 remains
active for approximately one minute.
During this time it can execute suspension
adjustments to compensate for changes
in payload, provided that sufficient pressure
is available in the pressure accumulator.
The Level Control System Control Module
J197 always remains active for one minute
until no further door hood, or luggage
compartment lid operations are detected.
I've noticed the system 'correct' itself while parked on an incline or such - but not while parked inside the garage - as is mainly leveled and flat(!). I do like the fact that the system also adjusts itself depending on the load being carried... Great stuff
Mine (Euro height, ie 1-inch lower than NAR) does not lower after locking.
After the wake period that Gabriel mentioned, the SSP says it makes 3 further corrections of height when switched off. These are at two hours, five hours and 10 hours after switching off, but depend on having sufficient compressed air still in storage.
