      So I have had E-Level installed for about a year with very few headaches. Recently I have had some odd behavior with one of my height sensors. I have been driving absolutely fine, no issues, took a 6 hour drive to visit my dad, and parked the car for 2 days while visiting, when I went to get into my car before I left, level sensor one was red. I was really confused because I had not even driven, turned the car on and it was out. So I took a look at the level arm and the sensor, everything looked fine/normal. So I aired up to drive home and about 1 min into driving the light popped back on and it was good to go. Ever since then, usually when starting the car for the first time, that height sensor will be red and will usually turn on after a minute or two after driving.

      The other day, it did this, but turned on and off about 10 times while driving for 25 minutes. Today, I turned the car on and the sensor was fine. Its very random, doesn't follow a pattern, and is driving me crazy, any ideas?

      I haven't changed a thing or touched it since I installed it.

      Hey dude shoot me a PM or give us a shout. Sounds like you may be getting a sensor disconnect.

      If you have a buddy around I would have them keep an eye on the controller while you wiggle the sensor plug around.

      ill give that a try when I get a chance, if no luck, ill give you guys a call, its just weird because nothing has changed since I installed it, I never touched it or anything, and it only happens sometimes, and will usually go away in a couple minutes.

      you can also try switching the sensors from side to side and see if the problem follows. this will help tell you if it's the sensor, or the sensor wire.

      Jesse's the man and i'm sure will get you all sorted
