    I have to go into very high mode to get into my garage (steep downhill). A couple of times, it has complained that the air suspension was too high when I got back in the following morning. Something to worry about? Should I be lowering it after parking? That would be a pain, and I suspect I'd forget to raise it the following morning.

    I've had the error a couple of times when set to Very High. Not sure why. Doesn't seem to hurt anything.

    One theory is that the air in the suspension will expand a bit in a warmer environment (like a heated garage), and give the car the impression that it is raised too high if parked at the Very High setting.

    Since you are in California, that may not be your case though... :smile:

    That is what was explained to me by the service center when I reported it. I was told that I should only be worried if the error stays after driven a few hundred feet or so.
