Rear air suspension not responsive

Installed APGuys lowering links and when I took it out of Jack mode the back never budged. Is there a fuse to pull to reset the rear suspension leveling? I tried powering down car, also tried resetting computer. I’ll try reinstalling my stock links in the back to see if that triggers some movement. Pretty disappointed!

Are you sure the links are in the correct way? I made the mistake of putting the links in the wrong way and the similar thing happened to me at the front of the car. Its kind of hard to explain the correct way the links should be, but the arm of the sensor should face downwards if that makes sense

I’ve only gotten that error/icon twice. Reboots/came back to the car later both times and issue was cleared.

BTW I notice you have The Camber King adjustable arms... how fortuitous for me as I was thinking of getting them as well. Good quality and easy to adjust/set by the alignment shop?? TIA!

They are NOT easy to adjust and set. The sleeve is difficult to loosen on both sides so that the camber can be set. It’s probably the cheapest set out there but where to tighten down the sleeves so as not to alter ride height in back... it’s a mystery. Very frustrating.
Wow, glad I asked then. Looks like gotta pony up for the usual suspects/brands then. Thx!!!
 
And SAS now functionally properly? Strange if so, even if the printed links were broken. Unless of course the ball joint just spun and didn’t move the actual lowering link.
It’ll work at each level but then goes back to error code mentioned earlier. Soonest Tesla service is April 5. And that’s fifteen miles away.
Don’t mention the lower links to them, they will try to avoid fixing it under warranty then.
I’I haven’t been under warranty for years.

also you can pull the 12v negative terminal and let the car sit for a bit and reconnect it and see if it clears itself.
No luck. I’m thinking my height sensors just so happened to die during the movement of installing the new lowering links. I can get the set on eBay for $100. Much cheaper next step than a $175 min. at Tesla.
