Eas control switch on dash 1997 p38


Recommended Posts

When are you trying this? It'll only do it when you're actually allowed to go to access height (engine running, in park, foot off brake).

Going down overnight is probably due to a leak somewhere. Take out the big black relay under the LH seat when parking up overnight to stop the system from self-levelling, then you can see which corner drops down.

.... opening a door stops mine going down as well.

It should, but that's a bit hard if you can't park inside over night. 😉

I replace the timer relay with a standard 4-pin relay on all P38s. That way the EAS is only active when the ignition is on, so wont wake up to level when parked. Helps prevent loss of air and makes it easier to check for leaks as you'll know which corner drops (as @elbekko said). Do keep the timer relay in the car, as you'll need it to connect diagnostics. Unless you manage to cycle the ignition in exactly the right way to put the EAS into diagnostic mode.

Should be under the LH seat, the big black relay.

Cheers for that Filip , so I have just got to swap it out for a standard black or yellow relay that's used in the main fuse box ?

I'm not Filip, that's @Escape :D But yes, just swap it out for a regular yellow one like is used in the fuse box (for example for the heater windscreen).

Oh, that's alright, a few people think we're brothers although we're not. And we usually hang out in the same places/threads...
