RX300 Air Suspension stuck in high position on one side

Recommended Posts

Yeah I don't think there will be many people or garages that can help when I had my soarers I new where to find the air supply on each corner of the car. You could try finding a post specific to bleeding air system or try YouTube

slack - yeah, i have had same issue pretty much since i bought it all those years ago. The wear is always on the outside edge of the nearside front tyre. i had tracking laser checked, balancing,air pressure, etc....could never get to the bottom of it.

it's not even as though the journey home takes me on a sweeping right bend which would at least help to provide an answer.

Try to lift the car when engine on... it resetting all sensors... 

second: each sensor you can easy test... (it's a low chance is the sensor because if one is faulty then front or rear going up.

check faults... it might be problem with air suspension ecu.

Me too. But I bought an Ebay Techstream Diagnostics tool to be able to read the sensors and solenoids.

Part of the tool is also an active test where you can set the height of a wheel separately. Everything works fine, all solenoids open en close when activated, height readings also reflect the up and down movement. In the tool is also an option to give an offset to a sensor in case it's not perfectly mounted. To be able to give such an offset the tool asks you for a service manual value and an from that you can put in your adjustment.

I've been searching for a proper RX300 manual where I can find these values, but no luck so far. Also it would be nice to know what the height sensor must indicate when the car is in LOW, NORMAL or HIGH position. Guess I'll go for the option mentioned to disconnect the Battery when I have set the car 'straight' in NORMAL. Or has anyone a better suggestion??

cheers Sandor

If one corner is higher, it's usually the height controller in that corner that needs replacing.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
