    leveling light comes on flashing after replacing rear shock absorbers(help please)

    hey guys i just replaced my rear air ride shocks with koni yellow adjustable sport shocks. my leveling light comes on when people or heavy things are in my car which i think indicates that it is tripping the sensor that tells the leveling system whether or not to compress air. i have to go get my leveling system disabled but im jsut curious as to if this is causing my car any problem. has anyone ever done the same replacement?

    That is common, CateraMV6 has a post with some steps on how to either A trip the sensor so it does not think it needs to pump, or B remove the compressor. There are other things that can be done to remedy this, search here and cateraowners.forumotion.com for more info.

    I have a super simple solution... look under the car to the passenfer side of the pumpkin is a mecanisum.. that is where the air pump is triggered. there is a plastic coupling, remove it and lift the arm up and zip tie it.. dont lift it way um just up and inch or so. your leval light will never come on and the pump will never be triggered. there is another option also.. let me know and I will take a photo and show u. I did it on mine when I replaced and bypassed the factry ride with a manual fill air ride shock.
