Can I "switch off" the suspension on my C5

Post by hamster99 » 22 Nov 2014, 10:39

Title might sound a bit strange but I want to stop my C5 suspension moving when I have it jacked up.

I know I can disconnect the battery but I will need to start the engine periodically and don't want to have to run through the battery reconnection sequence every time!

Is there a connector or fuse I can just disconnect to the hydraulic pump or will that mess up other things too. I have a lexia if that makes a difference.

Have you first raised it to the max height before jacking it up?
It should stay there until told otherwise.

Yes I put it on maximum then jacked it up but when I open the door to start it up the pump runs and I'm worried that front, back or both will drop.

Unless there is a fault is shouldn't move if you have left it in high.
You could just unplugs the 2 connectors in the BHI if you are worried.

The large connector behind the headlight will do, you just unlatch it with no need to remove it. :)
