AUTO ACCESS HEIGHT

NOTES

Auto access height operation is more efficient and smooth with the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) applied and the brake pedal completely released.

Auto access height automatically lowers the electronic air suspension to the access height setting, when the vehicle is parked. See ACCESS HEIGHT.

Select the Vehicle settings and Convenience features instrument panel menus to enable or disable the auto access height feature. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

Auto access height only operates if:

See TERRAIN RESPONSE OPERATION.

Auto access height initially lowers the suspension height up to 20 mm below the normal height setting, after any of the following events:

  • The ignition is switched off.

  • An occupied seat belt is unbuckled.

    NOTES

    If the second row outer seat belts are buckled, then unbuckling the centre seat belt does not initiate a suspension height change.

    NOTES

    Unbuckling a third row seat belt does not initiate a suspension height change.

If a door is opened, after the initial suspension lowering, auto access height lowers the suspension to 50 mm below the normal height setting.

NOTES

If a door is not subsequently opened and the vehicle’s speed exceeds 25 mph (40 km/h), the suspension height returns to the normal height setting.

Auto access height lowers the suspension height to 40 mm below the normal height setting, if a door is opened before any of the following events:

  • The ignition is switched off.

  • An occupied seat belt is unbuckled.

To lower the vehicle to the full access height setting, press the down button (2). The full access height setting is 50 mm below the normal height setting.

Auto access height can be activated until 90 seconds after the vehicle becomes stationary.

Auto access height only operates once for each time the vehicle is stationary. If further operations are required while at the same location, use the instrument panel menus to disable and enable the auto access feature again. Alternatively, drive the vehicle at a speed above 7 km/h (4 mph) for 3 seconds, or at a speed of more than 15 km/h (9 mph).

NOTES

The once only operation also applies if the vehicle has been stationary for more than 90 seconds without activating auto access height. If a door is opened after 90 seconds, the instrument panel displays a timed-out message.

Auto access height does not operate in the following conditions:

  • If the suspension has entered into extended mode. See EXTENDED MODE.

  • If the vehicle is parked on excessive inclines or declines, or on a very uneven surface.

  • If there are insufficient air reserves in the electronic air suspension system. In this event, the instrument panel displays a temporarily unavailable message when a door is next opened.
