QL: System cooling down

Last winter I had occasional issues with the air suspension NOT going down in Park mode with the EVIC reporting " system cooling down". I thought I might have been using it too frequently (I lower it every time I park) but then no problems all spring and summer until now again. It seems to be affected by the cold weather and it's only when going down in park mode.
Anyone else with such issues?

Has the system ever been worked on?

Re: QL: System cooling down

The temps are not that cold, in the 30's F and the system has never been worked on. What's interesting is that I would expect this in very hot weather if I were playing around with the lift system but this usually happens after a very short drive and never occurred in warm temps.
Since no one else may have experienced this, I'll mention it on my next service.

Re: QL: System cooling down

I would definitely have it looked at. Last time I received the "system cooling down" message, I got a new compressor. But, this was happening when it wasn't cold so I don't know if yours would be the same or not. There's a foot of snow outside and it's about 20 deg F right now and I didn't have issues driving into work this morning with QL.

Thanks, glad to hear that I'm not the only one and that something can be done. I'm not too worried since it's quite intermitent but I will have the dealership look at it.

Re: QL: System cooling down

Check out this thread... http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=30797

Mine would happen after a signifigant, rapid change in temp and sometimes just for the heck of it, but I've detailed my experience and resolution in the thread.
