When does your Quadra Lift Air compressor run?

I have noticed that if I am hanging out doing something in the Garage after a drive I hear the air compressor for the suspension come on occasionally. This weekend I was at an event where several of us were sitting on the back of the cargo area and even though the engine had been off for hours, it kept leveling each time we sat down or got out of the cargo area.

I guess I assumed all that went off when the key was off and not nearby.
Is this normal?

Jeep will attempt to level itself after it is shut off. Unusual feature, but normal behavior for your vehicle.

Yes, as Bill stated, normal, but unsettling. Mine does it as well.

The best is when you have it up on ramps to change the oil and it lowers the front/raises the rear to try to level. I scooted out from under there FAST....

That's what happens when you don't first place the suspension in tire/jack mode.

Re: When does your Quadra Lift Air compressor run?

Oil changes are so easy when the air suspension is in ORA2 position. No other lifting needed.
