Hey guys...love the fourms here....first post aswell..

I have a 1989 DA LTD, when i start my car almost everytime my trip computer/clock thing beeps at me. It does 3 short beeps.

Now i know that is warning me of something but it doesnt specify eg-
when my self-leveling suspesnion started to play up, the trip computer/clock thing beeped at me and on my dash cluster a little "Check Suspension" thing lit up. So i was just woundering if anyone can help me find out why it beeps at me...and possibly how to fix it.

Cheers dudes
Dave

i had same prob in my ghia

if you check your rear shocks u will probably find the air bags are perished and leaking air

cure:replace with monroe gt/kyb or simular - you will also have to change springs

disconnect compressor
