Air Suspension Configuration Device

Applies To:

Item: 7980
For LR3 (MY '05-'09) & Range Rover Sport (MY '06-'09)

7980

Caution: To understand the different modes of operation and to become familiar with the signals that the module will provide, it is important that you read through these instructions before beginning the suspension configuration.

Introduction

This Quick Reference Guide provides the information you need to configure applicable vehicles for either 4 Corner Coil Spring Suspension or 4 Corner Air Suspension using the Atlantic British Air Suspension Configuration Device. Please ensure that the device is applicable to your vehicle before attempting the configuration process.

General Overview

The Atlantic British Air Suspension Configuration Device configures a vehicle by connecting to the diagnostic socket and updating the settings stored in a number of Electronic Control Units (ECUs).

The device has two modes of operation:

  • 1. Configure the vehicle for 4 Corner Coil Springs.
  • 2. Configure the vehicle for 4 Corner Air Suspension.

IMPORTANT! The device will automatically store the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of the first vehicle that it is connected to. It will then be permanently locked to that vehicle.

Device Overview

Before You Start:

  • Ensure that the battery is fully charged.
  • Ensure the vehicle is in Park / Neutral with the Parking Brake applied.
  • It is recommended that the headlights are turned off throughout the configuration process.
  • Do not start the engine at any point during the configuration process.
  • Do not open or close any doors during the configuration process.
  • Locate the Diagnostic Connector (ODBII). (See Figures 1 & 2).
  • Plug the #7980 device into the Diagnostic socket. (See Figure 3).

General Operation

Power Up

The device powers up automatically when it is inserted into the vehicles diagnostic socket.

When the device powers up it will emit two short tones and flash the orange LED rapidly. A series of checks will then be performed to ensure that the configuration process can commence.

If these checks pass the device will emit a further 3 short tones before becoming silent and flashing the orange and green LEDs alternately twice a second. The device is now ready to configure the vehicle.

If the checks do not pass the sounder will emit a continuous on / off tone and the LEDs will flash alternately.

Refer to the Troubleshooting section (See Table #2) for help in diagnosing the reason for the failure.

Selecting a Mode of Operation

Both modes of operation are accessed using the 'mode selection button' located at the rear of the device.

In order to select the mode of operation you must hold this button down for a set period of time until the sounder emits a tone indicating that the required mode has been activated. The mode button can then be released to commence the configuration process.

Table #1 below describes how to select the operating modes using this button.

Table #1

Mode
Action
Coil Spring Configuration

Press and hold the mode selection button for 3 seconds until a single long tone is emitted.

 

Air Suspension Configuration
Continue to hold the mode selection button down for a further 3 seconds until 2 long tones are emitted.
Cancel
Continue to hold the mode selection button down for a further 3 seconds until 3 long tones are emitted.

If the button is held down continuously the device will cycle through the modes until it is released.

During Operation

Once a mode of operation has been selected the configuration process will commence automatically.

In order to configure the vehicle the device must reprogram a number of ECUs, perform a complete vehicle reset and clear all fault codes.

During this process a number of interior / warning lights may flash and faults may be logged. This is normal and can usually be ignored.

Throughout configuration the device will emit one long tone per second and flash one of the LEDs once per second (green for coil spring mode, orange for air suspension mode). The entire process should last approximately 1 minute.

If configuration is successful, the device will emit one long tone per second and flash the orange and green LEDs alternately.

If configuration fails the device will emit 2 long tones per second and the orange and green LEDs will flash alternately twice per second.

Once the reconfiguration operation has completed the ignition must be cycled twice to clear any error messages logged during the process.

Identifying Configured Mode

It is possible to identify the mode the vehicle is currently configured to by observing the height adjustment indicator light located next to the height adjustment button.

  • 1. Insert the ignition key and turn the ignition on (position II).
  • 2. Wait for the vehicle self checks to complete (approx. 30 seconds).

If the vehicle is configured for 4 Corner Air Suspension the height adjustment indicator light will be illuminated.

If the vehicle is configures for 4 Corner Coil Springs the height adjustment indicator light will not be illuminated.

Configuration Procedure

1. Double check that the parking brake is applied, then insert the ignition key and turn the ignition on (position II).

2. Wait for the vehicle self checks to complete (approx. 30 seconds).

3. Plug the configuration device into the diagnostic socket, ensuring that you are not holding down the mode selection button.

4. Wait for the device to power up and indicate that it is ready to configure the vehicle. (See "Power Up" Section).

5. Select the required mode of operation. (See Table #1).

6. Wait for the device to complete the configuration process and indicate that it was successful.

7. Remove the configuration device from the diagnostic socket.

8. Turn the ignition off and remove the ignition key.

9. Wait for 30 seconds.

10. Insert the ignition key and turn the ignition on (position II).

11. Wait for the vehicle self checks to complete (approx. 30 seconds).

12. Repeat steps 8, 9, 10 and 11.

13. The configuration process is now complete and all faults should have been cleared.

PLEASE NOTE: While the successful completion of the Re-Flash will eliminate any and all error messages from the Instrument Pack display, the "Air Suspension Warning Indicator" will be illuminated as seen in Figure #4.
