Is the Ride Optimization System in Your Land Rover Bothering You?Posted on April 12, 2019
Land Rovers are durable, sturdy, and powerful vehicles that are able to handle rough terrain while keeping you comfortable. They are able to offer you all of this without sacrificing any important luxury components. Even though these well-designed vehicles were made for handling tough conditions, they can still experience problems.
What is the Ride Optimization System?
Is the ride optimization system in your Land Rover bothering you? Even though the suspension of a Land Rover is built for endurance, it is also made with comfort in mind. To get this comfort, the vehicle is fitted with a ride optimization system.
The ride optimization system is designed to make the ride comfortable for its passengers. This tech-based feature learns your driving habits and is able to recognize when you are driving under certain circumstances. It will, in turn, adjust various systems so that you’re optimized for these conditions. Unfortunately, this system can fail and affect the smoothness of your ride causing it to be bumpy.
Along with the failure of the ride optimization system, you may begin to notice other suspension problems. This is due to the fact that when the system fails it is no longer helping to protect other components. These other components are then more inclined to become damaged and fail.
These are the most common problems that you should keep an eye out for:
Air Compressor Failure
Your suspension in your Land Rover is designed to fill airbags with air. This aids in raising your vehicle off of the ground helping to support its weight and cushion your ride.
If the suspension leaks air, it will not be able to provide a smooth ride.
Deteriorating Air Springs
Springs will deteriorate over time due to normal wear and tear, but without the ride optimization system helping to optimize the smoothness of your ride they will wear even faster.
Symptoms of Suspension System Issues
When your system fails and you begin to experience the above issues, you will begin to notice symptoms that are signs of suspension system issues.
Your vehicle will sit lower than it normally does
This is caused by the airbags in the suspension system not functioning properly. They are not able to hold the air needed, or they are not being given the air needed to support the weight of the vehicle.
When traveling over bumps, the ride will feel rough
When the airbags are not performing properly, you will feel bumps more intensely inside the vehicle.
