VB Air Suspension Fuse Location?

This should have a light on at all times, correct??

Will try to search in the next stop, but just in case someone here knows....

1) Should a light be on at all times?

2) Where is the fuse for this located?

Thank you!

WACHUKO - all lights out when rolling (unless some fault occured). Rear axle light turns on when in Park & handbrake lever pulled up at least 1 click (as long as engine running or in extend-run-time right after ignition is turned off). That signifies rear axle only is available for manual adjust using up/down arrow (front axle is not selectable). You already found fuse

EDIT: Please excuse really fuzzy & old photo (my controller location is different now). But you can clearly see engine running/idling, parking brake on, gear shift in Park, and VB Air in ride height with only rear axle blue led on. As soon as I release parking brake, system will still try to re-adjust to ride height (which it already is, so will take only a sec or few of up/down arrows lit) and all lights will be off when I roll

How you explained it is how ours works so far. Our fuses are labels as you found them, under the driver seat too.

Oh, I know that feeling all to well. Figuring out new things leads to a bit of curiosity yet mixed with pinch of anxiety. We are on our second week of ownership and absorbing all the info we can get. Thankfully there are great members on this forum!

Happy and safe travels!

WACHUKO - forgot to ask, since you already had concern, did you actually measure it works? My ride height is approx. 4.5" from slammed (lowest). And max height is approx. 1.5" from ride height. For total deviation of approx. 6" from slammed to max. height. I make my measurements from bumper, which not same as axle clearance ( which is less).

Yes. I played with it when I parked. My concern is that, for the most part, using the available adjustment has allowed me to level the AI in most places without the need of leveling blocks... So imagine my concern when I thought it had stopped working... I was going to have to interact with my wife and the leveling blocks!

Quick question, when driving, do you hear sounds/beeps/chimes coming from the unit? Some times I see the display lighting up red, yellow... can remember the color... but randomly I can hear it. Not often, mind you... Since you have it right within line of sight, what do you see from it while on the road?

I need to do what you did and just move it to a visible location and within easier reach... not sure why the heck it was not installed like that. Instead it was placed on the side where nobody can see it...

WACHUKO - yes, but it happens very quickly, split second type stuff, especially when road is not smooth but bouncy (or cross-windy), coz it's going through ride height adjustments many times per sec. This can also happen a lot when you stop even for just a min, then come back to restart. It just means it's working. But if the LEDs turn on with the Check red led and stays on, even if it eventually turn off, it encountered an error. Make note of which LEDs are on, then decipher that combo from the error code list.

Yeah, PITA to relocate controller, especially if you want to fish cabling into the dash, which means unsoldering the wiring but we'll worth the effort now that I have in front
