Air Suspension

Post by jsauc002 » Mon Aug 24, 2015 1:26 pm



My 2004 GoldWing Air Suspension keeps pumping up to max Pressure. When I decrease air pressure and let go of button it by itself will start pumping up on its own. I t will max itself out.
Gold Wing is on a Motor Trike Kit.

Maybe the button is not releasing all the way. Try cleaning it with contact cleaner NOT WD 40

First, you do not have "air" suspension!
It is a hydraulic preload pump.
Most likely, as already posted, the switch is stuck.
I would not use WD40!
I would use contact cleaner.

It may not be the up or down button that is stuck, I would suspect one of the "Mode" buttons either Mode1 or Mode 2
The button may be pre-programed for a max load and be stuck which would take you back to that setting
Good Luck
