    2004 Audi A8 Air Suspension help please

    Ill start of with saying thanks for the help in advance.

    I have a Audi A8 and it has been awhile sense I have posted a forum, (Guess that's a good thing)..

    The problem I'm having is I was parked waiting for a car in front of me to turn and when I took off my car felt like I had a flat tire.
    I pulled over and the tires are fine! I noticed right away that the front suspension was to the ground, while the back was just fine. The tires are rubbing and to close for comfort, so obviously I must have a leak? I hear the compressor turn on and the car goes up but then right back down slowly.. My question is how does one look for leak without a lift? I will use a spray bottle with soap and water but where should I start? Here is a complete Auto Scan to help..

    Thank you for posting an Auto-Scan without having to beat it out of you.

    Looks like we have two issues here. The 00776 code for the G78 sensor, unplug the sensor and take a look. Is there rot at the electrical connector?

    Rule of thumb, 01577 tends to be a leak, the pump has to run all the time to try and keep the system aired up. But the pump isn't made to run all the time, it will get too hot if it doesn't get to rest, so the Level Control Module will shut it down when it starts to overheat. I'm kind of thinking you've got a classic case of blown bags.

    You may find this post helpful for testing.

    Auto-Scan, learn it, love it, live it... then check the fuses.

    Jef, thanks for the reply!! I will first start off with the sensor is free of anything I know it needed to be replaced because I couldn't do basic learning to the headlights, because of this i just coded the can-gateway saying I didn't have the headlights so I didn't get the annoying sound.
    So how can I tell what bag is the problem? Do I have to replace the whole thing? Can they be rebuilt? What's the cheapest route?
    Thanks.

    I also got a new scan that finally shows a leak has been detected ,I didn't want to throw up another scan without knowing how to put it into a scrolling box lol. Any guidance? I forgot it's been to long.

    i ran into a problem with that style sensor before for the auto leveling headlights if it show 0.02 for a return voltage then it has failed. unhook the arm and move it up and down while looking at live data if it doesnt change i would suspect failure on the level sensor. what i did to check was i sent a 2 volts up the return wire while looking at live data to see if it displays that voltage and it did which then shows all other parts of the system is operable. hope this helps. and another test i did was i sent 5 volts to the sensor and ground then measured the return voltage while moving the arm thats the bench test. good luck

    Thanks Steven, I will tell you it worked until for awhile I was leaking coolant and didn't know it. I had a leak from my coolant reservoir and it leak into the sensor the whole time. I haven't checked what you stated because well I just didn't lol. I was paying close attention to my air leak. Any thought on this?

    I sprayed both sides with soap and water and the driver side is white. It was worse until I cleaned it up. Is that part in the strut a part that can be replaced? Or sealed? Thanks.

    Hi jef, thanks for you help. I sprayed both struts and let it settle and noticed on my driver side there was white at the top of the strut where the air line goes into.

    Is this part able to be replaced or sealed? This would be better than dropping the money right now for a new strut. Thanks so much for the help.
