Hi, I've just replaced my rear springs and all four adjustable shocks as they were stuffed. When I last played around with them a few years ago they were adjusting from sport to non-sport and back with no problems - I could hear the actuators working. This time though, the actuators are not working - I checked them visually and they are not moving, however the dash board lights are indicating sport or non-sport when I press the ECS button.
The sensor for the 4WD & diff lock is playing up and is indicating that the diff is locked but I can't see that interfering with the shocks though.
Has anyone any thoughts on where to look first?

Cheers, Andy

If the Dash indicator is lighting up as SPORT or switching off then it means they are working.
Though you should be able to hear the actuator moving, when you first turn on the ignition, as it does it's self diagnosis  (NB: by that I mean someone sat next to the wheels, not from the driving position.

You cannot physically see the actuators moving, as all moving parts are internal in the actuator and shock absorber.

NB: only Mitsubishi OEM units work with the ECS system.

Hi Lewis, the shocks are oem ones so are compatible and I tested the two of the actuators before fitting them to the shocks and was able to see no movement so am struggling with where to start. Do you know where the control unit is located so I can check the wiring out as a starting point?
Cheers, Andy

I've been looking for that since 2006, with no luck so far.  Confused

Of course Crying or Very sad! -- I have assumed that if the dash light is coming on, it has power, I guess I should confirm this me thinks.

Morning,
I never got very far with trying to get this sorted, to be honest I haven't revisited it till today.  I spotted on the Internet that there is a "Variable Suspension Control Unit - MB921937" for sale, so presumably I have one fitted somewhere however it is not something I have come across.
I spent an hour this morning looking at every page of the Mitsi Electrical Wiring Workshop Manual looking for any mention of suspension to try to find any fuses, relays or reference to the control unit and there was nothing.
Does anyone know where the control unit is located or which fuses and relays are used as I am totally flumuxed by this.

Cheers, Andy

It should be behind the panel to the right of the Accelerator pedal.

I've been trying to find those for years and still can't work out which combination fuse it is linked to, as there definitely isn't an individual one.  Sad  Confused
