How to Calibrate Mercedes Airmatic control unit by Autel DS708

How to troubleshoot a Mercedes-Benz S-Class that lowers itself when parked?

In some cases, the car will drop itself overnight but not always. If the vehicle is parked on an incline or downhill the raising or lowering may stop working. There are many reasons lead to this malfunction. Mercedes-Benz with airmatic suspension tries to level itself when parked and end up with lowering near to the ground. But the vehicle may try to level itself unsuccessfully when one level sensor is broken, or the rod is bent. This may cause your Mercedes-Benz self-level too high or too low.

24-0

What’s the Symptoms?

The following problems may occur on Mercedes-Benz E, C, CLK, GL, S-Class

-You hear air compressor engaging when parked.

-Air compressor releases air when parked.

-Car lowers overnight, not always.

-Mercedes lowers drops on rear or front.

-Mercedes raises itself when parked

Cause

When the car is parked the airmatic will try to level the car. It does this by discharging air from the airmatic suspension strut that is too high. Typically the MaxiDAS DS708 is leveled by lowering the one or two corners of the car that are too high. We also have seen cases when an incorrect installation of the level sensor caused the airmatic trying to level the car by increasing air pressure at certain strut, therefore, raising the car to the maximum setting.

The cause of this problem is usually one of the level sensors. Each of these sensors has two hall effect sensors inside.

B22/8 Left Front Level Sensor

B22/9 Right Front Level Sensor

B22/3 Rear Axle Level Sensor

The two front level sensors are located at the air suspension struts. In some models, you will only find one sensor at the rear axle. In this case, it measures the position of the torsion bar which provides an average vehicle height for both rear wheels. Mercedes – suspension – airmatic – strut

The level sensors measure the current height of the vehicle, and those reading are stored on the airmatic control unit.

24-1

How to solve Mercedes-Benz raises or lowers when parked?

The level sensors measure the current height of the vehicle, and those reading are stored on the airmatic control unit.

So, you need to do:

1.inspect the level sensors first

1)Inspect the front level sensors.
make sure there is no bending of the arm, no damaged of the wires. If you performed any suspension repair ensure that the level sensor at the front airmatic strut is not installed backward.

2)Inspect the level sensor at the rear torsion bar.
Ensure the connecting rod is not bent.

2.If the sensors do not have any physical damage, your next step is to carry a vehicle level calibration.

you can pay to do level calibration in a workshop, or you can perform it yourself if you have a scanner capable of performing airmatic troubleshooting. You will need a scanner that provides similar capabilities to Mercedes Star Diagnostic and allows you to scan multiple control systems in your Mercedes-Benz including programming, actuating and calibrating sensors.

Below is how to access the airmatic control unit and calibration using the Autel MaxiDAS DS708 diagnostic scanner.

Autel Maxidas DS808 full kit fit small repair shop

Autel Maxidas DS808 full kit fit small repair shop – affordable price and good performance

I have the first generation Autel Maxidas DS708 for many years, I love it because of its reasonable price and cost efficient function, but what a pity that it will not be updated any more.

Then you consider to have one Autel MaxiDAS DS808K full kit which adds extra special functions i.e injector coding, key coding, adaptation, ECU information, trouble codes, freeze frame, live data, active test and special functions. I have one small repair shop and have many different car brands fix, DS808 can fully meet my requirements.

It has many different vehicles’ diagnostic adapters which are not standard 16pin(see following pic). Maxidas DS808 is compatible to many US, European, Asian vehicles, user friendly and has software for different vehicle models and systems.

16-1
16-2
Its new CPU and LCD touch screen (7″ LCD 1024×600 resolution touch scrren), dramatically improved the entire users’experience, much more smooth comparing with DS708. Personally, I would recommend DS808 for those small shops with limit budgets. Of course, if money is not a problem, Maxisys Elite may be your good choice.It is smaller than ms906, so very handy.

Autel DS808 Users’ talk:

1.I think DS708 is the first generation of iconic device for Autel, because of its reasonable price and cost efficient function. I owned one DS708 for many years, but regret that it will not be updated any more. So I intended to add its new extended version- DS808 for my small repair shop, which can fully meet my requirements. Its new CPU and LCD touch screen, dramatically improved the entire users’ experience, much more smooth comparing with DS708. Personally, I would recommend this tool for those small shops with limit budgets. Of course, if money is not a problem, Maxisys Elite may be your good choice.

2.Actually I’m self-maintainer not a shop guy, I already have Diaglink but need more professional device, which can help me do some features as adaptation or Matching & lots of things. I do like MS908P but expensive, so I’m buying DS808, affordable price and good performance.

3.Compatible to my cars,it seems it is compatible to many US, European’Asian vehicles ,user friendly and has software for different vehicle models and systems. Very handy and has different adapters for the car models, I will use the equipment to scan and diagnose. Would recommend this product. Worth the money! And Motorzone send me a free headset.Sounds good.

Autel DS808 frequently-asked questions and answers:

Question: Can you use this to program new keys?

Answer: Yes you can reprogram keys with this tester

Question: can you program the abs module with this?

Answer: DS808 cannot program the abs module. Only maxisys pro can do it.

Question: Is it difficult to register this device? And can it support Spanish?

Answer: Registering the device was easy. You simply go to autel’s website and set up an account. Once you do that you take the registration code/passcode from the scan tool and register it on the website. You then make sure that the scan tool is hooked up to your wifi which is setup in settings. Then you are ready to update the scan tool with the latest software.

Changing the language settings is also easy. You simply do that in settings as well and have multiple different choices. I do know Spanish was one of them. I returned mine because it could not code or reset any adaptaions in any modules on my vehicles. My vehicles are about 15 years old and I think the support on older vehicles goes away with the updates. It probably has more capabilities on the newer vehicles. I should have purchased one of these 5 years ago and never updated it so that the scan tool could retain its capabilities.

Question: What is the head set used for with the scantool

Answer: It’s not used with the tool is just a free give away to get you to buy an outdated tool that according to autel there will be no more updates after Dec 2017. I sent it back because I couldn’t get it to update or more like it removed software during update which is another common complaint on their site. I feel it’s dishonest to sell things claiming a year full updates and it’s not a year is much less than a year but I guess China isn’t afraid of a class action for fraud.
