Hi,

I recently loaded my S500 with quite a heavy load, including some cases in the boot and 3 people. When I turned on the ignition the "Airmatic, Stop Car too low" message appeared.

I have never seen this message before and I couldn't beleive the car was overloaded. I then pressed the Vehicle Raise button to raise the car and then switched it off again. The message went away and there were no reported malfunctions. The car felt and handled fine.

It has not returned again. I was wondering whether this message displays briefly whilst the Airmatic is responding to the heavy load and raising the car or whether this is indicative of some malfunction. As I have not seen it again, I can only assume that it was temporary. Any advise welcomed.

thanks

DB1

Had it on mine, some sort of pump failed (apparently a common failure on S500s that have done about 35k). It gave a similar message, just check with your dealer
