    Pot Hole and Shocks

    Just came back from a nice ride came off highway and WHACK! Sound like the front right then about 20 seconds later a warning about a shock showed up on dash but couldn't read if fast enough and now a suspension rattle. Steering straight still seems alright, pulled right front wheel off but don't see anything obvious so maybe the rear? With the dash warning sounds like it's an internal issue with shock? which ever one it maybe... Any suggestions? Thanks

    Clear code went about 50 ft light came on cannot turn on sport suspension, no rattles suspension looks ok. Did the VCDS to test electrical signal for shock check ok then after test drive showed error. Ran a comparison to left front shock feed back showed what wasn't happening. Another fault code said there was a short.

    Address 14: Susp. Elect. (420 910 376 )

    0.186 A Valve Current Front Left
    3.9 % Pulse Width Front Left
    0.000 A Valve Current Front Right
    0.0 % Pulse Width Front Right

    next thing was to check wiring harness that maybe pinched or disconnected can't see much need to dig remove trunk covers but is it a internal issue? Can I turn the mag ride system off through coding? I can live with that until a get a new air ride setup...

    Re: Pot Hole and Shocks

    I ended up replaceing all the shocks it was quite a while ago with some used ones might have been from a member from this site. I believe the shock in question was damaged internally and probably from lack of fluid as i had a couple of them leaking. I would hear thump or bottom out when i hit a good bump.
    Replacement shocks fixed all issues and improved handleing all around.
    A year after that i went to air ride suspension

    Thanks for reply! Was hoping open circuit just meant a loose connection. Did you end up selling your mag struts?
