Big Question...

Was outside putting all the Christmas light bins away... And my SB's air pump started hammering away... NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN... AND THEN turned off.

No keys in inginition. Hasn't been driven in 4 months. Is this NORMAL?

If not, Could explain why battery doesn't last long in my SB when I don't drive it for 5 months at a time?

How do I fix?

Did you open and close the door before it happened?

After switching the car off the air suspension remains active for one hour. From 0 - 59 minutes only venting is allowed providing all doors are closed. At 60 minutes, if trim height is low, the module will raise the car to trim height or run the compressor for 23 seconds if this is not achieved. At 61 minutes the air suspension system is switched off.

I say normal. Mines done it too. If it only needed to refill a little bit after 4 months, I Would say your bags are holding air GOOD!

Well... OK... I can say that it caught me completely off guard.. As it must have been right at the 50 min later mark.

I've never heard either car's pump run while parked.

Thank you for putting my mind at ease.

No about the batter tender... Do you run the cord up though bottom of car engine bay so you can close the hood? Do you then leave a note on the steering wheel that reads, "Hey bonehead, before you put key in ignition... Unhook the battery tender!" So some knucklehead doesn't start it with tender hooked up?

I do mine hood cracked open with cord off the top of the fender and the tender sitting on a bar stool chair. Car cover on top

Of course I have 16 cars so a tender isn't dedicated to just one toy
