On the way home tonight, I noticed that all 3 of the lights were on for the Active Suspension buttons. When I pressed any of the buttons, the lights stayed on, but the car did change its ride.<p>Now whenever I start the car, the selected setting light comes on, but after a minute of driving the advanced light comes and stays on.<p>Big deal? I could pull the cables and reset the car, but it will be much easier hassling the dealer <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> when it goes in next week <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Electrical gremlins are the worst. Intermitent electrical gremlins are the worstest.

Sounds like your car really wants to drive in advanced...<p>I personally like the cool "Knight Rider" effect of these suspension buttons. <p><A HREF="http://ss.otheron.com/rkelly/video/4Cbuttons.MOV" TARGET="_blank">http://ss.otheron.com/rkelly/video/4Cbuttons.MOV</A>

If you do not get the warning message "Chassis service required" it is <br>most likely just a faulty switch under the bottons and the dealer can replace and it should be fixed<p>

Ended up being a faulty Suspension Module. Sometimes the drain for the A/C becomes dislodged (or clogged) and the condensation buildup ends up leaking on the SUM as well.
