Default Every time i start my truck

I get a message in the evic saying "battery low,start vehicle to raise suspension". Is anyone with air suspension experiencing this. I'm wondering just how often is the system self leveling (while sitting in the garage) that it's draining the battery.

Is it just the message or is your vehicle actually struggling to start due to low battery voltage?

Grub out!

I have gotten this message sporadically the 2 plus months of ownership, maybe 4 to 6 times total. Each time the motor cranks strongly, and off I go. Could be there is a very conservative voltage threshold for level change inputs without the motor running?

Starts fine. It's just the message.

Hopefully that's all it is. With winter on its way, don't want to get caught out In the cold with a dead battery.

Thanks for the replies.
