Calibrate Airmatic Suspension

Open PC Retriever software and select ‘Mercedes’

Select the correct chassis.  The airmatic suspension is found on the 220, 219, and 211 chassis from 1999.

It can be distinguished by small clear air lines going to the upper part of the strut under the hood.  This system can be mistaken for Active Body Control (ABC).

Select ‘Suspension’ from the next menu.

Then select ‘Activations’

Click on the box to the left of ‘Calibrate Suspension Automatically’

This message will pop up. Click Continue.

When ready, click on the Start button.

You will notice that the vehicle will start to rise from the front then to the back. 

If the vehicle does not rise, and you don’t hear the pump, then you know to diagnosis the pump system.
