Switch and others things

Hi all,

Just got our AutoCruise Starblazer this weekend and we are looking around and found some things which we dont know what they are.

One is a switch next to the steering wheel, On and Off switch and the other thing is:
A black box behind the drivers and passage seat, which also has a bar gauge and on the gauge it says Kunh Auto Technic.
Does anyone know what it could be?




Thanks

Brent

Hi, photographs would be a great help. There are lots of switches to the left or right of steering wheels.

Definitely aftermarket and possibly a compressor has been fitted. Or maybe again you have air bag assisted suspension?

hi
it looks as if you have air bags fitted to the van

climb under the back and have a look

quite often pumped up to around 2 bar to raise the rear and make it stiffer

any where between 1.5 and 5 bar as required

looks like the fitting is a tyre valve so just pot a pump on it even a foot pump and pump it up a bit

No. The real benefits come when you're driving in terms of stability and ride comfort. With trial and error you should arrive at the best pressure.

The gauge is definitely for an air suspension system. It looks to be a simple one where you use an external pump (foot or electric) to pressurise it.

I'm thinking that if you unscrew the brass cap, you'll find a standard schrader type valve to attach the pump. After pressurising, refit the brass cap, and you can press the button to release the pressure.

The idea is to pump the system up for travelling (I use about 3 bar) and then let the air out when leaving the van unused for a lengthy period. No need to let the air out for normal parking. The system helps support the standard suspension and will noticeably reduce roll on roundabouts etc.

No idea what the switch is for, torch and mirror to trace the wiring, I think.

I'm daft and proud of it.
