Crazy air gauge behavior!

I have an intermittent recycling low air warning on mainly the rear air circuit, but sometimes on the front circuit of my 2003 Journey DL. Gauges will jump from 0 to 150 and then eventually settle back to normal. Brakes and air bags are working fine but the buzzer drives us crazy! Any suggestions?

Fill tanks, turn engine off, listen for air leaks under the dash, and around outside of MH. The under the dash could be the connector on the air guage. My 2008 had an air gauge leak and was fixed under warranty.

I had a similar problem, where the buzzers would sound and the gauges go to zero and then come back to life (usually when we'd driven over a bump in the road).

I fixed ours by following the attached procedure (all credits to the authors), and it's cured mine permanently.

Hope this helps

This IS the correct solution to the VDC problem. It sounds difficult, but is not, if you know how to solder. The intermittent gauges drove us crazy for a while, but once we made the fix, it has been rock solid. Dont expect a mechanic to be able to do this. IT is purely a DIY , notinthebook fix.

My soldering skills arenít the best so I took my VDC to the local electronic repair shop, 5 minutes and $10.00 later it was good to go.
