A set of decommissioning for the chassis of a car is useful, for example, when the chassis is changed and by coilover is replaced. In the tuning area, the so-called decommissioning rate is therefore used, which is available from different providers for different vehicles. But what is a decommissioning rate and what is it specifically needed for? These and other questions about the decommissioning rate are answered below.
Decommissioning rate - what does that mean?
A decommissioning set is required for the chassis of the car. However, only if the car has an electronic damping force adjustment. The installation of such an article is intended to prevent an error message from appearing when changing the chassis. It is intended to deactivate the electronic damper force adjustment and should shut it down. The decommissioning is usually only intended for the standard damper regulation to prevent error messages. The function of the control unit remains unchanged.
Electronic damper regulation for what?
The electronic damper control automatically adapts to the alignment of the adaptive chassis control. The adaptive chassis control enables a sporty, comfortable or normal alignment of the chassis. The adaptive chassis control can usually only be found in the upper class as well as in off-road vehicles and convertibles in older vehicle models. But the adaptive chassis control is becoming more and more established in mid-range models and even in compact vehicles it is available at an additional cost.
Decommissioning kit for chassis replacement
If you want to replace your suspension while tuning, you will receive an error message without a decommissioning kit. The new undercarriage can be easily installed if the other undercarriage is shut down electronically. The decommissioning kit is available for standard damper control and is therefore useful when changing the chassis. The control units of the car are often coupled to each other so that an existing error message can also affect other components in the vehicle. Even if everything is installed correctly from a technical point of view, it can still result in the vehicle not moving a millimeter. The articles are commercially available for certain chassis and vehicle types and can also be purchased for third-party products.
What are the properties of the decommissioning rate?
The suspension set for the chassis deactivates the standard damper control and offers the following advantages:
- prevents an error message when changing the chassis
- is only intended for standard damper regulation
- maintains the function of the control unit completely
- is also available for third-party products
Are there alternatives to the decommissioning rate?
In tuning forums it is discussed whether the decommissioning kit is necessary. An alternative to using a decommissioning rate is given. For example, it is proposed to unplug cables from the damper and the center console switch so that there is no error message when changing the chassis. The suggestions are made to save the money for a decommissioning rate. Depending on the vehicle, problems can also arise here. Some control units recognize the loose plug and then also display the error message. You would also have to protect the connector from environmental influences and the same applies to the slot on the damper. Short circuits can occur here, so this variant is not necessarily recommended. In general, it is advisable to professionally change the chassis and install such a kit. The decommissioning kit can be recommended in a professional tuning workshop or installed directly when changing chassis. It is not advisable to work on the undercarriage without specialist knowledge and to use a decommissioning rate.
Does the deactivation have any effects?
In tuning forums, of course, one speaks of a sportier driving style, which arises from the decommissioning of the damper regulation and the installation of a new chassis. In addition, the lowering is also an important point. Almost all positive or negative properties of a new chassis come into play. The kit only prevents an error message if the factory chassis components are no longer available. Before buying a set of decommissioning for the chassis, reviews of the articles and the installation should be read. Customer reviews of the appropriate decommissioning sets should also be considered before buying.
We hope that you the info report on the topic / term aside rate (Further designations / keywords: passive sentence, shutdown sentence, shutdown system, deactivation sentence, inactivation sentence) from the field of autotuning. Our goal is that the largest German-language tuning dictionary (Tuning Wikipedia) and to explain tuning terms from A to Z easily and understandably.
