Angry 2014 SQ4 Suspension dead

After replacing the dead battery, the suspension went dead. The sport suspension mode button doesn't light up or toggle. The vehicle rides horribly.

Any thoughts?

It is default mode and full stiff ride...Try unhooking the battery for a bit again and see if it will clear..If not then it will need to be scanned with the proper software...Generic OBD2 reader will not work in this case...Jason

If you want to try something make sure the battery is charged to full, complete 3 drive cycles of 5 mins or more, check fuses and wire connections but diagnosing a skyhook suspension with out the proper tools can be tough. Being that it happened only after a dead battery though tells us it *may* just be one of these more simple things.

My vehicle has been in the shop since Feb 22nd. They believe the suspension module failed. They got a new one but can't seem to get it intialized. The shop says they've been working with Maserati and possibly the new module is bad.

I'm at a loss.
