The iLIFT Suspension Lift System uses an intelligent electronic control unit (ECU) to constantly monitor system parameters including pressures, vehicle speed, and optionally, proximity sensors for automatic lifting. The ECU is housed in an environmentally sealed enclosure allowing the ECU to be mounted in or outside the cabin.

A major feature of the iLIFT ECU is wireless configuration. Using a phone, tablet, or laptop with WiFi, you can connect to the iLIFT ECU and make configuration changes. When new features are released, the ECU can be updated via Wi-Fi using a laptop (click here for more details).

ECU INSTRUCTIONS CONTENTS

Connect to Wi-Fi

  • Turn the vehicle’s ignition power on (the engine does not need to be running).
  • Go to your device’s wireless settings, and connect to “iLIFT”.
  • The default WiFi password is “ABCDEFGH” (the WiFi password and app password can be changed once logged-in).
  • You do not need to wait for the device to connect to the iLIFT ECU.
  • Depending on your device, you may receive a message that says that internet is not available through this connection (you will not be able to connect to the internet while connected to the iLIFT ECU).
  • Open a browser  on your device (Microsoft Edge recommended) and browse to http://1.2.3.4.
  • If you have problems connecting, and you are using a cellular device, you may need to turn off cellular data (as shown on iPhone for example) while connected to the iLIFT ECU. If you continue to have difficulties connecting with your mobile device, please use a laptop.


  • When prompted, enter the default password “admin”.
  • You will then log-in and be taken to the homepage where you can select the various configuration options of the app.


Installed axles:

  • Select if you have a front only or optional front & rear system.

Activation Type:

  • If you have the optional automated sensors, select Automatic & Manual. Otherwise, leave the setting as Manual.

Front & Rear Axle Weight:

  • Select the approximate weight of your vehicle’s front & rear axles.

Speed Source:

  • Select None, Pulsed, OBD, or CAN (CAN is only available for application-specific systems).


Switch Type:

  • Select the switch type you will use (CAN is for application-specific configurations only).

Rear Lift Activation:

  • Choose if you want the optional rear lift to be activated at the same time the front lifts, or if you want the rear to lift only if you click the lift switch twice.

Cruise Control Input:

  • To use the cruise control switch to activate iLIFT, the ECU must know if cruise control is activated. For Application-specific installations using CAN, leave the configuration set to CAN.


Buzzer Up Reminder:

  • The buzzer will prompt at the interval to remind you that the system is up.

Buzzer Tone:

  • Select from the various tones.

Tank Recharge Pressure:

  • Each time the system lifts, pressure will decrease in the tank. Select the pressure loss you wish for the tank to recharge.

Additional Raise Pressure:

  • Leave this setting at 1 (None) unless clicks are heard during lifting. This setting will allow more pressure to raise the vehicle but will consume more air volume. If you continue to hear air clicks, the air tubes may be kinked or otherwise restricted. Inspect to remove the restriction.

Compressor Start Delay:

  • The ECU will wait this long before turning on the compressor.

Sensor All Clear:

  • Once the optional automated sensors see no obstacle, these many seconds must pass before the ECU will lower the vehicle.


  • Enter the password required to modify the web app. The default password is “admin”.

IMPORTANT!

  • Do not lose this password. The ECU must be returned to be reset if it is forgotten.


  • IP Address:
    It is recommended to not modify this setting.
  • SSID:
    It is recommended to not modify this setting unless you own multiple iLIFT systems.
  • WiFi Password:
    Modify the password.
    IMPORTANT! Do not use the invalid characters noted, or use a password less than 8 characters or more than 14 characters.
  • Encryption:
    It is recommended to not modify this setting.
