That is your Hyrdopneumatic suspension. You have to make sure that you put the switch to the left of your steering column in the right postion. Otherwise, it could damage the suspension.

Look in your owners manual (if you have one)

There ought to be a big fat knob that has 3 positions. All the way in for normal driving halfway out for extra clearance and all the way out for transportation (like on a cargo container) or when being on a lift. I think it should be immediately to the left of the steering wheel.
btw I did mean to say hydropneumatic suspension. (no, really!, I did! )

Like Mr.Delor said, it is just a knob (not a switch) You just pull it out or push it in. It really needs to be in the correct position otherwise the system will think that it needs to compensate for the drastic change in the supsension and it will struggle to correct itself continuously.

I thought you said that you had springs, 500.

If you have springs then any hydraulics in the suspension are load leveling not full hydraulic.
