How to disable Airmatic in STAR

I've got my BC Racing coilovers installed, but I can't find a how-to that explains the process of using STAR to disable the Airmatic system so the dash warning goes away. Everyone just says "use STAR to disable it", but I poked around in STAR for 30 minutes and couldn't figure it out.

'Little help?

I think you need to put the comic books down and seek advice from MB mechanics that have experience with DAS Xentry!!

I've never done it myself but I would start looking at the codings in the central gateway (CGW). That's where a lot of codings for options like that are at.

I have the "module" from Strutmasters, too, and it made the error go away. But I also read that if you pull the fuse for the Airmatic system, you stop getting the message.

What is this "module" you guys speak of? Is it a piece of hardware that plugs into the car somewhere, or a software "module"?

I haven't had time to hook up STAR and check out the CGW section, but I plan on doing it tonight. Will keep this thread updated if I manage to figure it out.

Some coilover makers provide a small plastic box that plugs into the car somewhere and tricks the computer into thinking the Airmatic is working normally. I didn't do the installation on mine, so I have no idea where it is.
