So, I noticed on a YouTube video this morning that the air suspension system has a jack mode. Can anyone tell me exactly what this does (keep it clean folks...I know how you think!).

The only reference I found on it was on a tutorial on the Tesla site that says it should be left to a technician. Any thoughts?

Oh, it doesn't work like the Citroën hydropneumatic suspension?
Where you can use the system to raise the car, then put a stand under the car, and lower it. On the side of the stand the wheels raise themselves off the ground, due to the coupling to the wheels on the other side by a torsion anti-roll-bar. Making it possible to change tires without jacking up te car.
(I hope my explanation is clear.)
