The instrument cluster is the gateway for communication and it may have an internal fault. What scanning method did you employ?

Thank You Dr. Hargerty For getting back at me. It was an OBD scanner and general checking was performed by connecting from inside the bunnet. I am new to the computer checkings but I was told the faults were wiped out. But the electrical misbehaving is still going on. Now the safe level suspension light is on and the vehicle is literally sitting on the back wheels with hissing noise from behind the tires.

An air spring may have a hole in it, pinpoint the hissing and let me know what you find.
