Question about 1992 Cadillac Seville
Hello My 92 Devilles rear struts wont stayed aired up,the compressor comes on but only sometimes and only for about 3-5 minutes,sometimes when I look at my car it is sitting level " above the top of the tire",sometimes its "sagging" almost to the rims,it also bottoms out if they are sagged down, the only weight I have back there is my 3 kids "young"and some groceries, usually. Could this be a leak,needs new air struts,or both,also can you tell me where the fuse/relay and the air compressor would be???

It sounds to me like you have a hole or cracks in your airbag. The dealership typically diagnoses it as the compressor but that is only to keep you coming back and wasting more money on something that will never truly be fixed. The airbag is the problem now but the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag will kill the compressor. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. This is a PERMANENT fix. I added the link below so you can check it out.
I hope I was of some help

Tips for a great answer:
Jan 05, 2017 | 1992 Cadillac DeVille
Four dampers contained in the 2 front struts (5 and 6) and the 2 rear shock absorbers (1 and 9)
Four positions sensors (2, 4, 7, and 8)
ALC air compressor module (10)
Damper relay (not shown)
ELC relay (not shown)
The ESC system with rear automatic level control (ALC) controls damping forces in the front struts and rear shock absorbers in response to various road and driving conditions. The rear ALC portion of the system maintains a proper vehicle trim height under various vehicle load conditions. For more information on the ALC, refer to Automatic Level Control Description and Operation in Automatic Level Control.
The ESC module receives the following inputs: wheel-to-body position, vehicle speed, and lift/dive. The ESC module evaluates these inputs and controls actuators in each of the dampers independently to provide varied levels of suspension control.
Your best bet is take it to the dealer !
