Just fixed mine today. It was diag wrong by 2 small shops I was told the pump was bad but it was not I know its risky but I put a power supply to it and it cut right on so I had it put on computer that said my driver side sensor was bad that would have been over 300 just to buy the part. Hopefully u ll luck up like I did, check ur wires that go to the sensors you got 3 of em 2 in front 1 n back I found if one of em is bad or disconnected the whole systems jacked. They rust off right where the wire goes into the harnest you may not have much to work with but a little solder should do the trick. O yea make sure u cut the power off in back b 4 you do any of that. Hope helps ya out. KD

Rear air suspension will deflate but won't inflate. All fuses are good and the compressor relay has been replaced. Jumping out wires at the compressor relay will inflate and maintain height with the rear...


If it is easy to remove the sensor and the plugs are the same. I would try that. That will tell you if the sensor is bad(the rear will inflate). Or if it is the module. (It won't inflate).

Passenger side on 2003 ford expedition keep dropping no air leaks


On that system you have 3 ride height sensors. 2 front 1 rear. Disconnect the linkage arm and try to move sensor arm. Should move with little resistance but not loose. If bound up replace,also check 2 remaining sensors. Behind the passenger headlight is your compressor and relay. You can jump the 2 fat wires together at the relay to activate the compressor. The relay has 4 wires 2 fat 2 skinny. They sell a conversion kit to elinmate air ride and have coil struts and shocks. I normally recommend the conversion so the problem doesn't happen again. Nice system till it goes wrong

My ELC compressor do not come on buick


When you turn the key on, after a couple of seconds the system should cycle the compressor on for a couple seconds at least. If not, you'll need to troubleshoot if it is an electrical problem (fuse, relay, height switch/sensor, wiring in between components/bad connections) or a mechanical problem (compressor, hoses, bladder on air shocks leaking air).

There is a fuse & a relay for the Electronic Level Control/ELC also called Automatic Level Control/ALC under the back seat in the power distribution block/fuse. Switch out a relay with a similar one and check the fuse for a burnt center section.

There is a ride height sensor attached to one of the rear control arms. With the vehicle safely raised and supported, disconnect the 'link' from the sensor to the suspension arm. With the key ON and engine NOT running, push the arm on the ride height to the compressed/riding low setting. After about 15-30 seconds (it is slow to respond or it would kick on and off over every bump) the compressor should turn on and begin filling the air bladders on the rear shocks.

If the compressor still fails to come on, you'll need to unhook the harness connector at the compressor. Again, with the key ON, engine OFF, height sensor compressed connect a voltmeter to the Dark Green wire on the chassis side of the harness connector (there are four wires to the compressor. 2 wires are for the electric motor to raise the car, and 2 wires are for the Vent solenoid the releases air pressure lowers the car) and ground to see if the compressor is being told to turn on by the height sensor. If it is being commanded on and supplied electricity, and still doesn't make noise or pressure, then replace it off a similar year GM vehicle that has rear air suspension (Cadillacs, Buicks, Oldsmobile Auroras). As long as the compressors are the same, you can just remount it in your car's mounting bracket assembly and save some $$.

If the compressor comes on but the car won't rise, check the air lines to each shock from the compressor, the bladders on the shocks themselves, the filter on the compressor intake or even the vent solenoid assembly on the compressor unit has been known to leak/corrode/stick.

Good luck.

REAR AIR SHOCKS


First, you may have leaks in your bags, causing your suspension to drop. The other possibility is that your rear suspension level sensor is faulty, causing the suspension to readjust itself incorrectly.

2003 NAVIGATOR AIR RIDE STOPPED WORKING,PUMP CHECKED OK.


The navi has leveling sensors on both axles that are switches and are adjustable. Most likely these are out of calibration. DO NOT attempt to move or adjust these with the vehicle on jack stands. Vehicle could shift and fall resulting in serious injury.

Level ride shocks not working.


have a self test run buy the dealer on the self leveling system, most common causes are the ride height sensor, the air pump is defective or the pump relay is defective.
