Question about 1991 Buick Park Avenue
I believe that my compressor is going up on my Park Avenue. Just recently there was a clicking sound coming from around the compressor area under the hood. It was slow at first, clicking maybe once every 10-20 seconds. Now it clicks really fast and is easily heard going down the road. Sometimes it clicks and sometimes it doesn't. My battery died twice recently and I believe that it is because the compressor is trying to run almost constantly. The compressor does kick on and level the car rarely. I am wondering how to unhook the compressor so I can stop this problem.
I had my battery and alternator both tested and both tested good.
You can unplug it right at the pump...the only problem is that the rear end is going ride low and you will notice a steering power, and some bottoming out in the rear. The best thing to do is see if that shocks themself might be leaking and replace them if they are since eventually this will damage the pump. Sometimes it will just blow the fuse, which brings me to my next point...you could just pull the fuse in the fuse box to shut it off.

You have what is called a height/load leveler switch located on rear axle of vehicle .Check to see if the arm (which moves and kicks on compressor when ride height is low) Is connected and moving freely..You then might want to make sure that the air supply lines atatched to air shocks or air bags are not leaking.. If all checks out fine and you decide to disable compressor you can do this by unplugging harness that connects to compressor...And then you can manually adjust your ride height by adding air to the valve on compressor (it resembles a tire valve stem) this will adjust your your ride height and you can let air out at same location if lower height is desired.. This is a little inconveinient but will bypass automatic system as you requested.
