In general, all doors, the trunklid or cargo door, or any sliders must be closed before the Air suspension pump will run.

On some Makes, like Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury, there is a shutoff switch usually in the trunk. If you have had an oil change or any service requiring the car being lifted off the ground, a Mechanic may have shut off the system. They then forgot to turn it back on.

Locating a leak in ride control for 03 yucon

Try spraying soapy water on the connections, then wait to see if the liquid bubbles up. Probably all you need. If it is a really slow leak can get a leak detector fluid for natural gas lines, but it costs about $8 at Home Depot. It stays on the connection and foams up if there is any leak at all.

Air ride air comp not comming on new air pump

If everything else is working, the compressor and the air bags are good, and the lines are ok, then you might have a bad leveling switch. That what actually controls the compressor.

Level Ride light comes on randomly what is it for? Should I worry

It shows that the rear air ride air pump is on. If you change the load weight in the car it pumps up to help the ride.Its controled by a computer so some times it takes little while to figure the needed pressure for the car. If you dont change the load and it comes on often it probably has a small leak.
I hope this helps you.

Air pump stays on when key is off

The air pump is not in the trunk, and it is not for the air ride. It is used to reduce tailpipe emissions. it is actived by a vacuum valve/solenoid.It could be a bad vacuum valve or check valve. Save yourself a few bucks and go to an auto parts store and get a haynes repair manual to locate these parts, and replace them yourself.
