Question about Cars & Trucks
The dealer can run an active test on the air ride system with a special GM scanner, I suggest you have that test run and then fix whatever they suggest yourself.

SOURCE: rear air ride
What you have is a leak in your line(s) or spring(s). Usually the air spring.
Take it to a mechanic and have the system tested. You may also have to replace the compressor due to overheating.
If it is a air spring and you are somewhat of a mechanic yourself then replacing the air spring is a snap. Held in place by large clip on top of spring. Be careful of the line(s) and valve o-ring when air spring is loose. Valve turns out in z pattern.
If you are fed up, there also is a spring replacement set that you can find online.

This is an expensive repair sometimes and you may want to replace this system with inflatable air bags that fit inside the rear coil springs and then are inflated. I think they cost about $80.00 or $120.00 depending on the car.

hello there. my suggestions would be the airline tubes to the shocks or the leveling valve or the air compressor its self. my compressor went out so now i have to go to napa and get the after market non air ride shocks. its cheaper that way cuz not only do i have to get new shocks any way for the air ride but d have to get the compressor is shot as well. i would check those items first if not working still then i would take to a dealer or just go and get the after market shocks. dave

the first thing is the fuses. i've seen many of these that the rear air shocks are bad but customer doesnt know and the pump runs until it burns out,after checking the fuses start the car and listen under the hood for the pump to turn on, if pump turns on then check shocks for leaks, also you would have to make sure the pump is producing air as it runs and the last thing is the level sensor located under the rear of car.
