1. make sure the switch is on (under the passenger side dash board). 2. check to make sure the relay is good (black little box under the right front bumper. 3. there are two (that I know of) switches/sensors. 1 is behind the left front tire. The other is up behind the spare tire. Taking the spare tire off gives you tons of room to work with. The sensors look like mini shock absorbers with black rubber and can be compressed and pulled easily by hand. Moving those will simulate the suspension going up and down and should trigger the compressor. 4. if the compressor doesn't come on (and all the above is fine) it sounds like your compressor is bad and should be replaced. I got one from Arnott Industries in Florida and they have been very nice to work with so far.

I have serviced these in the past and it will probably be a combination of things. I just a few weeks ago fixed a 1999 with the same problems. Generally from past repairs, the electric pump has been working overtime to compensate for leaking rear air shocks. The best solution is to replace them both, not a cheap repair, the pump around 275.00 and each shock arount 275.00.
Just with every thing over time things fail, the rear shocks develop leaks over time/weather cracks, they are easy to check, soapy water will identify this as the problem. If you can get under it enough to spray around the bottom of the shocks when they are inflated. These systems are computer controlled and if you have the proper scanner you can check the system out for eletrical problems easily. My past experiences with these suspensions as almost always the shocks and pump.

I had the same problem, I went to my mechanic and they said that the system has shut itself off due to a problem the computer has seen, in my case it was a selinoid in the pump which released air had failed and had to be replaced, unfortonatly you can not buy the selinoid seperately and would have to replace the entire pump, I was lucky though because he has a spare pump that he pulled off another car which was blown but the selinoid was still good. It took them about 4 hours to find the problem but that was my experiance. DO NOT TAKE IT TO THE DEALER they will charge you for 4 new air bags and a new pump they quoted me almost 5000 Dollers and i got mine fixed for $500
