Loosen the fittings on both lines of the compressor a little bit. One should pull air in and the other exhausts. Clutch needs to be engaged and the regulator open. Be careful, they pump hi pressure.

SOURCE: 1997 Lincoln Continental Suspension Conversion Problem

It could be a wheel speed sensor that went out or something... When working with the wiring, something could have just gotten crossed or tapped to get these codes as well. The compressor shouldnt be running anymore if everything was tied off properly. Take it in somewhere and have the codes cleared and that should fix the problem hopefully. I know AutoZone has a reader, but I do not know if they have they ability to clear the codes.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: rear air ride system is not working , seems there

There is a heigth sensor for the level control and the level control has a motor to operate it. One of the two may be bad. I would check the relay first to see if power is going to the motor.

Air ride suspension rear dont work how can i check whats wrong?


The 97 Caddie Seville STS has an air compressor located under the car just in front of the passenger side muffler, above the crossmember. It is a pretty weak compressor, and is only designed to slowly fill up the shocks. Probable issues are a blown compressor, or leaky shocks. Before replacing either make sure you have power going to the compressor, and air going to the shocks. No power to the compressor could be caused by a bad wire, relay, connector or fuse all of which are cheaper to fix. If you have power, check the little air lines leading to the shocks from the compressor to see if you have a leak. Airlines are much cheaper than shocks.

Where is the compressor for the rear air shocks located on a 97 cadillac deville?


It is located behind the Passenger side rear tire. If jacked up and you climb under from rear bumper look to your left in between gas tank and tail exhaust. Good sized box with wire harness and clip on it.
Also if your air ride is not working in some cases the Air shock(s) may be defective the pump will not kick on

What does service ride control mean on 1995 cadillac deville?


The Cadillac's have an automatic leveling system using a small compressor and air adjustable "shocks" to provide that BEAUTIFUL ride quality that they are known for. The computer has detected a fault in the system and is letting you know. It could be a faulty air line, bad shock, or a blown fuse. I hope this will give you a starting point if you are considering a repair.

Rear air ride is flat on 95 deville....what do i


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.

Lift sensor for rear of 1988 Deville


To begin with, check the "ride level" fuse and make sure that the ride level compressor does work, and you should be able to hear that the ride level compressor is working when the ride level system is leveling the vehicle.

The ride level system uses an air compressor and either an air type of shocks or a type of air billow to raise and lower the vehicle, there is an adjustment to set the ride height and it is located under the vehicle and there is a control lever or rod that should be connected between the rear axle and a switch that is mounted on the body of the vehicle, and there will be an adjustment slot in the control lever between the switch and the body, and that is how you would adjust the ride level height, but be sure that the vehicle can not drop any further down if someone is under the vehicle trying to adjust the ride height.

However, you might find that the control lever to the ride level has fallen off from the switch on the body or it has come loose from the rear axle, and it is just hanging there not operating the switch on the body that controls the the ride level compressor, or there might be a blown out air shock or billow, or you might find that an air line from the compressor is leaking and the ride level compressor will just run continuously until it blows out the fuse, and if that is the case you might also find out that the air compressor has burned out from running continuously.

I hope that this information will help you to solve your ride level problem.

you may want to buy regular heavy duty shocks and put on the car to raise the back up high enough to do what you are trying to do.
