Usually when they stop working it is because they have burned out from running too much due to a leak. Sometimes the leak is on the pump itself at the older T line fitting on the side. If it is the new one with the updated line and it is still running, chances are there is a leak somewhere and that is why it continues to run. It could also be the relay. Usually when I replace the pump, I replace the relay as well. Try a new relay, if it continues after that, you will need to have it properly diagnosed by someone familiar with the airmatic system.

TYPICALLY this could be because the air bags are leaking and caused your compressor to overwork itself to death. The airbags are not designed to withstand temperatures below 40 degrees and above 94 degrees. Can you believe that!?!? Dry rot starts forming on the inside fold of the bag making it very difficult to detect with the soapy water test. Anyways.. i went through all these problems and several hundred dollars before I finally decided to convert to a passive coil spring system. I got it from Strutmasters.com with a lifetime warranty. http://www.strutmasters.com/mercedes-s-500-suspension-s/112.htm I have been riding on them for about 8 months now and am very pleased so far! I actually now PREFER the coil spring ride to the air ride and was surprised at just how comfortable the ride was. Hopefully you won't have to go through as much money and heartache as I did before I went for a more permanent solution. By the way, my shop only charged me an hour per wheel to install the kit so it was pretty cheap on labor too!!!!

SOURCE: 2001 Mercedes S500. Air conditioner won't blow cold even though

I think that this might help you. The a/c compressor is a continuos running type there is no clutch. It has a wobble plate internally wich changes the piston stroke. Screw the genises machine-it is probably only reading a partial on the climate control module. see if you can find the self diagnoses diagram either from the factory or if you have all data. you can pull the codes right from the unit itself and they will be accurate. If you can,t pull codes see if you can get an actual value of the sensors in the a/c unit. You should be able to pull that up as well if not try the genisis. Look very closely at you evaporater sensers(left and right) you will probably see a -40 degrees-that is the sensor default input reading when the sensor goes open. That sensor is used to moniter the wobble plate position of the compressor.

check the relay for the airmatic compressor it is on the passenger side in the engine compartment right next to the hood hinge. pull the cover off and its the 3rd relay back from the front. the relay might be sticking closed but have it checked before it causes the compressor to burn itself out

Air ride suspention won'twork


If the car is riding lower than usual, making abnormal sounds, and its compressor won't start, it indicates the replacement of air suspension compressor.Accordingly, if the compressor has failed, there is usually an air leak somewhere in the air ride suspension that needs to be found and fixed before a new compressor is installed.

The air compressor is what provides the air suspension system with compressed air required for it to function. If you suspect that there is a problem, you should have proper vehicle suspension inspection by a professional technicians such as Eurobahn BMW MINI Mercedes-Benz Audi. They can determine if the vehicle needs an air suspension compressor replacement or repair.

I have a air ride suspension on my ford expedition 2001 and wonder if there's any way to manually air up the shocks to check for leaks .my ride along compressor is shot.


They eventually wear out. But if you try to replace parts, it will not fix the ongoing problem. You really need to change it to coil suspension. The problem with air ride is the bags will eventually go bad and it cost more to replace them than air bags in the steering wheel. I was lucky. My Expedition had already been changed over

Reset air shock


If you have seen lower back several times but the car raised by itself before, then you have to replace air spring. I replaced those with Arnott air spring.
If you had this problem for the first time, your air spring will be fine. If you have 4 corners air spring and the front one blows air in and out, your pump is okay.
Then I will first replace air suspension relay which costs $30. And you will have to check air hose connection. Finally you could try to replace air pump.

I have a 2001 S500. front suspension problem


Hi. If the pressure can build up but doesn't hold when the car is off and doesn't leak air, check your air relive valve for debris or electrical problem. Try switch it with other side. If the problem go with switched valve - replace if not you may have an electrical problem with it.

Back end of my 2001 Ford Expedition FWD, Eddie Bauer, was dragging. Had diagnostic test run and found out it needed a new air ride compressor. Had compressor installed, but compressor continues to run...


The compressor should only run until the rear suspension reaches the desired height. If it continues to run after the suspension has raised to ride height then you may have a leaking air bag/solenoid or line. If you dont have any leaks it is possible the EVO(air suspension module} or relay is at fault.

I have the car to low error message on the display the bags are bottomed out and wont raise up. its on a e 500 2003


The suspension has a leak somewhere and/or the airmatic compressor has stopped working properly. You need either the Mercedes star diagnosis system (SDS) in order to access the suspension control module to tell it to raise the vehilce or you can try to trick it by jacking up the car so it thinks it's sitting at the correct ride height. But as long as the display reads a warning it won''t allow the airmatic compressor to run.
