I'll bet it's NOT the fuse...these are notorious for bad shocks...look to spend upwards $800+ to fix (check with AutoZone/NAPA parts counterperson for aftermarket fixes from Monroe. The fuse is in the engine bay under a black plastic box atop one of the fenderwells...labels for the fuses are on the underneath of the lid of the box.
Good Luck

My autoride system on the GMC will not work automatically, the air compressor is OK. I bypass it directly from the battery and it works. Is there a relay or a fuse i should be looking for?

Hi, there is actually an elaborate control module for the system. Yes, there is a relay and also one or more sensors involved. First make sure someone has not switched off the controller. It is usually in the trunk but depends on the model.

What does the 30 amp fuse on the inside of the engine compartment fuse box that says air go to on a 2002 chevrolet suburban LT 4x4 V8 5.3L with autoride?

It's either generically for the a/c or for the a/c high speed relay. When you have it all the way up I think the electric load is higher. Does your a/c work?

My autoride suspension is not working

A ton of things could be wrong with your autoride system. If you have more than about 70k miles and haven't replaced the rear shocks ($500+ EACH!!! at the dealer), then they are probably leaking out. If they leak out, then the air compressor will always run. Eventually the air compressor/ride level sensor module (located on the driver side rear wheel on the inboard side of the frame, $300+ at the dealer) burns out because it's not designed to run at 100% duty cycles. After the air compressor burns out, the Electronic Stability Control module (in an XL, located inside the passenger side rear wheelwell trim, next to the third row seat, $300+ at the dealer) will probably short out. If your autoride isn't working and you don't get a "Service Stability" message, your ESC module is probably going bad.

It is possible to convert to regular shocks, but to keep the Stability Control (still has to control your brakes and front variable dampening shocks during "evasive" maneuvers), you have to insert some 1/4 watt resistors in to the ride height sensor connectors (can't remember what values, but I'm sure you can Google that) so that the Stability system doesn't throw a code. Not that it matters, but the message can get annoying if it's always there to nag...

My dealer quoted over $2500 to replace the entire system. I figure I can find the control modules from my local junkyard for $300, and the shocks from ebay for $350 for the pair. Be sure to match all of the GM part numbers, and keep an eye out for an upgraded Air Compressor module - GM released an update that is heavier duty and more water-resistant than the first design. I don't remember the part number, but my dealer included the upgrade with my quote.

Oh, and the only "easy" way to test the modules is with a Tech 2 tool. Otherwise it's lots of testing with a 12-volt source and a couple of multimeters and oscilliscopes...

Good luck!
