If you're blowing a 30 amp fuse then, of course, there's a major overload or short circuit. But, as with all these fixya questions, there's far too little information to go on.

Here's some possibilities:
Compressor locked (rusted) up internally.
Compressor solenoid shorted.
Wiring insulation damaged, or chewed through by nesting varmints.

After sitting in the garage the rear end drops low. After driving the vehicle again the rear end raises back up again.


Sounds like you have air ride and your system has developed a leak. I suggest getting it fixed soon. You will burn up your compressor and that can get expensive.

Battery go dead after sitting for about 6 hours


first unhook the battery cable and wait 6 hours. If the battery is still charged when you hook it back up then start pulling fuses or relays. That car has so much electrical stuff it will take awhile to pin it down. One thing could be the seatcontrol box under the seat. It controls seat heat, power seats, memory seat. Do the power door locks work ok? A bad switch can drain the battery. How about rear leveling system. Leaky air shocks can make the pump run while the car is sitting. If you can't figure it out get a battery disconnect.

Forgot toi turn the air suspension off when


Remove battery, remove windshield washer bottle, remove air compressor and disconnect both air lines from the compressor dryer. Make sure compressor electrical wiring is plugged in, install battery, turn suspension switch to ON, turn ignition switch to the ON position, close all door and the compressor should come on and completely lower the whole truck. Once the truck is completely down, turn the ignition OFF, remove battery and connect both air lines. Install battery ensure electrical wiring is plugged in, turn ignition switch to ON, the compressor should come on and raise the vehicle to the correct ride height.

Air Ride Sensors Corroded?


you buy a car with all these electronics. ride hieght sensors for each wheel. this is affecting that. then when you go to the dealership you want them to replace only the exact one piece that fails. that could take hours of diagnosis time. at damn near 100 per hour. go ahead and give them the car. let them do diag. total price 2000. or you have narrowed it down to brains or sensor. do it yourself 1000. problem solved it should cost 1000-2000 to fix. if u find parts cheaper. money in your pocket
