    What is your high side reading? And does your lowside go way high when the compr cycles? You may have a blockage somewhere?

What is the high side?,,,ow side about right ,high side should be no more than 225-250 at the max ,if it is higher than this make sure the fan or fans are working if so ,replace the condenser.if high side is normal replace low side cut out switch

My auto load leveling sensor has gone bad on my 2003 Tahoe Lt. The air pump has been recently replaced, so is there a way to by-pass the circuit boards and even the air pump and just take the air intake...

No, but you can put the 50-80$ sensor in too correct the system considering you just spent 500-600$ to have the pump replaced. Or you can just put non-air rear shocks on the vehicle although the suspension system will generate a warning message on the dash.

I need a picture of the rear air shock compresser shown with the air lines hooked up to it. i put new shocks on ,but they still do not work. an air line was off. but i am not sure where it geta connected.

i think its in the back under a plastic side compartment -its no big deal its just a little 12v air pump for the shocks in back if you wanted to u coul by pass it and get some plastic fittings from pep boys and put air in manualy like u would a tire - i have a 98 transport it has been a real pain with tailghts burning out front turn signals burning out and one day the wife brought it in all jacked up and the pump wouldnt shut off it was a cheap plastic arm under the van broke off the axle nothing but a simple on off swtch i duck taped to the axle -fixed 1 month later the motor blew up started to get hot head gasket or somthing - now im trying to get a 2003 just regular montana on the road everything works runs good but cant get the odometer to stay on im thinking about just lookin around for some "hot" inspection stickers when this goes ill never own another gm van -i think ill go japanese or somthin these things are just plain cheap junk
