Thats right and its suposed to be automatic. Theres and electric maotor with a switch and the hose and cooling fins on it and its under the hood. Most of the time when you get in the car and turn the key it starts running It can blow the fuse and be blown up itself and as some of this stuff cost alot you can just put on a hose kit from the parts store as their sold separtlly an dthen air it up with any tire inflater as to the height you want. Too high is bad it'll ruin the shocks and the car may drive badly. You may like the way it drives sitting kind of low but low low is bad too.

Why do I hear a buzzing from trunk fuse box until my car idles down / 2002 Cadillac DeVille


That is the compressor for the rear air shocks. If you stop hearing this noise then something is wrong. It levels the car when running.

My 1999 cadillac deville air suspension not working


Check in this order: Is the compressor starting when you turn the car on? If not: is the fuse burnt, broken wires? If not: Is the linkage that connects the frame to the left rear shock broken or seized? (more wires to check here). If the compressor runs and the linkage is functional, spray some windex (or soapy solution) on the rubbers of the rear shocks and around the hoses to see if air is bubbling out. If so, this is where the problem is. Many aftermarket shocks/struts are available (check ebay) online for as little as $ 150.00 each, and $ 175.00 for the compressor.

Rear shock are stuck in high motion causing car to lean forward . is there a sensor or do you have to let air out of shocks. please advise as to location or procedure


Had same problem with my Caddy POS . I took off left rear wheel and disconnected air line. Make sure you take fuse out of system in trunk behind back seat so that the problem doesn't occur again. Just let car ride on suspension. Should not be a problem as long as you don't overload trunk.

99 Deville rear air shocks not working.


This is an expensive repair sometimes and you may want to replace this system with inflatable air bags that fit inside the rear coil springs and then are inflated. I think they cost about $80.00 or $120.00 depending on the car.
