Mine has the same problem and there's a little air hose in the back that clips onto the shock thing. I'm a girl so I'm not sure the exact terms lol but the clip on mine broke off so the motor is running most of the time and it's annoying. I can clip the thing back on but it comes right back off. So go by the tire and look for a little hose thing. Hope that helps despite my less than perfect knowledge of automobiles lol

Our air suspension on our 2007 Mercedes r350 have stopped lifting


Your air pump or air shocks may have quit working. Mine would run but the shocks had an air leak. I had to get new air shocks and yes the air pump was shot so I replaced the air shocks and installed an air line below the license plate. I pump them up with my air compressor about every three months. The pump was too expensive for me.

What's the standard shocks for it


Usually when a car has air shocks that car is built with an air compressor to keep those shocks blown up. My Buick had air shocks and a compressor but the shocks wore out and was losing all the air making the compressor wear out. Instead of replacing everything at a great expense I had new air shocks put on throwing the compressor away. and run an air line just under my license plate, Just pump them up like pumping a tire . I check them about every three months and saved a lot of money.

Clicking noise on drivers side of the dash after the car has run and key turned off.


That car has an air compressor which pumps up the air shocks. the shocks may be shot. The hoses to the shocks may have a leak or the compressor its self may be the problem. My car all three were bad so I had air shocks installed that you pump up manually with a compressor or you can use an air pump at a gas station. Just a little thing below the license plate to put in the air. Only half the price and I pump them up every three months.

My air shocks are down and i don;t know what fuse to look for


the fuse is it the right front relay/fuse box, 60 amps I think. Most likely the shocks leak, then the pump runs too much to keep them up, then the pump burns up and blows the fuse. There are companies that make a shock for the rear to delete the air ride, the air ride can cost a lot to get running again. shocks and compressor.

Load levelers must be leaking, the air pump is running


No, you may want to replace the shocks though. You can leave the leveler disconnected and replace your shocks with regular shocks.

The air suspension takes a long time to air up if you start the car and let it run it will pump up when your driving it sometimes 15-20 min.


you have a leak either in one of the lines to the air bags/shocks or a bad shock or air leak at the air pump lines

Auto ride on 2000 Yukon XL needs replacing.


Hey,

The air pump in located in the very back-left (driver's) side, underneath.
You know the shocks can "look" quit bad and still be okay.
Everything about this system is expensive (to me).
There is also a height sensor that can go bad and keep the air-pump from running.

I recommand an expert on this system.

Your GM Dealer is your best bet for parts.
Just my opinion.

Good Luck

Let us know,
Dave
