SOURCE: Air Suspension plomlem
1. make sure the switch is on (under the passenger side dash board). 2. check to make sure the relay is good (black little box under the right front bumper. 3. there are two (that I know of) switches/sensors. 1 is behind the left front tire. The other is up behind the spare tire. Taking the spare tire off gives you tons of room to work with. The sensors look like mini shock absorbers with black rubber and can be compressed and pulled easily by hand. Moving those will simulate the suspension going up and down and should trigger the compressor. 4. if the compressor doesn't come on (and all the above is fine) it sounds like your compressor is bad and should be replaced. I got one from Arnott Industries in Florida and they have been very nice to work with so far.

Yes and no. You have to have it tested because you have a leak. Finding the leak is not easy unless you can easily get under your vehicle safely. System has to be fed with air to find it and unless you are under the vehicle it is very hard to hear it.
Replacement is not that hard but, it can be costly if you have to replace the compressor. Expect it to be around $400-500.

It could be a wheel speed sensor that went out or something... When working with the wiring, something could have just gotten crossed or tapped to get these codes as well. The compressor shouldnt be running anymore if everything was tied off properly. Take it in somewhere and have the codes cleared and that should fix the problem hopefully. I know AutoZone has a reader, but I do not know if they have they ability to clear the codes.
I hope this helps.

I just experience problem with a leak in one of the bags in the back n because i didn’t have the money then to take care of the problem my air compressor burned. I just recently changed the bag and I found it at this website for $160 and the compressor is $210 + shipping. They r a manufactor so what they do they sell u refurnish parts that r as good as new and cheap. U purchase the item and sent them the broken item back n they give u a credit of $50. I made both purchase an air bag n the compressor n so far everything is working fine. The air bag is super easy to change but the air compressor its a little more complicated. The website is http://www.suncoreindustries.com/ and they even sent u the instructions on how to do it urself. Hope this was helpful!
