SOURCE: falty air compressor

It could be in one of two places. They did mount an air pump under the alternator, (looks like the air pump for pollution control or it could be mounted near the rear axle if it is an electric one. I am not sure which one you would have so jack up the rear (safety first, use wheel chocks) and trace the air lines off the shock back to the source. I hope this helps you and good luck.

Mine did exactly same thing. I simply disconnected it. It does not affect the ride at all.

SOURCE: How do I remove the rear door panel on my Buick Park avenue

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

We just purchased a 2003 park Avenue buick and noticed a constant buzzing sound. What is it? Thanks. S.s.


You could be hearing the air compressor for the air shocks running. This would indicate an air hose cracked or fallen off the shock.

My 1993 buick park ave rides fine with 2 people but with 4 the rear bottoms out regularly. The compressor pump runs pretty much every time I shut the engine off. Is it struts, pump or what?


I had just the same problems with my 93- Park Avenue. The mecanic man found leaks on the supply
hoses from the compressor and repleced the hoses. Easy job. I have resently replaced my struts and that helpt even more.

Air ride compressor runs when i shut off engine car is level no change in height when running just runs all the time had to unplug it to get it to quit but ride is still ok does this mean that the...


There is a switch under the rear of the car that actuates the compressor when the ride height falls below a preset level. The switch could be out of adjustment from being hit with road debris, causing the compressor to run al this time. Or there could be an air leak causing the air shocks to be constantly trying to raise the ride height. If there is an air leak, the back of the car would be much lower than the front, but still maintain ride quality.

Air Ride on 1994 Buick Park Avenue


You have what is called a height/load leveler switch located on rear axle of vehicle .Check to see if the arm (which moves and kicks on compressor when ride height is low) Is connected and moving freely..You then might want to make sure that the air supply lines atatched to air shocks or air bags are not leaking.. If all checks out fine and you decide to disable compressor you can do this by unplugging harness that connects to compressor...And then you can manually adjust your ride height by adding air to the valve on compressor (it resembles a tire valve stem) this will adjust your your ride height and you can let air out at same location if lower height is desired.. This is a little inconveinient but will bypass automatic system as you requested.

1990 Buick Park Avenue - air ride pump


Does the pump run a lot? My pump on my '91 ran all the time so I checked my rear struts and they were bad. Had them changed and the pump doesnt run so much now.
