There is a switch in the trunk, left side as you're looking in, I believe. First check to make sure that the switch is in the "On" position.

If it is, I would take a multimeter and read the power coming into, and out of, the switch. That will make sure that the switch is still good.

Now, if it's on, and the compressor runs, but the car doesn't lift, you could have a bad air line, or the shock could be blown. The air lines run under the car, and tend to look like fuel lines.

Check the fuse in the power distribution box under the hood. if fuse is blown replace with fuse of same amperage. if after replacing fuse, the fuse blows again then you probably have a faulty air spring compressor.

If you have Air shocks in the back they are worn out

Your going to get that low ride when people sit in the

the level control to raise the rear

You need to air your tires to the max on tire sidewall

When i start my truck the rear shock makes a noise like air is leaking for ten seconds


I believe u would have the auto ride adjust. It's adjusting the level of the truck. Start it up let it do it's thing, jump out and make sure the truck is level if it's lower in the rear I would take it in, it might need servicing but if the ride is good, and truck is level it fine. U might also here the noise after you hook up a trailer or put real heavy thing in rear as it's adjusting pressure to best level the ride. Hope this helped

The back of the car is to high in the air making tha front ride low to the ground. how can i get the car back to its level position?


The auto leveling switch for the back may be not adjusted correctly or damaged.

There are two types, mechanical for older Cadillacs from say the 1970s which bleed the air off, or electrical which sends a signal to a bleed valve to allow air to come out of the system and allow the rear to not be so high (and to not run the electrical compressor).

Lift sensor for rear of 1988 Deville


To begin with, check the "ride level" fuse and make sure that the ride level compressor does work, and you should be able to hear that the ride level compressor is working when the ride level system is leveling the vehicle.

The ride level system uses an air compressor and either an air type of shocks or a type of air billow to raise and lower the vehicle, there is an adjustment to set the ride height and it is located under the vehicle and there is a control lever or rod that should be connected between the rear axle and a switch that is mounted on the body of the vehicle, and there will be an adjustment slot in the control lever between the switch and the body, and that is how you would adjust the ride level height, but be sure that the vehicle can not drop any further down if someone is under the vehicle trying to adjust the ride height.

However, you might find that the control lever to the ride level has fallen off from the switch on the body or it has come loose from the rear axle, and it is just hanging there not operating the switch on the body that controls the the ride level compressor, or there might be a blown out air shock or billow, or you might find that an air line from the compressor is leaking and the ride level compressor will just run continuously until it blows out the fuse, and if that is the case you might also find out that the air compressor has burned out from running continuously.

I hope that this information will help you to solve your ride level problem.

Mercedes c class with tiptonic gearbox. It seems to have got stuck in a low gear when I slowed down for a roundabout. When I accelerated to 50/60 mph, the rev counter was way too high and no auto gear...


It seems oil level is low in your gearbox, and it most likely leaking from adapter bushing ( where cable is connected to gearbox).
You need to replace seals or complete bushing and correct oil level.
Better if you visit your mechanic.

Air Ride Sensors Corroded?


you buy a car with all these electronics. ride hieght sensors for each wheel. this is affecting that. then when you go to the dealership you want them to replace only the exact one piece that fails. that could take hours of diagnosis time. at damn near 100 per hour. go ahead and give them the car. let them do diag. total price 2000. or you have narrowed it down to brains or sensor. do it yourself 1000. problem solved it should cost 1000-2000 to fix. if u find parts cheaper. money in your pocket
