SOURCE: air ride
there are air pump lines connected to the shaft of the rear wheels. If you look under the wheel hub you'll see the air line attatched to the "air shock" cylinder. My air ride is also broken and I just pulled the line off carefully because the car will then fall quickly. I just leave it pulled off and let the normal shocks do their work. You might hear the pump run a little more often but its better than having rock hard rear shocks.

It sounds to me like you have a hole or cracks in your airbag. The dealership typically diagnoses it as the compressor but that is only to keep you coming back and wasting more money on something that will never truly be fixed. The airbag is the problem now but the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag will kill the compressor. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. This is a PERMANENT fix. I added the link below so you can check it out.
I hope I was of some help

There is a heigth sensor for the level control and the level control has a motor to operate it. One of the two may be bad. I would check the relay first to see if power is going to the motor.
