Hi, I'm Chad. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question and I will be posting your reply ASAP.

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 month ago.

the system should kick in , just by starting the vehicle and opening the driver door .

if not coming on, check power to pump ,and air pump relay .

go the air pump itself and give power to it does it come on ,with straight power ?

do you have a bmw scanner or equivalent that you can communicate with air suspension module

Please let me know

Thank You
