HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

If you have the old air suspension shocks, check the resistance on them to get the ohms you need for the resistors to bypass the system and turn the light off. They do vary a bit from vehicle to vehicle, but usually somewhere between 400 and 900 ohms.

If you dont have them anymore, then install variable resistors so you can dial it in until the light is turned off
