I have a 2008 dts...
I have a 2008 dts. I replaced the compressor, level switch and struts. 40 amp fuse and relay under the hood are good. 40 amp fuse under the rear seat is good. The compressor still will not turn on. Any ideas?

very sorry for the delay...........

.

There are "3" types of Suspension
Automatic Level Control
Electronic Suspension Control
Air Suspension

Which one do you have?
Did you perform the "Calibration Procedure" when you replaced the Compressor?

I'm not sure.. I do know that I it's not the electronic..the struts only have airlines hooked to them. The compressor hasn't run sense I installed it. Does a dealer have to preform some sort of reset on the computer?

sorry for the delay, as I was off line at that time.........
Whenever the Compressor is replaced, the Calibration Procedure needs to be done via GM Dealer Scan Tool or equal.
There is NO "manual procedure" without the use of Scan Tool.
Prior to the Calibration Procedure the System needs to be Tested & ALL Trouble Codes Repaired & Cleared
Apprx 1 hour labor
