Hi. Have you checked the fuses? Sometimes when the air compressor goes bad it blows a fuse. I recommend inspecting all the fuses in the box under the hood.

I checked all fuses under the hood

Have you checked the front height sensors? There should be one on the left front and right front suspension. Sometimes they pop off and cause low suspension.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No I haven't
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 9 months ago.

I would check that next. That would be the next most common and easiest thing to check. If the height sensors are good, next some electrical diagnosis may be needed. Along with possibly checking codes in the air suspension module.

Eric I checked all fuses again and it one fuse in the trunk that keeps blowing. Do you have any diagram for the fuses in the trunk and under the hood? I don't have the paper that's normally in the fuse cover
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 9 months ago.

Yes I can access the workshop manual diagrams through the website. But there is a small fee of 5 dollars for creating the PDF files and sending them. It allows access to unlimited PDFs. Is that something you are interested in? Otherwise you can tell me which fuse is blowing and I can let you know what fuse it is for. Let me know please.
