Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If one or both sides are at an incorrect height then odds are you have one or more bad height sensors. The height sensors monitor suspension height and send the signal to the module that controls suspension movement. If it was simply low then a leak,compressor failure, etc could be the issue preventing the system from working at all, but if you have one side that's higher than it should be then most likely the module isn't seeing correct height. You can start with a visual inspection of components, if nothing is seen then a scan tool and electrical testing would be needed to diagnose it further.
