Hello and Welcome to Just Answer.


I just need a little more info to assist better.

Are you trying to disable the air suspension compressor from running?

Can you describe the problem the vehicle has?

Let me know so we can continue,Thanks Pete!

Yes it keeps on running all the tim
Expert:  Pete replied 6 years ago.

It may be running due to a leak in the air shock or shocks.If the vehicle drops height over night then the vehicle need inspected for an air leak in the suspension system and corrected to fix this problem.

If it isn't leaking down over night then most likely you do not have a leak and you could have a broken or faulty level sensor in the rear of the vehicle,the compressor relay can be stuck on and may need replaced.

You can disable the compressor by removing the ELC/TRAILER fuse which is a 25 amp fuse in the interior instrument panel fuse block.

I would have this checked/tested to locate the source of the failure when you can.

Let me know if you need anything else,click accept if you feel satisfied with your answer as this is how I get credited for my time,Thanks Pete!

Your welcome.

I would have this checked into as soon as you can as the rear shocks will start to lose pressure.You can install the fuse once and awhile to pump them back up again.

Thanks Pete!
