Default 96 Ssei ari shocks

On my 96 bonny the back end is sagging and it doesnt air up itself. Also what is the inflator switch for, when i push i hear a click, is there anything else that is supposed to happen besides the click. Help would be greatly appreciated

After the click, there should be air at the schrader (little valve next to the button) for filling things like your tires etc. If you don't hear the compressor under the rear passenger fender kick on, check the fuse and or compressor.

it sounds like a bad air compressor but dont quote me on that, are the shocks good, how about the fuses, and do u hear any noise coming from the compressor when u put he ignition switch in the on position,

if the rubber is broken then the shocks are bad also listen for a hissing sound the fuse is either under the dash driver side or under the dash passenger side behind kick panel, but if you cant hear anything coming on then it is probably the compressor, but check fuse first

On my 97 Bonneville the key has to be on for the pump to work if using the button in the trunk, otherwise the relay just clicks.
