Default ELC Adustment? 95 SSE

Hey guys

I just had my rear coils changed and since then haven't heard the compressor kick in at all.The ride seems off like the struts need air so I opened trunk and sat on the ledge for 1 min,compressor didn't kick in.

I checked 60amp fuse/good...checked 20amp/good.

Is there a way to trip the compressor from the adjustment rod/box under the car?..or is it possible it got disconnected under the car? A quick visual with a flash light shows everything intacted.I'm not sure what to look for.

Any ideas?...thanks

Im hoping that you got FE2 coils.......really hoping this...

there is a clip on the arm to remove it from the A arm....you can undo this and force the Sensor upward to make the system to come on to make sure that the ELC height sensor is still functoning.....


ok on the ELC arm where is connects to the Module...you will see a bolt....you can loosen this bolt and will give you ARM adjustment

that arm has a total of 5* of adjustment. 1* of adjustment = 1/4" at the rear bumper

Is that clip on the arm at the bottom,the ball joint part?
The coils are a factory match,thinking about it,I'm sure that I heard the compressor go off once since the change...but not since.
