Default ELC Leak.

When I connect the pump it runs forever and the back of the car never raises any so I have it unplugged atm. I am wondering where I should start to look for leaks. And how exactly I should check for them?

Make sure your air lines are connected to the struts. Then do this:

I'll dig up the pics for you if I can find them. But in a nutshell, the stuts will bubble where the air is leaking out.

And take a look to see if the sensor arm (right rear suspension has a flat black box behind the spring) is fully attached.
