Do you have the performance ride and touring ride buttons? I believe that you should. If you have those buttons then you do have the ELC.

ELC has nothing to do with the performance ride option.

If you have ELC, you should have the level sensor on the right rear a-arm, a compressor under the hood near the TB, and little air lines going to the struts.

You don't have to have the Adjustible suspension to have auto leveling. Is there an air hookup by the trunk latch? That'* a good sign.

Don't count on an SE having the option.

Blown fuse? You should hear something when you hit "on". I get a click and whirring.

Should be standard. Do you have the utility inflator in the trunk? Right next to the latch? In the striker trim?

Look under the car from the rear. Do you see a small round bar attaching a sensor arm from the underside of the car to the right rear A-arm?
