No, but when you turn it on you should get a humming noise under the hood.

OK, it'* not working right. Check fuses 5B and 9B in the instrument panel fuse box. Then from there we will go to the relay.

Thanks for the tip,
5b was fine but 9b was missing, when I put one in, if I press the on and off buttons on the tire inflator, I hear a clicking from right rear of trunk (like a relay), but don't hear the compressor.

OK, under the RH side of the dashboard, there is a relay center. The ELC relay is 5th one down on the right side. Try switching it with another relay (like the one right below it for the trunk) and then test both the compressor and the trunk and see what happens.
