Default my air suspension (electonic load leveling)

I think I'm the only one with this problem and I envy all SSEi'* lol. My rear gets so low I can barely see the top of the tires. Also it sometimes interfere with my accelertion by makin the accelerator stiff, steering, and if I got people in the back seat you'll think my suspesion is dead with all the bouncing. How can I check this? Everything else seems pretty easy. One more thing, does anybody know how to bypass the automatic light control for the 96-99 bonnies so I can drive without the headlihgts all the time si I can have the fog and parking lights on only?

Do you have the utility air outlet in the trunk? If you do, turn it on and verify that the compressor under the hood (between the airbox and strut tower) is running. If it is, do you get air out in the trunk? You need to make sure your compressor is running if you have the ELC problem you're describing. If it works, you may have a strut sensor problem.

No, I'm trying to get you to go out and see if the compressor works so we can figure out what'* wrong with your car. The utility air outlet in your trunk doesn't have anything to do with the ELC, but it uses the same compressor. Just go see if the comp works. We'll go from there.

Default air compressor

yeah it works pump air in my members cars and kids bikes all the time from there. Instead of gas station people come to me. Just let them know it pumps slow, but gets job done.

Ok, the compressor works. So now you need to check your fuses. The ELC may not have power. Also, check the air lines to the rear struts. Make sure you don't have a leak. After that, we'll worry about the struts. Keep us posted.
