Default No air, when I push the "AIR" button in the trunk

I have looked at all the fuses, tried to find a relay, no joy. When I push the air button in the trunk, the compressor doesn't start. Any ideas ?


Thanks in advance

Don

Pop the switch out and verify power to the switch. Verify that the switch opens and closes.

If you do not have power to the switch, chase down the wiring with a volt meter and look for a break.

if the switch does not open and close, replace the switch.

If you have a load levelling system on your car, there is an air pump that pumps up the rear shocks. There will also be an air hose in the tool kit in your trunk. Open the trunk, and next to the latch striker will be a schaeder valve and a button. Screw the hose on to the valve, turn the ignition to on, press the button, and you have a source of compressed air.

Do you have a sunroof? If you do, the next trick we can show you is how to open it into vent position (the rear edge of the sunroof pops up).
