Having the switch off on the compressor wouldn't cause the pump to over inflate. Not sure on all the years, but there is a control in the trunk right here.

Pull back the liner and you should see it.

Now your year may be different. Now if that plug was some how hit hard and the plug was knocked out or damaged, it would cause the problem your having.

Default No Button

Nope, no button to the left or right of the latch. Nice flat spot where one might be mounted but no button. I just saw the above pictures, I will have to look there next.

Look at the components to see if anything looks damaged, disconnected or out of place.

Accessory inflator button, RIM and height sensor mechanism are the most likely culprits.
Did you look at the height sensor mechanism?

It does not look damaged or unplugged.

I would pull the ELC switch out and test it. It'* located in the left rear wheel well. I believe the switch is normally open and would probably indicate a closed at all position with a DMM.

I have the height lever and switch it connects to, and the Rear integration module out of a 00 SSEi. If you think it will work for you, I'd let them go cheap. $25 shipped. They should work, but I have not tested them personally.

I believe they have a similar system. They did have the rear air assist, and if you have the trunk inflator, there is a good chance you have it. i would also check the mounts and springs if they are not level side to side.
