    It's the air compressor for the self-leveling rear suspension system. Most likely a leak in the system or a broken ride height sensor had it constantly running and draining the battery so it was just unplugged. If you have an issue with the back of the car riding low because you often carry passengers and or weight then you'll have to make repairs to leave it plugged in.

    Thanks buddy! Will likely have it fixed even though I'm usually the only one in the car.

    Hey Poppa, something I thought of after I posted. The compressor motor could be shorted out. So reasearch which fuses will blow if so and have some availiable before you just plug it in. If it blows fuse(s) you will be ready and then know to replace the compressor before reconnecting it again.

    How long have you had the car with the compressor unplugged.
