: Some motor running when turning off and on vehicle

I just bought a 2002 Escalade so I may have a few newbie questions in the next few weeks. I've always wanted the Escalade since it came out but, was spending too much time/$ on my other projects. Now I finally have one!

Here's the first... A minute or 2 after I turn the ignition on or off, I hear some kind of motor kick on for 30 seconds or so around the back axle. What is this? I'm hoping it's not a bad fuel pump ready to go.

TIA

That's the air compressor for the air-ride.

Yea, the shocks on the Escalades are air shocks, filled via an air compressor.
