How do i go about grounding the compressor test lead before lowering my 93 deville after i have installed new struts?

Someone please walk me through this like I'm a four year old child. With my new struts installed it says before lowering the car this must be done but doesn't explain how.

Turn the Key:ON and wait 8 - 10 seconds. The ELC compressor should come on and preload the shocks - it will run for a couple of seconds or so.

If the compressor does not run for a second or so about 10 seconds after EVERY Key:ON then you have problems with either the height sensors or the compressor assembly itself.

Front struts, rear shocks.

Update your profile to show your car, model, year, mileage - it sure helps to know if we're diagnosing a Cadillac or a John Deere.
