    Unhappy Rear shocks stay up-help-99 Seville SLS

    On My 99 Seville SLS the rear shocks stay up all the way and the car rides like a rock. The compressors sounds like it is staying on all the time. I don't have any codes. Can anyone help me to release the shocks until I can repair the problem whatever it may be? I need the car to go to work and in this economy that is a luxury.

    The compressor and sensor are located inside the right rear fenderwell. Jack up the car and pull the wheel. The height sensor arm is attached to the lower suspension arm. If it has become disconnected it will send a false height signal to the system, possibly giving the compressor a bad run command.

    Check the connectors and wiring for integrity.
