    pressurize the electronic level control system?

    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.

    pressurize the electronic control system

    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.

    This (Compressor test lead) belongs with your suspension post - away we go !!!

    (and again: update your profile with your car, model, year, mileage. It sure helps)
