    My 12-year old in the back seat sets off the air ride compressor

    I have had a 2000 DHS for about 10 months. I have been solve air ride the entire time. The compressor would come when I started the car and intermitently while I was driving. I replaced the air shocks and there was no improvement. I scored a used compressor for about $100 about a month ago and I didn't hear the compressor for about three weeks. Now the air ride compressor is coming on all the time. And the new thing is that when my teenager gets in the rear passenger seat the compressor kicks in and will stay on for a minute or two. It doesn't happen when someone gets in on the driver's side.

    How many other things could go wrong on the air ride system? I am going going check the level ride sensor. Where else should I look?

    Thanks for the help.

    I think it was operating normally before you changed the shocks and compressor. Now you probably have a small leak in one of the air lines, most likely at one of the connection points.
