    Air compressor for the Load Level/ Air ride suspension

    I Need some help, I must confess that I am not a Cadallac owner, but I needed a small tiny air compressor to operate a small air ram and I went to the junk yard and ended up getting a small compressor that came out of a cadilac. The junkyard was a little useless at providing any info on the model, year etc of the pump. They think mabe an "88 caddy" as they put it.

    There is a black ground wire, green wire that turns the pump on and a white and orange wire that comes out of the top. I do not know what the white and orange wire are for and was hoping that someone might know what they are for.

    If it helps this was stamped on the housing:

    Delco Products

    Probably the exhaust valve.

    It's basically a soleniod valve that releases the pressure in the lines.

    White orange wire is for power, black for ground. Green is test lead, not connected at all normally. The pump is activated by a level sensor which supplies power to the orange/white wire. In the car, to verify the pump is good we would hook a jumper wire from the battery postive post to the green wire which should activate the pump regardless of level sensor position. I would use either wire as power.
