Hi and thanks for contacting YourMechanic. The issue is the level actuator is not functioning correctly and causing the system to leak out the air and not refill the air bags. Then when the level actuator works, then air bags inflate back up until the next time the actuator malfunctions. I recommend replacing the level actuator. If you need further assistance troubleshooting your vehicle, then seek out a technician, such as one from YourMechanic, that can assist you with the air suspension system.
