Q: Air suspension system not working

asked by on

The air suspension system in my car is malfunctioning, and as a result, my car is riding low. I am not sure if it is a switch, a relay, a compressor, or if it is leaking somewhere. I need to find out what I need to have done to fix it.

There is most likely a leak somewhere. It is possible that there could be an electrical malfunction as well. I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic. They can come to your location and determine the cause of your air suspension malfunction.
