Q: Airmatic system not rising

asked by on

The airmatic system on my car is not rising.

Issues with this system are not common. The system has a set of bags that get filled with air to level the car when the sensors determine it is riding low. If the pump fails or the bags themselves develop a leak the system will not come back up. If a line leaks the issue is the same because the pump is not designed to provide enough pressure to maintain the ride height on its own if the system is not holding the air. A qualified mechanic will be able to determine if there is a leak or if the pump failed and suggest an appropriate repair.
