Q: Problem with air suspension.

asked by on

My air suspension won't raise up the front of my car anymore.

The front air bags or air lines may have a leak or the height sensor is defective. The most likely cause is the height sensor is defective. Have this problem inspected by a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to ensure that you are getting a proper diagnosis.
