check the relay for the airmatic compressor it is on the passenger side in the engine compartment right next to the hood hinge. pull the cover off and its the 3rd relay back from the front. the relay might be sticking closed but have it checked before it causes the compressor to burn itself out

Replace struts


To remove the struts on a Mystique, Loosen the lug nuts on both front tires. With a hydraulic jack, raise the vehicle on one side, then place a jack stand under the vehicle and adjust it to the proper height for the vehicle to rest on. Repeat this step for the opposite side.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2010 E350 12K miles - every 10 seconds a hissing sound from under the hood after car is turned off for 10 minutes. What could that be?


It could be the suspension if you have the semi airmatic suspension equipped on the vehicle. It will level itself out to a certain height after the vehicle is turned off. Most of the time the wagons are equipped with a self leveling suspension at least for the rear. The pump and the filter where the air would release is in the right front underneath the headlight if i remember correctly

Can not get car to rise or lower car sits on wheels


possibly faulty airmatic pump for suspension, first open boot and boot floor mat then have look on spare wheel, you can see your tools extra fuses and fuse diagram on it, take fuse diagram and read it you can find what's the fuse no and fuse box where is the airmatic pump fuse and relay is, check fuse and relay first, if the fuse blown replace same fuse for that now you know where are the extra fuses, get one from that, start engine is the car not rise up operate the switch above the radio still not working either faulty airmatic pump or control unit, you can check pump yourself turn steering fully left, remove clips from bulkhead inside wheel arch only need to remove front section then have a good look inside you can see airmatic pump is hanging on chassis rail under the right head light, have a good look wires on pump if it dried and broken that's the fault, only solution either repair pump or replace new pump. if not the faulty pump you have to get diagnose the car by experience technician, is this information helped you?

I have the car to low error message on the display the bags are bottomed out and wont raise up. its on a e 500 2003


The suspension has a leak somewhere and/or the airmatic compressor has stopped working properly. You need either the Mercedes star diagnosis system (SDS) in order to access the suspension control module to tell it to raise the vehilce or you can try to trick it by jacking up the car so it thinks it's sitting at the correct ride height. But as long as the display reads a warning it won''t allow the airmatic compressor to run.

1992 Subaru legacy ls wagon w/air suspension. Air pump appears to be working but very low, bumpy ride. Does not appear the shocks are working properly.


your shocks are leaking or a leak in the lines or pump it has a rolling diaphram when you hit a speed they lower and raise on speed

if you cant find the leak you can pump the strut with a compressor if it has a leak replace it if they are expensive and you wish a cheeper fix you can cap off the front lines or rear or replace all of them with regular coils and struts if off a used car the struts may be bad the spring is heavy and the strut needs to be removed and checked if its bad get new ones they are not cheep but the air ride struts new are a grand or better well they use to be a used one was a few hundred i replaced them with springs on a gl-10 years ago and the light may blink remove the bulb or a wire under the drivers side seat not sure on that year

Car sat for 5 days not driven, now get "Stop car too low" error


Sounds like you may have a leak in the airmatic suspension struts on the rear. These govern the height of the car in different modes. Not an immediate problem unless you are loosing a visible amount of fluid but it will only get worse.

To check if you have airmatic you will have buttons just behind the gear lever which can be used to put the car in to a stiffer, lower mode or to raise it for rough ground

Do struts have to me replaced when fluid is leaking?


no you do not! this is a congame! unless your struts do not return to full ride height in one two two bounces when you push on the front of your hood you do not need to replace them. they wear out just like shocks
