Rear shocks, Air compressor

Asked by Sep 15, 2017 at 01:07 PM about the 2001 Pontiac Bonneville

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Replaced the rear air shocks on my 2001 Pontiac
Bonneville, including the air lines and hoses
coming off the compressor.
The air compressor kicks on for 5 sec.  then shuts
off. Doesn't want to fill. Rechecked the lines, which
are fine. Turned the key on and placed my fingers
on the compressor/ regulator holes..As it came on,
as covering, it went off again. Rear is on its
springs. Can't find anyone that knows what might
be the problem. Can't even purchase a new one!
Please help

Sounds like the compressor has a sensing issue and is probably failing. If you can't buy a new one there are probably some available in the used part dealers. If that provides no solution, you may want to think about replacing the air ride shocks with standard shocks if these are still the originals or just worn out.
