NF rear airbags not working

Hope someone can help me with this one. The rear suspension has decided that it doesn't want to engage the compressor and as a result the rear is in the lowermost position. I pressed the drivers door courtesy light switch to get it to do the self diagnosis and the "check susp" light came on. Not flashing, it just turned on and didn't go away until you turn the ignition off again. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

Re: NF rear airbags not working

check the fuse possibly, otherwise the compressor sounds not functional, they are real simple though and pulling them apart is not all that complicated, even though they are listed as 'non' servicable, i like SLS and am keeping mine, most people will tell you to ditch the SLS though.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Cheers. I was starting to think it could have been the switch in the back that activates the compressor. Didn't even think of just trying the fuse . Compressor itself was rebuilt 3 months ago.

Re: NF rear airbags not working

The switch has one plug to it, is easily removed, and unless a solder joint has gone dry in the module, there is not much that can go wrong inside it, I pulled mine apart before i rebuilt my compressor.

Re: NF rear airbags not working

Might take the switch off and take a quick look. Maybe one of the plugs has come loose. Oh well, food for thought. I'm interstate at the moment so when I get back at the end of January I'll give everything the once over. Will keep you updated. Cheers.
