2008 "L" new rear air suspension bags, but no air!

I thought this was too easy...
Lincoln dealer quoted me 4K, so I figured I'd look it up, and it seemed pretty straight forward. And the part, albeit from China, was rather inexpensive, comparatively speaking.
It's just plug and play, what could go wrong?

Air bag remains airless.

It's not the compressor, it was working fine just before the job.
Not the relay, can hear it clicking on ignition.
Not the fuse, checked that.
I'm stumped.

Admittedly, I don't have a manual, so I might be missing an all-important step here. Is there a reset of some sort that has to be done on change?
Ass end is now almost on the ground (or so it seems).
Should have paid the dealer...
NOT!

Hello White,

This procedure shows the only controls for the air suspension reset. If this fails to work then the vehicle must have a scaner connected with bi derectional controls to further test the system and assist in pinpointing any problems with the system.

2007 Expedition/Navigator Workshop Manual
NOTE: The message center is located on the instrument cluster and displays important information through a constant monitoring of vehicle systems. You may select display features on the message center for a display of status proceeded by a brief chime. The system will also notify you of potential vehicle problems with a display of system warnings followed by a long indicator chime. The message center is used to disable and enable the vehicle air suspension system. When the driver elects to disable the air suspension system, the message center sends a message over the high-speed controller area network (HS-CAN) bus to the air suspension module. Once the message is received, the air suspension module will take no further action to inflate or deflate the air springs. The system will default to ON when the ignition key is cycled.

Turn the ignition to the ON position, close all doors and clear warnings.
Select the SETUP control function on the message center.

Select the AIR SUSPENSION function to display the current status of the air suspension system.

Press the RESET control to turn the air suspension OFF or ON.
