No I don't hear it switching on (new relay). Before I purchased a new relay I opened the old relay and manually made the compressor work but the front end still did not rise. I did rise both sides (but not fast) prior to me changing the tire. Could their be a valve stuck open somewhere? I don't hear any air leakage.

And it does not switch on with the new relay fitted? Something does not add up here, did the system work normally before this?

Far as I know it did. I recently purchased the car and the person was driving it daily. I had it parked for about 3 weeks then I changed the tire and thats when the front end went down. Don't know if this matters but the dash was dark (out of warranty) when I had it repaired the abs, bas, esp lights come on. I've seen online that when it says abs that it will automatically cause the bas and esp to come on. Would any of this have to do with the airmatic system? Sorry for the delay, I'm checking in from work.

Was this car in a flood or even in an area that was flooded before you bought it?

Not that I can tell. I did see some moister on the passenger side can/sam. The fuse box tops will not fit tightly.

Have you had the fault codes read? And make sure there is no water in that fuse/relay box.

I took them out and made sure they were dry. I have not had the codes read since since the dark instrument cluster repaired. The codes the pulled when they fixed it were as follows:

C1200 ( I put in a new switch - its fixed )
P1925
C1000
C1026
C1517
C1013 ( I have had the battery in and out. Its currently out )

Well you need to get the air pump working and then check for leaks between the pump and valve block, the block sits on top of the pump.

Ok, but everything looks really close together under there. Do you know of any videos or slides posted that show exactly how to do that? Also, what are the codes? (late night here. talk to you tomorrow, thanks for all of the great help so far. I really appreciate it.)
