Just purchased gl450.
Air compressor comes on, blows air, but vehicle doesn’t rise, at all.
Os the simple fix a meeting distraction valve? Is it possible the pump isn’t strong enough?

there is also a battery image on the dash, could it be a weak battery?

If the compressor failed its usually from running too much. You have a leak that needs repairing. Typically its one of the air bags. They split right at the point where it rolls back on itself. Raise it to max with the button on the dash. Spray soapy water/windex on each bag all the way around to find which is leaking. Best to replace them in pairs.
In my experience they only last about 60k, even the Arnott ones. PITA to change out, I did mine twice in my driveway.
