Rear of the vehicle is slammed all the way and will not raise up. Rear Suspension is Inactive code on dash. I replaced the relay on the electronic air pump, but it did not fix the problem.

    Most likely a leaking airbag

    With the rear raised, ignition on to engage the pump, spray detergent around the airbag and look for leaks

    Can you hear the compressor when you open the door? If not Check the 30A fuse inside the right hand side cover inside the boot door. If its ok then its probally the compressor. The solution is to replace it, however you can take it out and take off the rear electric motor cover and clean the motor brushes and this should get it working again
