    front and rear bags go down when parked a few days. after starting it back up, front bags will pump up, but back bags wont. Called my mech., he said turn button in the truck off for 15 seconds, ( I turned it off for 3 minutes), then turn ignition back on. I turned engine back on and pumps working now, and everything cool., so far
