I just went through this problem on my 97 PA. One of the biggest issues here is the OEM pump for the auto leveling feature, located under the right rear fender behind the wheel, has an inlet filter in the frame rail right by the pump which alows water salt and dirt to enter the pump module. The end result is the valve seats in the pump module corrode and leak causing the pump to run excessively and some times burn out.
