Is this expensive to repair? When I am driving in a straight line, it is ok. It hasn't effected mileage. Every time I try to make a sharp turn, it seems the wheels jerk. Is this going to be an expensive repair? Another issue is the rear air shocks loose air. When car is running, it seems like rear end goes up again. I never hear the load levelers working anymore. Thanks for your help. I'm a 74 year old female widow and need some advice. Thank you for your help.

Sometimes rear air suspension goes down overnight and will fill back up when vehicle is started. Compressor and air bags work properly and can find no leaks.

When I step on the gas, there is a high pitched sound that comes out of the speaker. Sometimes it is a loud buzzing noise and if I turn off the radio then it is quieter. It doesn't happen all the time.

on occasion my 2004 ranier rear end sags to the ground.......usually the air compressor will blow up the suspension bags when ignition switch is turned on, and it will be fine for 2-3 days, then will happen again. I do not believe the air bags are leaking, since they stay inflated for days after the problem, and the air compressor is functioning as well. Is there a valve between the air compressor and air bags that coule be malfunctioning? as expensive as repairs are for this, I want to fix the right thing/ please advise.

you can hear very low but can't turn it at full volume it is not any louder then all the way down.

My AC won't work in the front. The rear will work, front will if you are driving on the highway. The blower motor has been replaced still won't blow out the front unless moving. What do I do now? Rear air suspension goes down especially on the drivers side (when cold, rainy or sitting) sometimes it will stay up and others it won't air back up. Usually have to sit and let it run before driving so that it will air up. If there is weight in the back it tends to not air up or if it does it takes a while longer. How do I fix this?

When I come to a stop it sounds like medal to medal, on both sides of my front brakes. I have had both front bearings and hubs replaced, all new brakes installed. But still sounds like medal to medal
and is very loud.
I disconnected the ABS and
the grinding stoped. I still have good brakes. Do I have to replace the whole ABS system? What do I do?

The rear end of my 2004 Buick Rainier is sitting low. The air pump comes on but nothing happens. If I try using the air outlet on the inside of the cargo bay, I don't get any air. Would this be a sign that the pump is dead or that there is a leak in the air bags and/or air lines?

I just had transmission fix was input gear . So I'm sure battery was unplug , what could have happened

Head lights, park light, dome lights will not shut off after engine in cut off.
Then sometimes the light will not come on. What could be wrong and an
approx. estimate.

Lights are staying on. Last night had to unplug battery cable Then at time they won't come on. This is intermittingly.

We tested the blower moter and it's good it worked on the feet and windshield for awhile now that doesn't work either

also, grinding in front left wheel. bearings? what size socket needed . its a large nut .

when temp outside dips below 80 degrees cold air returns

Air will come out the defroster and feet but not out the vents. No issues with fan speeds or volume of air.

Still has power to the rest of the vehicle , after it cools off 15 minutes or so will start back up and run normal for a while

It makes the sound everytime when I make a turn.It was recently check, new rods have been added and the brakes all replaced.

Our rear air suspension leaks air all the time. When we turn car on it airs up but shortly after our car is sagging again and driving like a low rider. It is really bouncy and uncomfortable, not to mention super embarrassing. After doing research it looks like this is a very common problem. So There should be a recall. Is there a way to complain to the company so maybe they will listen and do a recall on this. Becuase it is very costly to fix.

Blower motor stays on


What do it look like.
