Self Leveling Suspension Inactive question...

I had the "Self Leveling Suspension Inactive" error come up two weeks ago. The code read static capacity of compressor. I cleared the code and it came back after 5 or so more drives. I picked up the compressor rebuild kit from BagpipingAndy, but my question is - if none of my corners are sagging currently and I've driven 5 times since the indicator showed up again...would anyone advise to not drive it a few more times before being able to repair? I won't get to the repair until this weekend, but will ground it if I should. Could anyone advise me? It's an '06 4.8is with original suspension setup (some fresh bags, some bags with age). Thanks!

Adam

If you can get the compressor to run once by resetting the code that is the route I would take.

You will be riding on the bump stop no shock or spring if the bag is deflated. You risk some significant damage if you hit a solid obstruction like a bad pot hole in that condition.

Thank you for THAT! I will get code cleared before next drive.
