Air suspension dead after recent repair

I had air suspension repair done a week ago on my 2010 e70 4.8 with adaptive drive. A trusted replaced air compressor and both bags( after market). Everything worked fine until today when I hit a pothole on highway. My x5 behaved just like it did before the repair- rear end is basically sitting on rear tires. I didn't notice any air leak when I was driving. Air compressor didnt activate when i restart the car later on. Called my indy, he said valve may be blocked. What do you guys think?

Thanks in anticipation.

'trusted'?


Maybe a connector or jury-rigged splice was damaged by the pot hole impact? Dont see how a 'blocked valve' would cause he compressor to not run....

You can hear the compressor running when working to try and lift up flat air bags. Are both rears sitting flat or just one side? Do they ever inflate? If it’s one side it’s usually the air bag leaking. If it’s both it can also be the compressor. If you share more info on your similar issue it should be easy to sort out.

Well...I managed to get an old laptop off a mate and load Inpa. I already had the cable...as I bought it a while ago with the intention of connecting to my car.
So...I checked out the suspension and found the inferential ‘modes’.
Shipping, production, garage, energy saving, low tolmode.
It appears ‘shipping mode’ is active.
So...I tried toggling it off/on.
Didn’t seem to change.
So then I toggled the other modes...and I think it was ‘garage mode’ that did it...I just came good and the air bags filled up.
So very happy!!!
