How do I troubleshoot the compressor

Postby Coyote1 » Tue Sep 02, 2014 12:30 am



Where do I start when troubleshooting the compressor? It shows 29 psi on the panel but I cannot raise the pressure. It runs when the increase button is pushed but does not show any change in pressure. Also, it seem to hardly decrease when that button is pushed and does not run when the outlet button is pushed. I've never gotten into one of these systems so any suggestions would be appreciated.


The further I go the behinder I get.

You have to press P check and increase to add air to the shock. I think for the outlet you need the key in the P position.

Forgot about the key position. Figured out that my problem was the fill hose being connected to the outlet valve. Disconnected that and everything works.
Thanks for the help.

Yup, when the fill hose is connected to the outlet, it connects the air system to the outside world, and you will not be able to create any pressure.
