Air suspension frozen?

This is my first post so let me first say Hello! and thanks for having me. I live just south of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is extremely cold here, and during this cold-snap, my air suspension has ceased to operate. Is it possible for the system to freeze up? Any ideas to fix the issue?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I had that happen to me once. I turned on the pump with the switch in rear compartment of truck and the suspension started lifting. Lucky I guess but it worked.

I would try the interior switch.
Could be just as easy as a fuse, or as bad as moisture in the pump its self.I am not super knowlegeable on the Air ride.

Thanks guys

I think it was water in the system. I parked it inside the shop for a couple of hours at work to let it thaw and low and behold the rear rose from the ashes. Now if the temp will just stay above freezing I won't feel like I'm driving a John Deere to work.

Keep a watch on the entire system. Mine started to act up, approx. 1 year later, I replaced my compressor with "Arnott's"

BTW - Welcome fellow Canuck, to TrailVoy!!
