Rear Air Suspension Fuse Problem

Hello, I have a 2006 Envoy Denali. The 30 amp fuse for my rear air suspension has blown 3 times in the past 3 1/2 months. I purchased this Envoy used back around Christmas so I'm still learning about the vehicle and didn't know it even had rear air suspension until a few months ago!

Any who, back in April when I had it in for an oil change the mechanic told me of the back end sagging. Scary thing was I didn't know was hanging that low! Like I said it's still new to me. He checked it out and told me it was the fuse for the rear air suspension, I had them replace it. Then about a month ago in early June it blew again. This time I knew what to look for. I replaced the 30 amp fuse myself and it fixed the problem. I only had one 30 amp fuse at the time. Then this past weekend (7/9), it blew again! This time I went out and bought a whole pack of 30 amp fuses until I can figure it out!

Does anyone know why it might be blowing this frequently? Is this a bigger problem related to the motor that pumps up the air in the rear? I'm still a noob to how it all works so some education from the nice folks on here is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Yes it's a bigger problem. The fuse is doing its job, and preventing the motor from overheating from overuse (leaky air bags, valves, or hoses) or from a deteriorating compressor itself.

Search here for "Arnott" and you can read up how to replace the system with cheaper replacements than GM, or swap the air bags out for traditional coil springs.

Here is that kit the roadie. It takes all the air out so you will never have a problem with it again
