Mine is starting to sag again. I think I need to remove the air lines and cut them a bit. I think they're deformed now and it's causing them to slowly leak.

But what's weird is my compressor isn't filling them unless I do it manually in ISTA. FML.

Your compressor might be timing out to prevent it from burning out, is there any errors in ista?

It's a very slow leak though. Like three weeks to get uncomfortable. It's so slow i would expect the compressor to easily compensate and me not even know there was a leak. When it was leaking bad before to one side the compressor would at least fill every day when started.

And not really found how to detect errors in ISTA yet. I do run a check on the sensors with no issues that I've seen. And the compressor does fill them after I complete the sensor check. As it does find them low.

I found info online, that the suspension air compressor times out because it is water logged. Therfor you dont inflate, not because of leaking bags. There is a simple fix, by emptying the old dessicant from the pump, and replace with fresh dessicant beads. Apparently a $12 fix. Anyone in Bimmerland follow this lead?

Problem is, I can't locate the air compressor on my 2015 X5 7-seater. It's supposed to be under the spare tire. I don't have a spare tire, I have a third row, no panels to remove...

The air compressor is under the passenger seat. Access from bottom of the car.

Also found in ISTA that I had a voltage issue with my driver side rear level sensor. So I bought a new one and fingers crossed it helps with the compressor not filling automatically

The cable is called Enet. Google it.

As for the software, you won't find it on amazon...

I have the same problem.
The driver side suspension is deflated if i start the car for a few minutes and shut or start the vehicule just to move to another parking lot for a minute, then the driver side is all deflated.
But if i use the vehicule like normal, it wont deflat.
What could be the problem?
Thanks for any replay and sorry if im not explaining it well

You need to replace the air bags, as they are leaking. And yes, replace both, it's just a matter of time before the other one starts leaking as well.

If you continue to drive like this, you'll burn the air compressor.
