I just fixed my air suspension issues by replacing the 15amp fuse in the drivers side panel marked ECS!! Fuse wasn’t blown but the pins were discolored brownish black. Now the front and back air bags are going up and down on command and no ECS warning light. Woooohoo!!
Where is this fuse box? Picture please

It is the air fill tube for the reservoir tank. If the system gets too low in air for the compressor to fill then it has to be done manually by the service shop. And as far as I know it has to be done by the Hyundai service shop. They have the only equipment in town.
Jaypee, what was the resolution to this for you. I am looking at buying the RMT front struts but would like to know what I am looking at as it relates to the other costs. As I understand it you replaced the struts but the compressor didn't fill the bags? What is the process you found was needed? Many thanks

I did not buy it from a Hyundai dealer. And yes, they are just trying to take advantage of the situation. Jerks
Does anyone know if swapping to the 2011 Hyundai Genesis shocks and struts would work in the 2011 Equus or is there a specific reason as to why we MUST purchase strutmasters kit?

Hey, I know this is an older thread, but there are ways to fix this economically. I had the same issues, sagging front end. I bought RMT remanufactured struts and installed. After installation I calibrated them using the autotel scanner that connects via bluetooth. That scanner can be set to region-specific and car specific. I was able to inject air with my craftsman air compressor (which is essential)d, just make sure you use the correct port and calibrated my tires/wheels just like they do at the dealership. Really the most difficult part of the job is separating the ball joints. Everything else is a piece of cake. Really not a tough job at all. If you have a dual point leak down (front driver and front passenger) I doubt it's a solenoid. Usually, one or both of the struts have failed. I inspected my old struts and aside from the old accordion cover being brittle, I couldn't find any leaks. The air suspension is extremely simple - air goes in and without leaks, the struts shouldn't deflate. If they deflate, then you have a leak and that's where the fun begins, chasing the leak. But 10 out of 10 it's the struts that go bad. Again, buy a pancake compressor, get the right fitting and you'll fix in no time.
