      Hello I have a 2003 Passat on air bags, I am new with airbags.... all I know is I have manual controls on the dash and a tank and compressor in the trunk, next to trunk I see wires running to a relay...

      But my issue is, it’s freezing in Pennsylvania for the past couple days and the other day I went to raise the car and it wouldn’t raise... not sure if lines are frozen but I’m wondering if anyone could help me, and wondering if I can manually force the bags up somehow? I forced the compressor on and it works it just seems maybe a valve to push air to the bags is “frozen” and both valves for the front and rear both don’t work going up, it works going down.

      Hey so I messed with it some more today, I did what I did yesterday and touched the two wires to compressor, I pumped it up to 100 psi and the switches work now and I raised it, so basically the compressor isn’t putting air into the tank like it should be, I guess maybe a pressure switch is bad on the tank? Any ideas ?
