Default Air suspension issues

I have been observing this vehicle for the past couple of days. Yesterday I drove the car to work let it sit for twelve hours (checking it periodically) and there was no movement. Went to movies and dinner, arriving back home around eleven and still no problem. This morning around five the left rear tire was down, pretty much under the wheel well, I could not get the car to lift so I guess it lowered the passenger rear to compansate. After arriving at work both rear tires where down, and the minute I shut the car off and shut the door both rear tires are raised.

The past two days there has not been any movement form my suspension, I still get the yellow suspension light sometimes, but it does go away.

Sounds like an Air Leak at the left rear, if that is that side that goes out first.

The over heat is because the air pump switches off due overheating because it's trying to pump air in to lift the car continuously, it will eventually fail $1500 for a new one.

The air leak could be air line, but more likely the strut has failed.
