Exclamation Audi A8 Air Ride

Hey Guys!

I'm new to this forum and have been searching all over for some answers to the problem I am having while working on an 2005 Audi A8 V8.

Issues: air ride compressor is not turning on. Warning lights are on with default "standard and automatic" options. Right front is completely lowered.

Prior to me working on this, a shop diagnosed this car to having a bad air compressor and right front level sensors.

I ordered the parts and installed them with no change. I have also replaced the blown air ride fuse and relay under the dash to rule those out.

I did get a Vag Com cord and tried pulling more codes, I only have Vag Com Lite software but it will not pull codes for the air ride.

Am I missing something? I could really use all inputs and suggestions.

Thank you!!

I just put direct power to the new pump and works as it should. Hopefully there is an Audi genius out there that can off some good advise!
