    Thanks for all the help guys looks like i will be ordering a new pump. Will have a look for the valve block. Of course my warrenty wise dose not cover air suspention thats typical that is.

    If there is a header tank top right of the engine then it has ABC. Or we could check with the VIN.

    I thought only the V8 and V12 had ABC, never seen a 320 with ABC, my 2 cents worth is the level sensor rod had seized and snapped of the rear anti rollbar..........

    Its AirMatic not ABC. All the ABC parts just come up as invalid for this vehicle on EPC.

    I remembered just a few days ago that the car seem to lifting and dropping every now and then when sat in traffic. Could this help diagnose which part is faulty.

    Been thinking on it all night and can not figure out why its not getting the 12v at the pump even when the switch is pressed....that being said will it only flick up fast which means by the time i have pressed it and got round to see the meter reading its gone?
    Have found you can get a pump for £214 with 2 years warranty.

    I was working under the impression that yours had ABC, it does not. Please ignore everything I've said as it doesn't relate to pneumatic systems!!!
