Hi guys well don’t no were to start, after doing front discs and pads, lower ball joints / inner and outer rack ends and track rods ,I now have what seems like a complete suspension failure, I was driving to work the other day in heavy rain , puddles etc parked up all was good, when I went to go home I noticed compressor not starting up , so I switched off and restarted and comp came on , which it does intermittently, but only runs for a short while and car doesn’t lift, hieght level light on dash stays solid and car is completely flat HELP🤯any ideas

If it's worked for a while and stopped working now it's most likely a loose connection inadvertently left once you'd finished the work. Rain water could've triggered a short. That may have caused a fault with a fuse as well.

You could, alternatively, just disconnect the Battery for a while and see if that helps, specially if you did the suspension work with the Battery connected.

I'm not sure about the intermittent compressor description. Has it become intermittent now or was it misbehaving before as well?

Whilst looking around the engine bay just noticed top hose all sucked in , a guy I was talking to said could be the radiator cap leaking any ideas
