Can't advise without knowing what the fault code states. Buy yourself an IIDTool from GAP Diagnostics and you'll be able to do that.

Sounds like a leak.

put vehicle in off road height, any hissing sounds?

if not, measure all 4 corners and disable EAS(fuse or battery), remeasure in 12-24 hours.

Soapy water in a spray bottle and look for the bubbles on airbag and around the hose connection.

How do I test the front valve block and see if that is the culprit?

Replaced air suspension compressor as it went bad. Still need to replace front driver side air spring assembly. Need suggestions on where best to buy and if I replace just the leaky one or both fronts at the same time.

Both, in a non air ride vehicle you would never change out one shock.

Dealer was positive I had a leak and suggested I replace all four corners. I replaced the compressor and all 3 valve blocks instead. So far so good. It can sit for week with only about a 1/4" drop.
