There is a compressor,hoses,sensors,fuses. Start with the fuses - a blown one means an overload occurred;changing the fuse doesn't solve the question about what caused the overload. These air systems live a limited life and your's is well on in years Let me know if you find a blown fuse and what that fuse protected (see your owner's manual for fuse location and description). Get back with what you find and we can continue..

P.S. get back if you don't find a blown fuse too, there are other things to do whether or not blown fuse is found.
