Most shops that offer rear suspension service have less than 80% success rate. Not advisable to recommend self service for most people.

Me shock will not extent past this position. What may be the issue?

Too much negative air pressure possibly.

I don't think that the DB Air has adjustable negative air pressure.

Yes but if you have a lot of pressure in any shock and deflate it too quickly the brief pressure difference between the positive and negative chamber can push the piston past the transfer port and the air cannot escape the negative camber thus leaving the shock ‘stuck down’. Here’s a video of the worst case scenario,

internal seal most likely . Hope it’s a warranty issue. Only about 60 miles on it .

Try to inflate it. If the shock begins to extend keep going. This will bring the piston to the port so that they can equalize.

Does it just immediately stop or does it get increasingly harder

Something something seals get nicked or rolled during assembly something something, or the sealhead is out of date and there's an update one...

This is almost always caused by a hard bottom out in cold weather, if you can disassemble the air spring and reassemble with new love you should be good to go.
