I bought a 2008 air ride air pump to use on my hotrod. I just got it in the mail. Problem is I don't know the wiring on this pump. It has a red and black wire together and a green and blue wire together all into one plug . I need to know how to wire to hot wire etc. Any help. I just want to compressor to pump air when I turn on a switch. Dave.

You want to replace the air ride? I think that car would have air bags and not shocks. I have a friend that has one of those older huge Mercury Cougars and hers has air ride. The pump went bad and as I searched for new pumps I did find a site that sells a kit to replace the air bags with coil springs.
I don't know what the site was anymore but I do know they are out there so doing a web search would not be futile.
It is possibly located under either one of the front guards, I had a 1990 ford fairlane (Australian) and that is where the Air Ride compressor was located in that.
They usually run dry and wont pump the Air into the system, I removed the 2 rear Air Shocks from mine and replaced them with normal air shocks that you pump up at the garage and never had any more trouble.
I had that problem with my ford fairlane (Australian Ford) there is a little compressor that pumps the air up when you turn the ignition on, it is located under the front right guard looking from inside the car.
I was told to remove the air shocks in the rear and replace them with air shocks that you pump up at the garage as the air line from the shocks go to a valve in the boot.
I did this and never had another problem with the rear suspension but I had heaps more problems with the car over a 4 year period and decided to sell it as it was never ending, I have never bought another ford since and never will
Hope this helps you
Any knowlegable mechanic knows about these air rides and if the car had to be on a lift and they didnt turn the air ride off will blow the air bags---In the trunk look to the right side and theres a switch to turn the air ride off/on.make sure its on.
located on the drivers side ( In the trunk ) there is a switch. make sure switch is turned on. When off this will disable your air ride and air ride pump cause- it not to work.. It may have been dis-abled. this could be your problem... Good luck
