Is there power at the compressor? If not, check the level switch located at the rear of the vehicle (connects the rear axle to the body via a small arm that moves with body up/down motion)

We have a 04 Navigator, we replaced several air ride height sensors and solenoids. We re-scaned and had the following C1991 and C1990 and it wouldn't take the re-programing. Ford suggested we replaced...


Befoe that expense which may still be your only option reset your system by Disconnecting and reconnecting you battery and check for a blown fuse to the motor if all is the same then replace your pump.

Lift sensor for rear of 1988 Deville


To begin with, check the "ride level" fuse and make sure that the ride level compressor does work, and you should be able to hear that the ride level compressor is working when the ride level system is leveling the vehicle.

The ride level system uses an air compressor and either an air type of shocks or a type of air billow to raise and lower the vehicle, there is an adjustment to set the ride height and it is located under the vehicle and there is a control lever or rod that should be connected between the rear axle and a switch that is mounted on the body of the vehicle, and there will be an adjustment slot in the control lever between the switch and the body, and that is how you would adjust the ride level height, but be sure that the vehicle can not drop any further down if someone is under the vehicle trying to adjust the ride height.

However, you might find that the control lever to the ride level has fallen off from the switch on the body or it has come loose from the rear axle, and it is just hanging there not operating the switch on the body that controls the the ride level compressor, or there might be a blown out air shock or billow, or you might find that an air line from the compressor is leaking and the ride level compressor will just run continuously until it blows out the fuse, and if that is the case you might also find out that the air compressor has burned out from running continuously.

I hope that this information will help you to solve your ride level problem.

Check the gas pressure, if it low it inhibits the relay that energises the compressor.

1997 Lincoln Continental Suspension Conversion Problem


It could be a wheel speed sensor that went out or something... When working with the wiring, something could have just gotten crossed or tapped to get these codes as well. The compressor shouldnt be running anymore if everything was tied off properly. Take it in somewhere and have the codes cleared and that should fix the problem hopefully. I know AutoZone has a reader, but I do not know if they have they ability to clear the codes.
I hope this helps.

Air Ride on 1994 Buick Park Avenue


You have what is called a height/load leveler switch located on rear axle of vehicle .Check to see if the arm (which moves and kicks on compressor when ride height is low) Is connected and moving freely..You then might want to make sure that the air supply lines atatched to air shocks or air bags are not leaking.. If all checks out fine and you decide to disable compressor you can do this by unplugging harness that connects to compressor...And then you can manually adjust your ride height by adding air to the valve on compressor (it resembles a tire valve stem) this will adjust your your ride height and you can let air out at same location if lower height is desired.. This is a little inconveinient but will bypass automatic system as you requested.

No air reaching air bags/compressor does not come on when car turned on


This is a very common problem with all Lincolns. The air ride suspension are marketed as a luxury-comfort item but most do not know that they have a 100% failure rate and are designed to fail as shortly after the warranty expires as possible. The air bags that support the weight of the vehicle are not designed to withstand temperatures below 40 degrees or above 94 degrees and are very prone to dry rot. Once the bags start getting tiny cracks and leaks they start overworking the compressor. (Picture trying to blow up a balloon with holes in it.. you will try for as long as you can but will ultimately have to give up) These air ride systems can be very difficult to accurately diagnose the first time and consequently very expensive. Most people seem to be converting to a passive suspension system these days as the ride quality is too similiar to notice a difference and the reliability is paramount. http://www.strutmasters.com offers a high quality conversion kit that utilizes powder coated American steel coil springs that are actually designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle. http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm there is a direct link to the Lincoln page. I hope this helps save some of you a little bit of grief and a lot of money in the long run!!
