Question about 1996 Lincoln Town Car
The air bag light is flashing and I do not hear the compressor going on. How do you troubleshoot this system and How involved is the removal and replacement of the compressor if need be. The air bags were replaced a year ago so I am not anticipating a problem there.
Air suspension is controlled by the compressor in your engine compartment. The compressor runs when the suspension is not level. Either because you have loaded the car with exceptional weight and the system is now adjusting the ride, or you have a leak in the system, or you have a bad sensor.
If you have a leak, the most likely culprit are the air suspension bags, the air suspension solenoids or possibly the lines to them.

I don't work for either of them. I own a 96 TC and have replaced my air suspension with coil springs form Strutmasters. Work GREAT and I have no more air suspension problems. Rides just as good too. You can't tell the difference.
