Question about 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII
Don't worry about the fuse. Keep in mind when you remove the sensors & solenoids and such, the system will detect that and immediately shut down the system. You want it to do that....you just don't want to hear about it. This is where you cut 1 wire. Go below for instructions:
Now, the area you'll be working in is the RF kick panel. First of all, lets make sure you've located the correct module. The air suspension module is behind & above the RF kickpanel. Then look for the black module with 2 connectors going into it. One connector is black, the other is gray.
The gray connector is the one you want. The wire your looking for to defeat the check suspension message is the Dark Green with a Light Green stripe(tracer) located in the gray connector. It is pin #12, circuit 419, on the gray connector.
Because there's allot of "spaghetti" up in there, the key to making this easy to do, is is to disconnect the gray connector by depressing the little center button, then giving that gray(light colored) connector a good yank to bring it closer to you for inspection. You should be able to see the wires a little better now.
The wire you're looking for is the DARK GREEN with a LIGHT GREEN STRIPE. If you're still unsure if you have the correct bundle of wires, the wire color right next to it is Brown with a Pink stripe......and the wire on the other side(inside) is an Orange with a Light Blue stripe.
Simply cut the DARK GREEN with a LIGHT GREEN STRIPE wire and put some black tape around the end of the wire that's coming from the module to keep from shorting out. Now push & connect the connector back up in the module, making sure to hear or feel the "click" when the connector is locked.
Now, TURN ON the suspension switch in the trunk. If done correctly, you will never, ever have a suspension light again! Instructions how to do the complete conversion is available here.

It is under the hood in the fuse box near the battery drivers side I think. But why not just unplug the air pump motor at the pump module. Also there is a relay under the hood as well in the same box as the fuse.

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.

Could very well be faulty relay, bad fusible link, or a fuse in general. You can trace the wiring or view a free repair manual at autozone.com to trace wires to find faulty device. You can use an ohmmeter or multi-tester to test relays and fuses.
