Question about 2007 Lincoln Continental
I recently had all the suspension bags replaced, but within a couple weeks after a solenoid malfunctioned and activated the pump but would not let the air back out, after it raised the car up ridiculously high i unplugged the pump to keep from blowing the new bags, but it was still too late for the pump, it quit working, i am guessing it burnt up. i replaced the pump with a good used one, and after i turned on the key the pump released the air and lowered the car back down, but it let all the air out, and now the car is sitting on the ground, and the pump isn't coming on, i checked the high current fuse under the hood and the fuse under the dash, but they were good,i also tried flipping the switch on and off in the trunk, i can hear a couple clicks under the car but no pump. is there a safety switch that may have tripped when the car was too high? any suggestions would help, i am very frustrated because i don't know what to check next, and i cant drive the car so it has sat in my garage for the last 2 months, please help
Maybe the ajustment valve in the back disconnect itself when it was to high check in the rear of car if it not disconnect let me now pierre

SOURCE: AIR SUSPENSION DEFLATED!!
I have the same issue. Mine is a leak in the air suspension. The first thing to do is go to your under hood fuse box (the one with the oversized fuses) The fuse will be a 30 amp (large green) fuse. If the fuse is blown just go to Pep Boys,Kragen,or Autozone and they are less than $3.00. If this fixes it the air suspension will fill up within a couple of minutes (with car running) Usually these fuses will blow when you have a leak and the small compressor that fills your suspension gets overworked causing the fuse to blow. If that is the case with your vehicle keep a couple extra fuses handy until you get the car serviced. The only time you should flip the switch to the off position is when you are raising the car on a jack. Make sure the switch is flipped on when you replace the fuse.

I fought with the same issue on my 1997 Mark VIII a few years back, and it turned out that there was a clog in the air line (just a piece of dirt that looked like a tiny piece of the air line itself.
Could also be a loose or leaking air line, since the pump runs and stops at a fixed interval.Make sure that the system actually gains pressure. If not, start checking for an air leak!
Hope that's helpful!
