    same problem air shocks have air going through line but will not raise

  • gerry bissi May 11, 2010

    the module is not opening the solenoids to let air into the air springs. Height sensors are supposed to tell module ride height and then make corrections.

    Door switches msut all be closed to process a down command.

If your motor is working but the car doesn't raise it means you have a leak in the air ride system you'll need to replace both (front or back).

I have a 96 Lincoln continental and there is one major issue with the car. The air suspension stopped working but not only that the driver door ajar is on also and,I have read on other forums that if the...

The door problem could be a faulty switch/sensor inside the door latch. If the suspension warning light is on there is a problem with that system too.
The system should maintain standard height even with the door open in most cases. It may not increase height if you load the car and the door is not closed.

Why won't rear end raise up ?

I have a 2000 Lincoln Town car, had the same problem, it was the rear air suspension/shocks. They are air bags basically that levels your car and it cost about $300.00 for each at the dealer for parts and install but it also has its own motor that inflates and deflates these air bags and I also had to replace that and that cost over $400.00 installed at the dealer.

I had my rear suspension fixed but noticed when I park the front end goes down only when parked. It raises when I start the vehicle.

I think this car has air assist ride. Settles at rest, raises at some speed or upon start. Based on my assumption and what you said you had done, I would speculate that the rear suspension air control was not incorporated into the system.

This is a question you should ask your mechanic. BTW - I am not a Lincoln mechanic.

Thanks for your question at

Can i put coil springs from a 1995 taurus onto a 1995 continental

No. they are different platforms and could result in a serious accident. they make conversion kits to eliminate the air ride suspension and are designed specifically for this particular car.

Air suspension is dead on the ground fuse is good will not raise?

Check the suspension switch on the trunk, I think is on the driver side, something should happen if you turn it on/off.

First, you may have leaks in your bags, causing your suspension to drop. The other possibility is that your rear suspension level sensor is faulty, causing the suspension to readjust itself incorrectly.

96 lincoln town car-air suspension fuse

A couple of things you can do. Find a salvage yard that carries FORD/Lincoln products. You may able to get a fuse cover from them. Also, you can, although time consuming, take out each fuse and do a visual inspection of it. When you find the blown one, it should be obvious to see. Another option (my choice), get a fuse tester from an auto parts store (some times, they come in a Fuse Kit with new fuse's) Get one that has adjustable tip width? Meaning, you can slide a button on the tester and move the electrode tips closer or farther apart to work on different size fuse's. On the top of every fuse is open contact points so a tester can be used. Touch the tester to each fuse in the box until the tester 'lights ups' indicating this is the blown fuse. (tester will not light up on a good fuse) replace the fuse with one EXACTLY the same size/rating. This should do it. Note; if the fuse blows again, this means, most likely, that the air compressor needs to be replaced.
