First of all, you will find a circuit fuse or two in the fuse panel which should be under the dash on the left hand side of the steering column. But the main fuses will be found in the high-current fuse panel located in the engine compartment. The best way to check out what your problem (s) are is to take it in and have it tested, because you first need to perform three different diagnostic tests that can only be performed using special equipment. Or your problems could be the air lines themselves, the connector fittings for the lines, or leaks on your air spring/strut assemblies, air spring bags, air spring bag/canisters, canister connections, or mount connections, or the solenoid valves or valve connections. And that's not the end, but that should be enough for you to get the point. When my air ride system started going bad, I finally just replaced it with a conventional system instead, because of the cost to replace it, and that was me doing it myself. No labor costs. Even though it was a continental, it wasn't worth the cost to me. Good luck.

Some of the Vehicles with Air Suspension require the Pump to be shut off , before you lift the Wheels, off the Ground. The hissing noise indicates the bags ruptured and need replaced, at the very least. If there is an air suspension Cut-off, it is usually right front Kick Panel Location. If not you made need to pull a Fuse. Without a Manual, you are kind of hosed. Buy a Manual , for around $30, at the Local Parts Store.

The rear suspension is down on my 1999 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer. The cause: while out in the woods I came across a small dip which cause my back left wheel to lift off the ground. The suspension...

I had a 1999 Expedition. When you put the 4x4 on it raises the vehicle an extra inch or 2.
It may help to turn the 4x4 off. Two wheel drive is a lower air setting.
Your original pump may still be good. The problem can be in the front. The compressor is not filling the front suspension to the cutoff point. It will lift the rear after the front end is at running height. Since you lost the front end first, the remaining air bled out there and then the rear came down. Once you shut down the car the suspension was done, all the air was let go.
There are adjustment solenoids on the body but you need someone qualified to repair this.

Rear air suspension holding air not venting, staying up to high

The air suspension uses the same vent solenoid to vent front so that will be ok. The problem will either be the rear height sensor which mounts on/near left side of rear axle. Or the air suspension module itself.
I would suspect it is the rear height sensor,the link may have come unhooked or it may be sticking or just bad.

The air suspension controls the height of the car, First check if its turned on by opening up the boot/trunk and make sure this switch is turned to on.

If that is on do you have any light on the dash that says "CHECK AIRSUSPENSION" If that is the case its detecting a problem with the system and it wont do any venting/filling.

If the air suspension is pumping etc and operating like it should be you may have a problem with the Height sensor.

If you dont have Air Suspension no more your car has been converted to coils and they would bring the rear higher than the front.

Rear airsuspension problems for a 2000 lincoln towncar.

Usually the suspension pumps get weak and start to draw high current causing the fuse to pop. The pump is just below the air cleaner. This can be a costly repair at a dealer. If you go online you can find places that sell refurbished items. Here is one
