Question about 2000 Lincoln Navigator
My check suspension light came on yesterday and I don't hear the compressor starting at all when I start, stop or put the truck in a gear. I checked the on/off switch and it is on. Is there a fuse that might have blown and if so where would it be located on the truck. The compressor just stopped all of a sudden no lead noises or faulty sounds.
It sounds to me like your compressor got killed. What probably happened is that the airbag got a hole or tiny crack in it so the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag killed the compressor. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. I added the link below so you can check it out.

First thing to check is the fuse inside the engine compartment. Don't remember which one it is but your manual will tell you. Next check the relay under the passenger front bumper. You can use a wire to jump the relay plug, but don't let it go more than a few seconds if the compressor kicks. If these don''t work, convert your system to coils. It's an easy and cheap fix at about $250 for parts (2wd) and about 3 hours of your time. You will never have air suspensikon problems again. The cost to fix the air suspension at the dealer is ridiclious, way more than converting. Good luck.

The fuse box is usually under the dash by your brake peddle, it may be a fuse, but these are known to go bad.

Look under passenger side dash for an on off switch and make sure its on

There are level control sensors they look like little arms (with joints like your elbows) mountesd on lower control arms. They may be at fault they control the height and turn the pump off when the height is reached. try adjust height first before you replace, they can be adjusted. Good Luck

those airbag suspension systems are junk. you are going to spend more than the value of the car fixing it and then it will just go bad again in a few years.
take a look at this site, permanent fix for the whole system.

well you won't like this, but if you scroll through all the questions left here you can count about 1 in 25 is a problem with a collapsed air suspension system in a luxury car. there is no real fix, after about 5 years it just keeps getting worse and one part after another fails. you quickly have more invested in repairing it than it is worth.
The only way to be done with it once and for all is to pay someone to tear out the whole system and replace it with a coil spring and shock system. several folks sell kits, they ain't cheap. take a look at www.strutmasters.com for a kit for your car. Then do not ever buy another air system car, even if it is a land rover or BMW as you will just have the same problems again.

The buzzing is probably the compressor. You may have a bad air line somewhere. Or, you may have a bad solenoid. These can be check with an ohmmeter.
