I have a 1992 Lincoln Mark VII and had to have a tire replaced, right after the suspension light came on and the front and rear of the car is now low like the frame is sitting on the tire. I read something about a compressor should have been turned off before the car was jacked up and this was not done, is this an easy fix?

There can be several reasons. The system will not activate unless all the door switches and the trunk switch indicate everything is closed. There are some fuses and Relays for the pump motor that can be checked. There is a cutoff switch in the trunk which is shut off for tire service and other things requiring lifting the vehicle.
Some of the better scanners can check the Air-lift system systems. You can call Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys to see if they have the better scanner to do this. Usually free at these brands.
CHECK AIR SPRINGS SOLENOID O- RINGS FOR LEAKS.LISTEN FOR AIR LEAKS AROUND EACH AIR SPRING. WHILE CAR ON GROUND. IF YOU SPOT A LEAK.TURN OFF AIR SUSPENSION OFF FIRST.THEN SAFELY RAISE VECHICLE.REPLACE ALL AIR SPRINGS SOLENOID O - RINGS BUT FIRST BLEED AIR OUT OF AIR SPRINGS FIRST BY REMOVING AIR SPRING SOLENOID CLIP THEN SLOWLY PULL AIR SPRING SOLENOID TO SECOND STOP DONT PULL ALL THE WAY OUT.TO SAFELY LOCK OUT VECHICLE REMOVE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE TO KEEP AIR COMPRESSOR FROM TURNING ON.YOU DONT WANT AIR IN SPRINGS WITH VECHICLE IN THE AIR. DONT TRY REMOVE AIR SPRING UNTIL ALL THE AIR IS OUT.YOU NEED A FORD TESTER TO DO A FUNCTIONAL TEST ON AIR SPRINGS.
The air suspension compressor is located on the passenger side of the car in front of the tire. To get to it, you must first lift the front tires off of the ground, remove the front passenger tire, and then remove the plastic skirt found behind the tire. After this is done it is easy to see the compressor which is found towards the front of the car, mounted just behind the skirt. I hope this helps
The compressor is next to the air box on the driver side under a plastic cover. One plug, two hoses and 3 bolts that hold it down. The hose on the top of the compressor is a quick release. Push in hose and hold red ring at bottom, and it should pull right out
go to strutmasters.com. thay offer air ride parts. but thay also offer a suspension conversion kit that does away with the costly air ride system. i have several customers that have converted thare vehicles with this kit and say thay cant tell the differance in ride and are verry satisfied
It is a faulty sensor. It is the black cyclinder with a boot on it that attaches to the back side of the lower control arm (look next to the brakes) Replace that and you will be golden. It might have water or a "dead" spot in the sensing coil
