Question about 1997 Lincoln Town Car
I replaced rear air bags and the pump under windshield washer on my '93 towne car. I hear the pump on for 3 to 4 seconds and shuts off repeatedly for 2 minutes and then "check air compressor" light comes on. The bags don't fill to normal height.
HELP ME PLEASE!
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.
I hope I was of some help

Yes, sir, generally when the rear suspension air shocks go bad the compressor is soon to follow, as the bags develop leaks the pump runs more and more, it overheats, and soon the brushes and winding crash, also it has an internal switch to release extra air when their is to much, like when you have a couple of people in your back seat and they get out, one other thing, is the suspension sensor
connected to rear axle and body to determine height, If you have a way to read your air suspension codes it will tell you what is happening, but i believe your pump needs to be replaced. If this helps you, please vote me a fixya, if not please do not rate me at all. It only hurts my ratings, I try to help people for free, and only want a good rating in return, It's the holidays, and I don't always have time to answer back as normal, but if you have patience, I will follow up with any more help you need. Merry Christmas
i GOT a bad pump twice both were aftermarket, If you bought an original OEM one it has a warranty. !

I bought two compressors and some air bags for my Lincoln about a year ago. It wasn't long and the thing was back on the ground again. Instead of spending more money that I didn't have, I called Strutmasters. I saved so much money and made my husband happy too. :) I'm really liking the way my car rides and I'm glad I went to Strutmasters.
