This is a very common problem with all Lincolns. The air ride suspension are marketed as a luxury-comfort item but most do not know that they have a 100% failure rate and are designed to fail as shortly after the warranty expires as possible. The air bags that support the weight of the vehicle are not designed to withstand temperatures below 40 degrees or above 94 degrees and are very prone to dry rot. Once the bags start getting tiny cracks and leaks they start overworking the compressor. (Picture trying to blow up a balloon with holes in it.. you will try for as long as you can but will ultimately have to give up) These air ride systems can be very difficult to accurately diagnose the first time and consequently very expensive. Most people seem to be converting to a passive suspension system these days as the ride quality is too similiar to notice a difference and the reliability is paramount. http://www.strutmasters.com offers a high quality conversion kit that utilizes powder coated American steel coil springs that are actually designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle. http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm there is a direct link to the Lincoln page. I hope this helps save some of you a little bit of grief and a lot of money in the long run!!

Sounds like the compressor isnt getting power nor told to do so.
My first step to try for power is to go to the engine bay, Go to the fuse box above the engine and swap the Horn relay for the one in air suspension and try using the horn. If the horn doesnt work theres your problem!
Next step if above fails. Is to check for any blown fuses and replace as needed then retry.
The air suspension also has a height sensor on it, If that has failed the car wouldnt work out where it was and wouldnt adjust. also there is a Air Suspension/Evo Steering Module which controls the system but if there was a problem with this i belive you would also loose power steering.

Those Lincolns are notorious for that,I'd just get a set of coil springs out of a Crown Victoria cop car(junk yard)and swap them out.Done it many times,you can do it in about an hour,and they'll never leak down again.By the way,there's some O-rings in that system.Make some soapy water and spray every connection,just maybe you'll get lucky.

On the Right Kick Panel Fuse/Relay Box check fuses 11 10A, 20 30A, 27 5A and 111 50A. Check that the Air Suspension Service Switch is turned ON, check the two Front Height Sensors, wire Red/Blk is the power to the sensors and should be hot as soon as the Ignition Key is turned ON, if the sensor feels the suspension is Low, sends a signal to the Air Suspension Module which turns the compressor ON to level the vehicle.
If the fuses are OK, and the sensors receive power, the module could be faulty.
If the system is airtight, applying 12+ to the GRY/RED and ground the LT GRN/RED (it should be grounded already) will start the compressor and level the vehicle. The PINK wire is the ON/OFF signal coming from the module. If vehicle is below proper level, it should be hot.
THERE IS A KIT THAT U CAN PURCHASE FROM KRAGEN TO REPLACE THE AIR BAG SYSTEM, ITS A REALLY GOOD KIT COMES WITH REAR COILS AND FRONT AND REAR SHOCKS , TRUCK SEEMS TO RIDE A LOT BETTER THAN WITH THE AIR BAGS < AND U DONT HAVE TO DEAL WITH ALL THAT AIR BAG PROBLEMS < IVE USED THEM LOTS OF TIMES AND CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS HAPPY WITH VECHICLE RIDE
Good Luck! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!
