Question about 1995 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

I had a door ajar error code and a check ride control error code on dash, i sprayed wd-40 and it took away the door ajar code but the check ride control still exists! I dont know the problem i checked the fuses and the switch in the trunk is on! If you turn the switch from off to on and so forth there is no reaction to the flipping of the switch. I inspected the bags in the rear and they look perfect and there is no sound of a leak anywhere. I just have no idea why the pump is not staying on?!?!

SOURCE: no air reaching air bags/compressor does not come on when car turned on

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!!

SOURCE: Air compressor for air suspension on 1994 Lincoln Town car.

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.

SOURCE: just had car dealership repair 1997 lincoln town air ride

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.

hI!
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!!

What can I do to get door ajar light to go off on a2005 4 door vibe


The door ajar sensing switch is incorporated into the door lock assembly inside the door. Which door is causing the problem will be the question. In most cases it will be the drivers door as it is used most frequently. I have had some success spraying WD-40 into the lock assembly of the door and opening/closing it several times. This has worked on some makes and models. Others have needed switch replacements. Try the WD-40 spraying liberally on all lock assemblies and hope for the best

Interoir lights stay on after truck shut off. 2002 Ford F-150 Super Cab. any hints on what to look foe?


If the interior lamps and the door ajar light stay on after removing the keys and closing the door, this is usually a sign that the door ajar switch is gummed up.

Liberal spraying of WD-40 in the latch and close open the door a few times. It can take up to 5 cycles of this to get the door ajar latch working correctly again.

There is a thread on F150online.com in the electrical forum ( sticky at the top ) that has pictures of where to spray the WD-40 if you are unsure on this.

The door ajar light stays on all the time. I tried to push in on the doors, but nothing works. Please help me John M


this is caused by the door ajar switch sticking. easiest and cheapest way to fix this is to spray a generous amount of wd-40/enforcer/pb blaster or like spray chemical into all the door latches. this will free up the sticking switch. spray it into all your door latches since we dont know which switch is sticking and spray a lot of wd-40 onto them

Just bought a used 2004 Excursion and the interior lights stay on until the battery wears down. would that be a bad roller switch for interior lights and dash lights?


Well, the lights on our 1998 Ford Taurus stay on for a 'limited' amount of time, say 20 minutes and automatically turn off, even if the door is left open or if the glove box light is left on due to a door left open.

I wonder if your body control computer is faulty in your 2004 Excursion?
Or, if the body control computer is fine, and it doesn't have this feature, then I would see if the door latch switch needs to have wd-40 sprayed on it.

We have a 1999 Ford Expeditioin that had this problem with the door open light going on when the door was actually closed. The tech sprayed wd-40 on the locking mechanism and the problem went away.

Dome light and outside mirror lights stay on


if your door ajar light stays on, spray some wd-40 into the latch and work it a few times. the sensors tend to get stuck and a little wd-40 (or other lubricant) frees it up pretty good. A simpler check would be to make sure that the over head lights are turned off on the dash!!!

97 Lincoln Contiental drivers door ajar message stays on what can i do? Can I remove the door jam sensors or door ajar warning relay? If I can where exactly are the located


It is a sticky sensor in the door latch mechanism. Spray it w/ WD-40 and follow up with a dose of silicone spray. Open/close doors several times and it should be ok. If you have a problem with 1 door the other 3 are sure to follow---DO THIS TO ALL 4 DOORS!!!!!!!!!
