SOURCE: REAR AIR BAG SUSPENION

I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at there 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. Airbags and compressors are constantly having to be replaced. Also something alot of people don't know is that theses air suspensions are not meant to be in temperatures above 90 Degrees or below 40 Degrees. That is most of the world. The temperature will cause you to replace alot of bags. and typically when your replacing a bag you are going to have to replace the compressor to because the bag had a hole or small crack in it causing the compressor to over work and it will die. I posted the link below so you can take a look http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!!

SOURCE: replaced front bags with shocks and the rear bags will not fill

It sounds to me like you have a hole or cracks in your airbag. The dealership typically diagnoses it as the compressor but that is only to keep you coming back and wasting more money on something that will never truly be fixed. The airbag is the problem now but the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag will kill 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. This is a PERMANENT fix. I added the link below so you can check it out.

SOURCE: i installed new airbags, changed a bad fuse under

Under the hood in the powerbox you probably changed the fourth fuse slot from the left. My book shows slots 1,2,3 open depending on options. Looks to be a green fuse.

The Airpump relay is also in that box. The second relay from the right is the Airpump relay. If the fuse was blown, your relay may also be bad.

There is an additional fuse #7 which supplies Battery voltage when the Ignition is on. It is a light blue and pink wire and may be in the interior fuse panel.

There are some other things which may be problems. Doorjam switches showing they are open when they are not. The vent solenoid may be defective. Browser search for lincoln vent solenoid testing for more info.

I hope you found my solution helpful.

I cant find where the air suspension sytem is on my 1996 ford crown vistoria. The air bags on the rear tires will not inflate


make sure its turned on, the switch is in the trunk. The compressor is in RF area ahead of RF tire, the fuse which may be blown is in the fuse box at RF wheel under the hood. if the fuse is blown, its because the compressor has run too long trying to pump up the air bags which are leaking. it may need the bags and compressor, there are several companies that make springs for the rear to replace the bags.

The compressor quit is there a place to manually inflate the air bags until i get the replacement compressor


You will probably be able to find an air inflation port mounted on the rear axle near where the bags are mounted. Make sure the kill switch for the bags has not failed keeping power from going to the compressor.

Save your self the hassle and expence of troubleshooting and replacement parts, install a suspension retrofit kit which changes the rear bags to coil springs and the front to struts. A car this old you might as well start over for less than $500.00......

REAR AIR BAG SUSPENION


Hello;
The inflatrion air valves have probably gone bad. You can buy the valves seperate from the air bags but make sure your bags are in good shape. The air valves come (or did) with the new air bags. May be time to replace the rears with new. Hope this helps, please rate me high;
