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!!!!

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.

You need a compressor that will put out 200 psi. Here is a new one on ebay for $212 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1998-1999-2000-Lincoln-Navigator-Air-Ride-Compressor-/230481832909?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item35a9c9abcd#ht_1913wt_1167 Here is a used one for $119.50 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1998-1999-2000-LINCOLN-TOWN-CAR-AIR-RIDE-COMPRESSOR- /170491628713? cmd=ViewItem&pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item27b217cca9#ht_3365wt_941 Another option is to convert the system to springs and shocks. The conversion kit will cost $327. http://www.strutmasters.com/Lincoln-Town-Car-Air-Suspension-Conversion-Kit-p/-ltc-r2s-4.htm

Testimonial: "I am a first time user.Thank you for your quick response and for providing pricing and location/s for part.I will definitely recommend this service. Thanks once again. John"
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.
