The air suspension has been disabled. There should be a switch in the trunk that turns it off and on. You may have possibly hit the switch with groceries etc if you were in the trunk lately. The suspension module may also have shut the system down if there is a leak in one of the air lines or airbags/shocks. You may have to take it to a shop for diagnosis.
The sensors that connect to the air bags are either malfunctioning or you do indeed have a slow leak. The rear sway stabilizers could be out and they are unrelated to the airbags. Unless you have replaced the airbags before, they are 15 years old and more than likely have cracking and tearing in the rubber boots. Autozone has twin Duralast coil springs with 4 rubber boots that replace the airbags for 100 bucks. They are the only place that has them this cheap and work as well as any high dollar replacements. They are just as smooth as airbags and more reliable.It could take three strong grown men to do it yourself ( that's what I did) unless you have a tall needle jack and a way to mount it to the rear end and under body to get the lift you need to set the coils in.
You should be able to use factory original airbags in your stretch limo, because of all the modifying is done in the middle/rear of the car, and the front part is still original, other than suspension upgrades.
No. The Lincoln Continental does not have air bags in the front. It is not exactly hard to convert the rear airbags to springs. It is more time consuming than anything. I have a 1996 Town Car, I had a mechanic replace the air shocks with springs.
The check engine light comes on with the key on, to let you know the bulb is good. Often, if a car has a problem, an unscrupulous seller will pull the bulb. The bulb is cheap, but often tricky to get at to swap. It would be important to get a good bulb installed, but then get your car scanned at a local auto parts store to see if any codes are stored..
