when you park the vehicle for the night slide a sheet of cardboard underneath. next day open the hood and sight down from a vertical position with the spot and inspect all components on that line of sight. it's not hot so it is alright to use your hands also.

SOURCE: Our 2005 Navigator is like

Anyone with a Mountaineer or Explorer should remove
the Factory Air Suspension, and replace with conventional

There are lots of companies with those products

I do not believe, even a dealer can resolve all the
issues,especially with the Mountaineer

When you go over 2 or 3 thousand dollars trying to keep
believing, you can get it to work,you will switch from
the air ride, and end what should have never been on
those vehicles in the first place.

You have an air leak. The compressor gets overheated and shuts down to protect itself. If you keep a door open, it will not process a dwon command. If it slowly drops with a door open, then you have a leak for sure. It would not be a sensor. Could be an air spring leak too.
SECTION 204-05: Vehicle Dynamic Suspension - 4-Wheel 2003 Expedition/Navigator Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Vehicle Dynamic Suspension The four wheel air suspension system is comprised of the following components:

  • service switch
  • control module
  • two front height sensors
  • one rear height sensor
  • compressor and drier assembly (includes vent solenoid)
  • air lines
  • front and rear air spring and shock absorber assemblies
  • four air spring solenoids
s3j~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: The service switch for the air suspension system must be shut off prior to hoisting, jacking or towing an air suspension vehicle. This can be accomplished by turning off the air suspension switch located in the jack storage area in the rear of the passenger compartment. Failure to do so may result in unexpected inflation or deflation of the air springs which may result in shifting of the vehicle during these operations.
s3j~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: Do not remove an air spring under any circumstances when there is pressure in the air spring. Do not remove any components supporting an air spring without either exhausting the air or providing support for the air spring to prevent vehicle damage or personal injury.

Item Part Number Description 1 5319 Air compressor and drier 2 5B322 Air line T-fitting 3 5B321 Air line union 4 - Air line Y-fitting 5 18945/5311 Air spring and solenoid
Principles of Operation
The 4-wheel air suspension (4WAS) module commands changes in vehicle height that are necessary for both the load leveling and the vertical height adjustment features.
The 4WAS load leveling feature automatically makes adjustments in vehicle height so that the vehicle is always at trim height, and that constant front-to-rear vehicle attitudes are maintained over the load range of the vehicle. Adjustments in height that are necessary to correct height differences between the vehicle left and right sides for the 4WAS system are restricted to what can be reliably achieved with three height sensors.
The height adjustment feature has three vehicle heights within a two-inch span:
Kneel height - improves the ease of entering and exiting by lowering the vehicle one inch below the trim height in the front and rear when the vehicle ignition is in the OFF or LOCK positions and the vehicle is stationary.
Trim height - normal vehicle ride position; vehicle moves to trim position when the ignition is ON, when the transmission is initially shifted to DRIVE or REVERSE mode, when all doors are closed or when speed of more than 24 km/h (15 mph) is detected.
Off-road height - improves ground clearance by raising the vehicle one inch above trim height in the front and rear when the vehicle is at 4x4 low modes and the vehicle speed is less than 40 km/h (25 mph).
The 4WAS module uses the universal bus protocol, (UBP), module communications network for sending and receiving various signals with the exception of speed, information from the three height sensors, and the air suspension service switch. For additional information about UBP, refer to Section 418-00 .
The 4WAS system holds vehicle height when any door or rear hatch is opened. The system stores front and rear vehicle height the moment any door is detected open. The system then maintains this height regardless of the addition or removal of a load. The system returns to its commanded height when all doors are closed or vehicle speed exceeds 24 km/h (15 mph).

dealer can run scan with their special tester and pull trouble codes that tell you what is wrong. DTC codes.
    1. If the concern remains after the inspection, use the scan tool connected to the data link connector (DLC) to retrieve continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and to execute On-Demand Self-Test diagnostics for the 4WAS module.
    2. If the On-Demand Self-Test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, GO to Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
    • If DTCs are retrieved, go to the 4WAS Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index in this section.
    • If the 4WAS module cannot be accessed by the scan tool, Go To Pinpoint Test A .

    My 2006 kia sedona xl has a vibration in the front suspension driver side. Tires have been balanced and rotated, brakes and rotors are brand new. Vibration has not gone away. We need more suggestions.

    Check for a bent rim. Rotate the left and right tires and see if the vibration moves to the passenger side.If not, you may need a front end alignment.

    My 2003 Chevrolet cavalier drivers side tire is ssmoking and water dripping in side my front passenger side what do this mean

    I\'ll treat the 2 problems separately, then as a unit. 1) Smoking tire. You have a really bad out of aligned tire. It scrubs the pavement and starts smoking. Have your rim and suspension on the corner checked at a quality shop. 2) Water inside passenger side. Do you smell antifreeze? This means your heater core or the hoses to it are leaking. If it\'s plain water and only leaks when raining your windshield seal is gone or the seal around your door. There is also spot and parts at the firewall where stuff can break and allow water t splash in. Now together. It sounds as though someone (you or someone else) drove your little car and "curbed" it really bad and has done significant damage to the front suspension and probably "racked" the body which would break the windshield seal. That is why I don\'t loan my car to anyone. The one and only time I did got broadsided. This was in 1973.

    I recently had a flat tire on the driver's front and we did not turn off the suspension swithch before we jacked it up. Now the passenger's front side is very low and the check air suspension light has...

    You may have bent a sensor. The 4 corners of your car each have an adjustible sensor. They can be adjusted, but it should be on an alignment rack or collision body repair floor.

    You car may be electrically confused and the sensor is now taking the jacked position as its base setting.
    Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10 minutes and see if the computer resets itself. Reattach cable and see what happens.

    Its a air suspension comprssor for a 93 lincoln mark 8 were on the car is it located

    The air suspension compressor is located on the passenger side of the car in front of the tire. To get to it, you must first lift the front tires off of the ground, remove the front passenger tire, and then remove the plastic skirt found behind the tire. After this is done it is easy to see the compressor which is found towards the front of the car, mounted just behind the skirt. I hope this helps
