Check your rear air springs see if they have any cracks if so the pump may be burned up since a leak will cause pump to run more thn normal and fry pump if no cracks in air springs the dealer might be the only help, also keep in mind you can replace air spring with regular coil springs (marquis,crown vic) and add some after market air shocks that you can fill with reg air compressor

If you can hear the pump running it is not the pump it is an air line coming from the pump or the air bags themselves call around and see if there is a salvage yard that has your type of car cause most of the air bag systems on most the lincolns are universal

2002 Buick rendezvous 3.4liter has an auxiliary air pump located in the rear. Push the on button it clicks but nothing. Also the air ride Dont seem to work. Is there a fuse or something I could try.


Well if the pump doesn't work then the air ride won't either as it is what pressurizes the system. I suggest you pull the air pump and test it to see if it runs.

Would a faulty height sensor cause the "check ride

I have a 1994 lincoln mark viii. the front air bags keep deflating and sometimes stay up. every now and then you can hear the pump and it makes weird noises and will not pump at all. its like i am driving...


Unfortunately, it sounds like the air compressor for your air ride system is not working. But before you replace make sure that the height sensors haven't gone out which would bleed deflate the bags. SunCore Industries has about the best prices for the air compressor, dryer and air struts and bags.

Changing them is no picnic, but there is plenty of information at SunCore on step by step instructions to do it.

I have a 96 Mark VIII and have had to replace the rear bags and two height sensors and the air compressor so far, but when they work as designed they are a very smooth ride. A friend went with the replacement non-air ride and there is a big difference in how it rides.

My 2006 Cadillac Escalade has a "service ride control" light on. Also, the air ride does not inflate. What could be causing it to not work?


Check the air ride's fuse first. You should hear the pump running when you turn the key on, the pump is under the body of the Escalade.

Air ride air comp not comming on new air pump


If everything else is working, the compressor and the air bags are good, and the lines are ok, then you might have a bad leveling switch. That what actually controls the compressor.

I have a 95 Lincoln Continental, the back end was way too high so I released the air in the bags. Now the only problem is that the pump can't lift up the car. Is there any ways to get air into the system...


located on the air suspension pump, there is a air fitting on top which you can inflate with an air hose, start the car and when the pump comes on, add air......it should stop pumping when the ride height sensor gets to the adjusted height....hope this helps....GL
