Question about 1991 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Check air suspension dash light comes on

I have a 1991 lincoln towncar. The air pump is working but after a few minutes the pump turns off and the warning light comes on. On cold freezing nights, the next morning the car will lose all air to the rear bags. This has happen maybe 2 out of 8 times. When I took the pump out and removed the dryer. Rusty water would come out of the dryer. Could it be that the condensation in the dry is freezing and the air can't pass through to the air lines? The dash light does come on even if it is warm outside. Is there a restriction in the Dryer? Or is there something else along the airlines that could be restricting the air flow?

I would suggest replacing the drier as it sounds like its had enough.

The Venting is controlled by two Solonoids*sp that open to let the air in or out depending what its being told to, otherwise its just from drier to the bags.

If there leaking the fast you may need to replace them, there not ment to last forever.

If your pumping the suspension from flat after it goes down it can cause damage to the bags repumping them full as its alot of strain on them.

96 grand marquis...air suspension light stays on all the time...system seems to work fine otherwise...


If everything is working fine, then you need to decide if it is worth the time and expense of repairing the circuit that leaves the light on when it should be off. I would leave it alone and if the lamp bothers you that much you can remove it or cover it with a piece of black tape.

Hard steering


You need the sensitivity switch to work to get more assist at lower speeds. Some slight changes in suspension geometry can occur if the Ride height is below standards.

Your best plan would be to take it in for a front end alignment where all components are inspected before any adjustments are made. Air the tires up to recommended pressure-cold temperatures can cause a drop in pressure.

I have a 1995 Town Car Signature Series. The rear


Sadly, there is no way to turn the light off. I had the air suspension on my Lincoln replaced with the spring kit, and the light is still on. I had a friend take the instrument panel apart and place a small piece of electrical tape over the "check suspension" light. Also, be certain to turn the air suspension pump switch off. It is located in the trunk on the right side.

Check engine light , check suspension


My towncar is doing the same. It actually started about 6 months ago with the fuel light, which turned out to be no problem, just some air in the line. My air bags did go out last week, so it looks like I have a low rider right now:) I'm in the process of converting from air bags to springs. I had the back airbags replaced but then the dang compressor went out and I don't have the money to replace that. The check air suspension light will stay on right before you have to replace the airbags. Turn your car off then on and if it takes a little while for the light to come back on you have a few weeks to go before it goes out completely. Oh and it is a real easy fix. Its gonna cost about 200 bucks for each airbag, but if you convert it to spring it will cost about 150 in parts.

Air Suspension system Problem 1990 Lincoln Towncar


Unplugging the Connector will cause the Check Suspension light to come on as its listed as a fault as it cant run.

But with it unplugged the compressor shouldnt been able to start. If you want to kill the compressor pull its relay from the engine bay. located above the battery.

But i'd suggest correcting the fault as if those bags do pop your going to end up being grounded. as the rear will drop a fair bit!
