I have a problem with my 95 Lincoln Town car, it's been blowing out it's alternator fuse and the air suspension light kept flashing. I've changed the fuses twice so far but was wondering what might be causing this problem. Any insight?

Check the charging system and check it while the car and engine are hot. The alternator is starting to fail when hot. If the engine is not hot the failure will not show up. And yes I have seen this happen on many cars of all types. A lot of mechanics forget that the problem may not show up till car and alternator are hot.
If its killing it self off blowing up the suspension have you checked it for leaks seeing if its just constantly blowing through a hole. Being a limousine owner my self I know if you have to much running at once such as both ACs, Music, lighting etc it does get rather upset when you ask it to power so much at once.
A couple of things you can do. Find a salvage yard that carries FORD/Lincoln products. You may able to get a fuse cover from them. Also, you can, although time consuming, take out each fuse and do a visual inspection of it. When you find the blown one, it should be obvious to see. Another option (my choice), get a fuse tester from an auto parts store (some times, they come in a Fuse Kit with new fuse's) Get one that has adjustable tip width? Meaning, you can slide a button on the tester and move the electrode tips closer or farther apart to work on different size fuse's. On the top of every fuse is open contact points so a tester can be used. Touch the tester to each fuse in the box until the tester 'lights ups' indicating this is the blown fuse. (tester will not light up on a good fuse) replace the fuse with one EXACTLY the same size/rating. This should do it. Note; if the fuse blows again, this means, most likely, that the air compressor needs to be replaced.
if you're talking about a 94 town car, it's under the hood in the 'engine compartment fuse box' my book says fuse "U" is air suspension. Also beside the fuses are four relays. the second one down is 'air suspension relay'. hope this helps.good luck.if i fixed ya please rate me. thanks
I have a 93 lincoln town car and the battery kept dying on me and I found out it was the air ride suspension and the way to test this is to turn off the switch inside the trunk on the passenger side near the top and if this helps with the problem then it is the air ride suspension
