SOURCE: I PUT BIGGER WHEELS ON

all u have to do is what we call fooling the system.first locate the off switch for the air suspension and turn it off.its usually in the trunk on on either side ,its not hard to find. then turn the key forward as far as it will go without starting the engine.get a couple friends and get in the trunk be still and quiet then switch the switch on and listen for the compressor to come on,its located behind the driver head light so listen in that direction.once the compressor comes on wait...then when it stops turn the switch off and leave it off and everyone get out and it will have lifted as much as 7 and half inches.now if its to high just turn the key foward go back to the switch and turn it on and the car will start decending slowly but pay attention because you wanna turn the switch off about a quarter inch higher than you want it because it will settle a little after sitting or driving.i have a 94 lincoln with 8 12 inch subs thats lowered with the original airbags and i also have a 2001 lincoln lifted 8 inches with 26s using the original bags once again.[a little tip:rub down your bags with motor oil while fully inflated then wipe dry this will add around 2 to 5 years to the bags.MAKE SURE YOU wipe ALL excess oil off everything if not sand will stick and make holes quick. it is really worth it though.

SOURCE: Lincoln Towncar 1999 turns over great. Has a new

check the spark plugs to see if they are getting any spark-pull one of the plugs, reconnect the wire, and hold near something metal on the car while someone turns the engine over-if no spark-it's electrical-maybe just the plugs-maybe something more serious

SOURCE: Oil leak near Oil Sensor of 1990 Lincoln Towncar.

The wires are attached to the oil sensor with a small clip. Disconnect the wire from the oil sending unit by simply pulling it off the unit. Use a deep socket (1 1/16) to remove unit.

Testimonial: "Got the wire off. Looks like a special socket to get the sensor off. Thanks for the fast response"

SOURCE: what is the part called right above my break pedal

It is a BOO, Brake On Off switch. Most part stores just call it a brake light switch. If you have one switch on the pedal and you have cruise control, the switch does both jobs. Most cars have two switches though, one for cruise and the other for the brake lights. The one for the brake lights is usually just two wires.

Its a weight sensitive sensor, so you would probably have to come up with some sort of resistor. I doubt you can bypass it.
