Question about 1995 Lincoln Town Car
When i got the car the air ride acted like it was working but the check air suspension light would come on and go off and some time it would blow the fuse this morrning i went somewere now the light is on will not go off and stay off the Rear air suspension is down its not all the way down but all most sometimes you could here the air compessor for Rear air suspension working but now it's not coming on pluss the ABS light is on someone please help this is my only ride
There is a way to permanately fix the solution to air ride suspension- get rid of them. Go online and there are several companies selling parts to replace everything you need- or do the smart thing and take them out and replace them with lifetime shocks. You can convert your car for a fraction of the price and never have to deal with them again.
I am sooo glad I did it on my car. It rides just as smooth too. Also, you don't have to worry about eroding boots, failing compressors/pumps, etc.
Suncore Industries is who I used and the things have been champ for 3 years running. And for only $249.00. No I don't work there!

It sounds to me like your compressor got killed. What probably happened is that the airbag got a hole or tiny crack in it so the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag killed the compressor. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. I added the link below so you can check it out.

If you ask your local lowrider shop, they will know the name of this place, I have forgotten. But there is a company that makes all the parts you could need to fix that whole system. From airbags to hoses, to valves and pumps. But be warned. It aint cheap to fix one. And there's usually more than one little thing wrong, plus the leaks at the hose fittings, it can turn into a money pit and a nightmare. That's why those cars are going for so cheap. They sit too low, and bounce around, and there's not an affordable fix. I'm talking hundreds of dollars just to get started. But, it can be fixed. I've had 'em work right for less than a thousand bucks, but don't count on it. Make sure your system is worth saving, if it's too far gone, just forget it. TT

Go to autozone and get yourself a pair of coilsprings. last longer and only cost $60.00 for the pair. I did it to my 94 and 95 lincoln town cars. They are easy to install to.

Fuses blow because of excessive load. Its probably the pump.
I'm an electrician, but I did complete the Ford factory training Associate's course and worked at a dealer for several years.
Just for the heck of it, find the pump and make sure the connections are good, theres no loose or frated wires, and the ground is tight. Also make sure your battery terminals are tight and clean (take negative OFF FIRST and put negative ON LAST or the battery will spark.
Do not put in a higher amp fuse (make sure its the correct size, and you arent just replacing what might be in there as a mistaken lower value.
I cant remember if that year had a diagnostic plug in the rear of the car (in the trunk). My 94 Mark VIII has one.
Bags are $400 and struts are $190 from a dealership. You CAN replace the entire assembly with the same year Thunderbird parts for a lot less, but you'll not have the air ride, and your warning light will be on all the time (and error in your message center until you hit RESET). My bags in each of my 94 Lincolns still hold air but at 16 years, I worry.
