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

    Like your spirit! Go for it. System is restorable, but is older than its intended life span. So leaks and problems are going to be there. Better to not be scared as you said. THanks, 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.

Leval ride


Did the shop shut off you air suspension switch? How old are the air springs? take off the wheel and check around the bottom of the air spring for rot and cracks. Here is a link I just replace the whole air suspension for $300

I added air shocks to my 1995 lincoln town car because the air suspension bags died. what pressure should they take and do they lose air so you have to add air?


The Stock Air Bags self Leveled, your new System should have come with PAperwork or is there a Air Nozzle that you have to fill? The Bags should come with a Pressure Window for a Firmer Ride or Softer Ride.

Why won't rear end raise up ?


I have a 2000 Lincoln Town car, had the same problem, it was the rear air suspension/shocks. They are air bags basically that levels your car and it cost about $300.00 for each at the dealer for parts and install but it also has its own motor that inflates and deflates these air bags and I also had to replace that and that cost over $400.00 installed at the dealer.

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.

Save your self the hassle and expence of troubleshooting and replacement parts, install a suspension retrofit kit which changes the rear bags to coil springs and the front to struts. A car this old you might as well start over for less than $500.00......
