Question about 1999 Lincoln Navigator

1 Answer

Air suspension is not working

It seemed to go crazy for a while pumping up the back end then the front and now it's completely down on back and front. We used to hear the motor run just turning on the key switch but now it doesn't work. Where do I start after the fuse, 50Amp in not blown?

Where is the location of the air suspension compressor pump for the front suspension of a 2006 Bentley continental flying spur? Front end fails to rise.


It is in engine compartment. Follow small air tubes. Listen for buzzing sound. Pump may be out or you have an air leak

Anyone with a Mountaineer or Explorer should remove
the Factory Air Suspension, and replace with conventional
shocks/struts.

There are lots of companies with those products

I do not believe, even a dealer can resolve all the
issues,especially with the Mountaineer

When you go over 2 or 3 thousand dollars trying to keep
believing, you can get it to work,you will switch from
the air ride, and end what should have never been on
those vehicles in the first place.

Have a 2000 eddie bauer and the entire rear end is sitting low with the front remaining the same, this seems to be happening often, whats the solution


do you hear the pump running from under the back of the car? check fuses? is the suspension light on in the dash? this system is diagnosable with the right tester.have someone get the fault code from the suspension module. could be as easy as a sensor. was the car towed recently? flat beds ofter knock off the sensors when car gets tied down. my air suspension went out on me. And the dealers price was too expensive and i went to Strutmasters.com and bought a conversion kit that eliminated the air and has a lifetime warranty so now i don't have to worry about it ever again. Prior to jacking or lifting a vehicle with air suspension, you must turn off the suspension switch. find the reset switch auto parts store will tell you where its at

Troubleshooting Suspension failure 2000 Lincoln Navigator


I have owned several air suspension vehicles. My Expedition was similar to yours. You may want to try the 4x4 switch because it will raise the body 1-2 inches higher. Checking its fuse would not hurt.

On most of my vehicles the suspension would work end to end, raising the front first. You could have 2 issues with the suspension. There should be valving to switch the air to the rear suspension after the front is up. I would wait longer for the rear to catch up.

If I had to guess why the front lifts first it would be to get the front off of the curbs and sidewalks when you park so the bottom doesn't drag.

There is a diagnostic plug for the air suspension and sometimes Autozone or Oreillys have the scanner for that special plug. If not, some alignment shops and all dealers would have it. Also Ford parts are often the same as Lincoln and cheaper., Someone may make aftermarket parts at a better price.

The rear suspension is down on my 1999 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer. The cause: while out in the woods I came across a small dip which cause my back left wheel to lift off the ground. The suspension...


I had a 1999 Expedition. When you put the 4x4 on it raises the vehicle an extra inch or 2.
It may help to turn the 4x4 off. Two wheel drive is a lower air setting.
Your original pump may still be good. The problem can be in the front. The compressor is not filling the front suspension to the cutoff point. It will lift the rear after the front end is at running height. Since you lost the front end first, the remaining air bled out there and then the rear came down. Once you shut down the car the suspension was done, all the air was let go.
There are adjustment solenoids on the body but you need someone qualified to repair this.

Rear air suspension holding air not venting, staying up to high


The air suspension uses the same vent solenoid to vent front so that will be ok. The problem will either be the rear height sensor which mounts on/near left side of rear axle. Or the air suspension module itself.
I would suspect it is the rear height sensor,the link may have come unhooked or it may be sticking or just bad.
