Sounds like the seals may have failed in the air shocks themselves. I also think you may have a bleeder valve problem. Follow the lines back and check the bleeder valve to see if it is leaking when you have someone else turn the vehicle on.

I would recommend going to and taking a look at there 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. Airbags and compressors are constantly having to be replaced. Also something alot of people don't know is that theses air suspensions are not meant to be in temperatures above 90 Degrees or below 40 Degrees. That is most of the world. The temperature will cause you to replace alot of bags. and typically when your replacing a bag you are going to have to replace the compressor to because the bag had a hole or small crack in it causing the compressor to over work and it will die. I posted the link below so you can take a look I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!!

I have a 2006 lincoln navgator why in the front does it keep going down

The Navigator has an air ride (air bag) suspension system. It uses a compressor and air bags in the suspension to provide a smooth and level ride. These systems are fairly reliable, but can malfunction due to misuse or parts failure. A common problem with these is that you must turn off the air ride system before raising the vehicle on jacks or a lift. This is because the weight of the vehicle provides a feedback pressure to the compressor to allow it to determine proper level and shutoff point. If the vehicle's weight is removed from the suspension with the air ride on, the compressor can over-inflate the air bags and cause them to blow out and fail. Other things that can happen are leaking air hoses, o-rings, seals and such.

My horn on my 1994 Ford Taurus doesn't work and the fuse is fine I just reconnected the wire that connects the two small horns but it still won't work.can u give me an idea on how to fix it

Check the horn relay and for voltage at the horn. If you are getting voltage to the horn, then the it could be that the horns themselves are bad.

Ford 2001F250 Air bag light is flashing all the time

You have a problem or fault with your airbag system and the system would not work if you had a accident. Working on that system incorrectly could cause the airbag to inflate. Take your truck to the dealer or professional garage.

I have a 1999 Lincoln town car limousine. Sometimes the rear air suspension will drop down after being parked for awhile. But, sometimes it doesn't. While driving with no one in the car the suspension...

Yes, There are leveling sensors under the car. You really have 2 separate problems though.

There is a Master venting valve usually under the drivers front fender. It bleeds the air out of the system. It is suppose to bleed out enough to level the car and not allow the rear end to dip.

The doorjam switches and the trunklid switch are part of the system. If these switches send an "open" signal, the rear bags will not inflate. Conversely the switches must work to tell the car to lower when a door or trunklid is open.

Because of the stretch of the car or LIFTING THE CAR without deactivating the sensor switch in the trunk, the leveling sensor can be unseated or damaged. It is normal for the suspension to raise to compensate for added passenger weight. It will not raise until the doors are closed as well as the trunklid.

It sounds like the master venting solenoid may be bad and working intermittently before failing altogether. You can soap water test the bags and the lines for leaks.

Remember to watch your tire rating. Load classes go by Alphabet letters with a "D" having more capacity than a "C" and an "E" having more capacity than a "D". Tire inflation is directly related to carrying capacity. It is stated on the sidewall of your tires. What I am trying clumsily to say is that you can not let your rear tires bulge out with heavy passengers and then try to let the Air-Ride jack up the car to compensate.

I use an SUV style tire on my lighter car. Your Lincoln is heavy to begin with, but with added passengers or a "stretch" the weight goes beyond the stock tires' capability to handle the load.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Air bags suspension won't inflat. Checked all fuses & air suspension switch. What can the problem be?

Probably failed seal or air bag leaking air. Check again and try to see if this will do the trick. Sometimes pvc line could fail to deliver air to the bag too!

My licoln navigator front suspension is not working..stays deflated

First, you should have a warning light telling you it is not working. There is a switch for the air suspension underneath the glovebox-right hand side or in the rear hatch area on the left panel..make sure it's on. If all 4 air bags are deflated it could mean the air pump or actuator is malfunctioning.
