That should not happen. Did you turn the switch off in the back for the suspension? Did you do something else at the same time, like check the spare tire for air pressure?

I have info on 2003 navigator 4 wheel air suspension. Maybe similar

SECTION 204-05: Vehicle Dynamic Suspension — 4-Wheel 2003 Expedition/Navigator Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Vehicle Dynamic Suspension The four wheel air suspension system is comprised of the following components:

  • service switch
  • control module
  • two front height sensors
  • one rear height sensor
  • compressor and drier assembly (includes vent solenoid)
  • air lines
  • front and rear air spring and shock absorber assemblies
  • four air spring solenoids
WARNING: The service switch for the air suspension system must be shut off prior to hoisting, jacking or towing an air suspension vehicle. This can be accomplished by turning off the air suspension switch located in the jack storage area in the rear of the passenger compartment. Failure to do so may result in unexpected inflation or deflation of the air springs which may result in shifting of the vehicle during these operations.

WARNING: Do not remove an air spring under any circumstances when there is pressure in the air spring. Do not remove any components supporting an air spring without either exhausting the air or providing support for the air spring to prevent vehicle damage or personal injury.

------------------------------
Principles of Operation
The 4-wheel air suspension (4WAS) module commands changes in vehicle height that are necessary for both the load leveling and the vertical height adjustment features.
The 4WAS load leveling feature automatically makes adjustments in vehicle height so that the vehicle is always at trim height, and that constant front-to-rear vehicle attitudes are maintained over the load range of the vehicle. Adjustments in height that are necessary to correct height differences between the vehicle left and right sides for the 4WAS system are restricted to what can be reliably achieved with three height sensors.
The height adjustment feature has three vehicle heights within a two-inch span:
Kneel height — improves the ease of entering and exiting by lowering the vehicle one inch below the trim height in the front and rear when the vehicle ignition is in the OFF or LOCK positions and the vehicle is stationary.
Trim height — normal vehicle ride position; vehicle moves to trim position when the ignition is ON, when the transmission is initially shifted to DRIVE or REVERSE mode, when all doors are closed or when speed of more than 24 km/h (15 mph) is detected.
Off-road height — improves ground clearance by raising the vehicle one inch above trim height in the front and rear when the vehicle is at 4x4 low modes and the vehicle speed is less than 40 km/h (25 mph).
The 4WAS module uses the universal bus protocol, (UBP), module communications network for sending and receiving various signals with the exception of speed, information from the three height sensors, and the air suspension service switch. For additional information about UBP, refer to Section 418-00 .
The 4WAS system holds vehicle height when any door or rear hatch is opened. The system stores front and rear vehicle height the moment any door is detected open. The system then maintains this height regardless of the addition or removal of a load. The system returns to its commanded height when all doors are closed or vehicle speed exceeds 24 km/h (15 mph).

-------------------------------
Air Suspension Service Switch
The air suspension service switch signal is needed to wake up the 4WAS module. Without the module receiving this signal, the 4WAS system is inoperative at speeds below 24 km/h (15 mph) and will not react when the vehicle is raised or lowered. At speeds above 24 km/h (15 mph), the system will be active as if the air suspension service switch is in the ON position.
Vehicles without message center When the air suspension service switch is in the OFF position and the ignition switch is in the RUN position, a "CHECK SUSP" will appear in the RH corner of the instrument cluster.
Vehicles with message center When the air suspension service switch is in the OFF position and the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the message center will display "SUSPENSION SWITCHED OFF"
-------------------------------------------
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern.
  1. NOTE: If the door ajar indicator is illuminated when all doors, liftgate, and liftgate glass are closed, the air suspension will not work correctly. Repair door ajar indicator; refer to Section 413-01 .
    Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.


Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Restricted suspension movement
  • Excessive vehicle load
  • Cut, severed, crimped air line(s)
  • Unmounted height sensor(s)
  • Damaged front air spring(s)
  • Damaged rear air spring(s)
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuses 20 (30A), fuse 27 (5A), and fuse 111 (50A)
  • Loose, corroded, or disconnected connectors
  • Air suspension service switch is in the OFF position
  • Damaged solenoid valve(s)

I fthis does not help, the dealer can hook up his diagnostic equipment and download fault codes. Good luck. Please give best rating if this helps.

It sounds to me like your airbags got holes in them and the compressor possibly died. I got a conversion kit for my Nav from strutmasters.com about 3 years ago and I havent had any problems with my suspension since. Hope this was of some help.

I agree with going to strutmasters or someone like that. I just replaced my air suspension system all the way around (front and rear) for $300. Each of those rediculous bags is $187. It took about a half hour each. If the bags have any air in them, drill a hole in them first. Also, it is essential to take off the tie rod in the front (this is easy, one bolt) After it drops down there is plenty of room. In the rear, drop the stabilizer arm...also one bolt and easy. Truck rides great now!

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. 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 http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!

We had a new battery put in our 1999 lincoln navigatior and the rear air suspence went down and we can not get it to to fill back up


Replace the entire Air Suspension with
conventional shock/struts such as Strutmasters
or other brands

You do not even diagnose a Navigators Air
Suspension after the vehicle is 5 years old
Dealers can't figure it out

Next time you get the Ford version.
Still issues but nowhere near anything
that is installed on a Navigator

A Navigator is like an Oldsmobile from
the 1970's & 1980's A test bed of poor choices,
bad engineering & ideas

There is some kind of pump on the rear drivers side near the spare tier what is it and why is it makeing a loud vib sond?


Your vehicle is apparently equipped with Automatic Level Control Suspension (ALC). The thing you hear running in the rear driver's side is the air compressor that pumps up your air suspension. It is normal for this to run occasionally. Sometimes they seem a little loud. That's why they mounted it all the way in the rear and used rubber bushings to secure it...so you won't hear it running while you are driving. If it is running too much, it can be a sign that your air suspension components have air leaks. If it seems to run constantly, you need to get your suspension system checked because the pump will burn itself up trying to keep the leaky suspension inflated. VERY common as well as VERY EXPENSIVE to fix if not taken care of promptly.

If it just runs for a minute or two and shuts off and doesn't come back on for a long time, don't worry about it - this is normal. It SHOULD run for a while if you have the ignition key turned on and you load something heavy in the back of the vehicle.

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.

Air Rise Suspension/computer module


my brother in law replaced the air springs on my '94 town car with rear coil springs from a '92 crown vic. He raised the rear tires off the ground and put jack stands on the frame for safety on both sides. Then disconnected the shocks at the lower end and removed the air springs.removed rear tires and used a piece of 2x4 to pry axle down to provide clearance to put coil springs in place. then hooked shocks back up and it worked fine. the only way the coil springs could come out is if the car was upside down and then who cares. This project only cost $ 25.00 Real cheap being we were broke!
