SOURCE: rear air ride

are you kidding? if you cant nail it down to the compressor, the air lines, or the air shocks you shouldnt even be asking this question. Take it to a mechanic and save everyone from the headache that is you. oh, a good fix might be to smash the car.

SOURCE: 96 lincoln town car-air suspension fuse

A couple of things you can do. Find a salvage yard that carries FORD/Lincoln products. You may able to get a fuse cover from them. Also, you can, although time consuming, take out each fuse and do a visual inspection of it. When you find the blown one, it should be obvious to see. Another option (my choice), get a fuse tester from an auto parts store (some times, they come in a Fuse Kit with new fuse's) Get one that has adjustable tip width? Meaning, you can slide a button on the tester and move the electrode tips closer or farther apart to work on different size fuse's. On the top of every fuse is open contact points so a tester can be used. Touch the tester to each fuse in the box until the tester 'lights ups' indicating this is the blown fuse. (tester will not light up on a good fuse) replace the fuse with one EXACTLY the same size/rating. This should do it. Note; if the fuse blows again, this means, most likely, that the air compressor needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: just had car dealership repair 1997 lincoln town air ride

Those Lincolns are notorious for that,I'd just get a set of coil springs out of a Crown Victoria cop car(junk yard)and swap them out.Done it many times,you can do it in about an hour,and they'll never leak down again.By the way,there's some O-rings in that system.Make some soapy water and spray every connection,just maybe you'll get lucky.

Can i replace rear air suspension with shocks on 2000 town car


I have learned from experience. I replaced the air bag suspension ($75) on my 2000 Town Car and then learned that I had a problem with the compressor. Then decided to replace system with coil springs. Went on ebay and got a conversion kit (Air Ditcher) that included the shocks ($123) with free shipping. My mechanic replace the bags with the coils for $40. He said that with the shock replacement it would be $120 because the top of the rear shocks were hard to get to. So the whole job should have cost $163. No more worries!

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.

Air Ride Suspension on Rear won't air up


I had that problem with my ford fairlane (Australian Ford) there is a little compressor that pumps the air up when you turn the ignition on, it is located under the front right guard looking from inside the car.
I was told to remove the air shocks in the rear and replace them with air shocks that you pump up at the garage as the air line from the shocks go to a valve in the boot.
I did this and never had another problem with the rear suspension but I had heaps more problems with the car over a 4 year period and decided to sell it as it was never ending, I have never bought another ford since and never will
Hope this helps you

How to take rear shocks off of a 98 lincoln town car ?


Hello
You need a long reach 15mm or 17mm spanner, if you turn your air ride of jack the rear of the car look just over the rear wheel you will see the top of the shock, but if it turns then just cut the plastic cover on the shock & use mole grips to hold & turn the shock this should take about 25 mins to do the whole job both sides.
