I have the same issue. Mine is a leak in the air suspension. The first thing to do is go to your under hood fuse box (the one with the oversized fuses) The fuse will be a 30 amp (large green) fuse. If the fuse is blown just go to Pep Boys,Kragen,or Autozone and they are less than $3.00. If this fixes it the air suspension will fill up within a couple of minutes (with car running) Usually these fuses will blow when you have a leak and the small compressor that fills your suspension gets overworked causing the fuse to blow. If that is the case with your vehicle keep a couple extra fuses handy until you get the car serviced. The only time you should flip the switch to the off position is when you are raising the car on a jack. Make sure the switch is flipped on when you replace the fuse.

Air suspension will not deflate


You need to find someone with a scan tool that can access the air suspension and manually cycle the individual springs to restore level. As a word of advise, turn the air suspension switch off, before you hoist the vehicle. This will prevent the compressor from inadvertently filling the air springs.

My rear air bags are too high and will not deflate. The sensor is connectod ok on the rear arm. How can I deflate it manually. It is on a 1994 mark VIII


you can remove the rear lines at the air bags to deflate. most likely the problem is the air suspension control module is not turning the venting valve on to release the air from the bags.

2000 navigator: sit higher on one side than the other.


the air ride suspension has level sensors under the vehicle, one of the sensors must be bad making the truck deflate the airbag or inflate it too much. you may need to have someone with a scan tool to access the air suspension module and check for fault codes. you can try turning the air suspension switch off for about an hour to see if the system will reset. the switch is located under the dash on the right side kick panel.

Air suspension light


The air ride suspension light turns on when for whatever reason the air ride suspention is NOT on. So, either the suspension switch in the trunk is turned off, or you have a problem with your air ride suspension. I ran into the same thing last week. When I checked the switch in the trunk, sure enough it was switched on. I flipped the switch off, turned the car on and then flipped the switch in the trunk to on position. It has been fine ever since. Give it a try. GOOD LUCK.

I just purchased a 1997 lincoln continental and the rear suspension deflates at night but when it is started in the morning,it reflates. Is this normal?


it should deflates only at trim height and shld stay at that level considering that there is no leak on the rear air suspension. Most probably leaking rear air suspension is the problem. The system works up to 45 minutes only after ignition off and will maintain the trim height

My back air suspension is not working.


First, check to make sure the air pump switch is "on" and nott turned off due to a tire change or other suspension work. Look in your owner manual for the location in the trunk.
Did you just have repair work done?
Also, check fuses & relays. Info in owner manual.
Let us know what you find so we can help.

Basically, this system has rubber air bladders that have lines running from an electric pump that inflates or deflates the air bags (springs). There is a small computer box that reads a height sensor in the rear, It will add air if too low, and let air out if too high.

Is yours fully deflated?

Where are the leveling sensors located on a 2003 Navigator?


There is one at each wheel. here is some info

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
s3j~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif 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.
s3j~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif 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.
