There are level control sensors they look like little arms (with joints like your elbows) mountesd on lower control arms. They may be at fault they control the height and turn the pump off when the height is reached. try adjust height first before you replace, they can be adjusted. Good Luck

Most likely have a leak in the front air system. Could be a line or one o the air bags. Could also be a missing or misadjusted ride height indicator.

Can not get the new air ride compressor to come on

Make sure the trunk switch is turned on. Your doorjam and trunk switches are wired into the Air-ride. They must sense the openings are closed before the lift compressor will work.

There are level controls for height. If the car was put on a lift without the switch being turned off, the positioner may be stretched beyond working.

10996 lincoln towncar rear suspension just dropped to the ground and i am not sure why i think it may be the air compressor please help

that could be anything from the compressor which is located in front of the driver side front wheel well. All the way back to the air springs themselves, generally if the rear suddenly drops you have a crack or even a hole in one or both of your air springs. If you do not address this immediately you will damage the compressor.

Where is the compressor for the air ride suspension on a 2000 lincoln town car? And is there a fuse for it?

It is located under the air cleaner box. the fuse is located with the relay in the fuse box under the hood, it is not marked but there should be info in the owners manual.

Air Suspension system Problem 1990 Lincoln Towncar

Unplugging the Connector will cause the Check Suspension light to come on as its listed as a fault as it cant run.

But with it unplugged the compressor shouldnt been able to start. If you want to kill the compressor pull its relay from the engine bay. located above the battery.

But i'd suggest correcting the fault as if those bags do pop your going to end up being grounded. as the rear will drop a fair bit!

Air suspension

Sounds like you have a hole or cracks in your airbag. This causes the compressor to work double time eventually killing the compressor as well. I would recommend going to and taking a look at the town car conversion kits. They convert you from air to powder coated, American made steel coil springs that are guaranteed to last the life of the car. I posted the link below so you can take a look.

Hopefully this will help you

92 lincoln towncar air bag light flashing

Air suspension is controlled by the compressor in your engine compartment.  The compressor runs when the suspension is not level.  Either because you have loaded the car with exceptional weight and the system is now adjusting the ride, or you have a leak in the system, or you have a bad sensor.
If you have a leak, the most likely culprit are the air suspension bags, the air suspension solenoids or possibly the lines to them.
Try these sites:

I don't work for either of them.  I own a 96 TC and have replaced my air suspension with coil springs form Strutmasters.  Work GREAT and I have no more air suspension problems.  Rides just as good too.  You can't tell the difference.

all u have to do is what we call fooling the system.first locate the off switch for the air suspension and turn it off.its usually in the trunk on on either side ,its not hard to find. then turn the key forward as far as it will go without starting the engine.get a couple friends and get in the trunk be still and quiet then switch the switch on and listen for the compressor to come on,its located behind the driver head light so listen in that direction.once the compressor comes on wait...then when it stops turn the switch off and leave it off and everyone get out and it will have lifted as much as 7 and half if its to high just turn the key foward go back to the switch and turn it on and the car will start decending slowly but pay attention because you wanna turn the switch off about a quarter inch higher than you want it because it will settle a little after sitting or driving.i have a 94 lincoln with 8 12 inch subs thats lowered with the original airbags and i also have a 2001 lincoln lifted 8 inches with 26s using the original bags once again.[a little tip:rub down your bags with motor oil while fully inflated then wipe dry this will add around 2 to 5 years to the bags.MAKE SURE YOU wipe ALL excess oil off everything if not sand will stick and make holes quick. it is really worth it though.
