Remove battery, remove windshield washer bottle, remove air compressor and disconnect both air lines from the compressor dryer. Make sure compressor electrical wiring is plugged in, install battery, turn suspension switch to ON, turn ignition switch to the ON position, close all door and the compressor should come on and completely lower the whole truck. Once the truck is completely down, turn the ignition OFF, remove battery and connect both air lines. Install battery ensure electrical wiring is plugged in, turn ignition switch to ON, the compressor should come on and raise the vehicle to the correct ride height.

If you have air ride failure on your navigator, the cost of repairs at the dealership will run into thousands of dollars. But you can convert back to standard shocks and struts with a conversion kit for a fraction of the cost. easy to install and you will never have another air ride problem.

I have a 2001 Lincoln Navigator. Today I heard a loud hiss come from under the hood. On the way home the Truck started to bounce really bad. When I got home my rear end was really low to the ground. I looked under the hood an hear air leaking but not from the compressor, is there a hose somewhere that I can tighten?

Should level itself out eventually. Your other option is to turn the system off, rejack the front end and try that. No guarantees, but it is worth a shot.

How do I know if the suspension control module is bad in a 2005 lincoln navigator?


This is a very complicated and expensive system to maintain. I would strongly recommend doing a air suspension conversion on your Navigator and be done with the problem forever.

If the rear suspension is not affected its probably a leak or a front height sensor.

2004 Lincoln nave, rear wheels jacked up high, front wheels normal, rides real rough??? any thoughts???? Thanks,


Replace the air suspension with conventional shock/strut
conversions. The Air Ride System is not worth investing
time and money ,after the vehicle is 5 years old.
Too expensive to maintain ,and too difficult to diagnose

Next time buy the Ford version of the vehicle

My suggestion to you and all the other folks leaving questions on this board about collapsed air suspension systems in luxury cars is to fix that one by replacing it with a real spring and shock system which you can buy at www.strutmasters.com if it is economically feasible, then sell it and avoid air suspensions systems like the plague. There are legions of old 70s Citroens still sitting idle 30 years later on collapsed air suspensions systems in garages and barns all over the country which cars the buyers can't let go because they cost so damn much. Get a coleman air mattress and use it every day, see how long it really lasts.

The air ride suspension on my 2005 navigator is not working is there a manual switch to turn it on?


Have you had anyone to jack the car up. if so the could have turned off the switch, which is usually located pass. side under dash area. If it's on, then the relay may be bad. If it has air ride, it has a manual switch to prevent your suspension from riding high or having air bags that make the car look like a low rider. Anytime it is jacked up, turn this switch off.

Hi, i lift my lincoln mark viii '94 to change the breaks. and when a removed the jack lifter the suspension came down (back and front). what happenned??? what can i do? thanks.


If you failed to shut off the air suspension switch (located in the trunk) you may have blown an air line when you jacked the car up. All Lincolns equipped with air suspension should have it shut off whenever jacking up the car. You can try to turn the switch off and back on to see if the air springs refill but if not, trace the air lines from the compressor to both the front and rear to check for a blown line. If you don't detect a blown line, you may have damaged the air springs.

Hopefully just needs to be reset, those air susp r expensive. Some susp come with a switch to turn on and off could be on the left or right rear back look for it turn off then on if that does not work, disconnect p bat terminal for 5 min then reconnect. Listen for suspension should make some noise.
