What is the problem you are having? to turn off the air ride, look in your trunk and towards the side on the driver side i believe it is should be a shut off switch any time you have work done on the vehicle at any shop tell them you have air ride, or just shut it off yourself before cause if you have had work done and they did not shut it off, it will fill the bags and blow the bags, so always be careful... but check the trunk, the switch should be in there on either the driverside or passanger side... you click the switch off with the car running and wait a few minutes for it to release the pressure... hope this helps you....

You may have a damaged or bent rod on the ride height sensor or the wiring is damaged to it or the sensor is defective. The sensor is located under the car it is easy to replace.

Air ride compressor is locked up, is it just something that i buy a new one and replace or are there other issues that cause them to fail?

Hi, welcome to my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

Air ride can get expensive to repair. They have kits to replace the rear air ride with normal springs which is a fraction of the cost. Goto the kit costs $159 to eliminate the air ride. They even show you how to keep the air suspension light from staying on.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

Service ride control stays on when i drive my 94 Seville

Check for an air leak in the air suspension system, if there is an air leak the system will continually run until it burns out the ride level compressor.

My 1996 jeep grand cherokee is blowing cold air for the first 30 minutes of my ride home (20-degree weather), then warms up slightly but never gets hot -- i'm guessing heater core (it has 200k+ miles)

It is most likely a thermostat. As your car gets older the thermostat begins to lose its spring like properties and stays open all the time causing your car to never warm up.

If you can't tackle right away, start your car in the morning and let it run for about 15 minutes to warm up. Be sure to turn the heat on full blast and recirculate the air.

What causes the Lincoln Navigator (2005) air struts to fail? Once they fail, is it best to switch to the coil type?

coil type dont often brake but give a harder ride than air types do, an air strut is like a bike pump its full of air under presher every time you hit a bump it squashes this air to ride out the bump, if the seals blow out the air strut is finished,,, its the same thing with oil shockers

What is the possible problem when my 98 deville rear suspension is jacked up to the top all the time? is there a way to reset it This occured after the last time I had the car in for repair and then...

I have seen this before. They put car on lift which lets suspension drop. When they set it back down the Air ride leveling rods get stuck and think they need to stay full. Like what was already mentioned, check your levelers located next to your suspension air bags to see if they are stuck.
