Question about 2001 Lincoln Town Car
Not holding air in the air bags not smooth at all it give you a head ache dont know how to test the solonoid or the level sensor
If it's a 2001, you can bet the airbags have developed cracks and are leaking. Arnott Industries sells replacement airbags that carry a lifetime warranty. They are a little tricky to install, but the kits have instructions and with a regular set of tools, you should be able to handle it.
If you want to see the cracks, jack the car up by the frame so that the back axle drops. You'll see the "cups" that the airbags sit on and surely hundreds of little splits in the rubber.
If you've had this problem a long time, there's a chance that the compressor (under the hood, and behind the drivers side headlight) has worn itself out trying to keep up the pressure and MAY have to be replaced.
There are spring kits the defeat the airbag system entirely, but it's such a great feature on this heavy car that I wouldn't consider making that change.
Hope this helps, or at least gets ya started!

Considering the various possibilities and complexity of the system, it may be to your advantage to seek the services of your dealer and/or a qualified professional. This and the added fact that "state inspection" would not pass your vehicle without it.
Alternately, you may want to try this site specializing airbags for DIYers (do-it-yourself) and can provide pictorial diagnosis/elimination of probable defective components from clocksprings to modules including seatbelts. Incidentally they have a "Try it free" option with limited functionality. Of course, pls check for your particular year and model.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

The blinking light is giving you a code and according to what you have listed that would be a code 25. However there is no code 25 for this system are you sure that it is not a 52 instead? If so then this code is for a loss of power to the module. Did you have battery go dead recently? If this is the case then you can clear it yourself. You will have to locate a gray 2 wire connector behind the glove box first. Here are the instructions to clear the code 52.

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.
