My air compressor went out in my 1993 Lincoln Town Car, so I replaced it with the conversion kit. My check air suspension light is still on. They told my husband to clip a wire and it would take care of it. No luck. He did not remove the compressor because he didn't know where it was. I can still hear the compressor everytime I get in the car. Does anyone know how go fix this or where the compressor is at so he can take it out?

Re: check air suspension light
The compressor is located under the air cleaner box. but if you dont want that hassle simply remove the fuse in the fuse panel under the hood. its next to the battery, under the cover there will be specific fuse locations on the lid, its a 30 amp fuse. once removed the noise will stop, but the light may come back on. In the conversion kit there are instructions on which wire to clip,also note that the module for the suspension also has circuits related to the steering as well, be careful.

I have learned from experience. I replaced the air bag suspension ($75) on my 2000 Town Car and then learned that I had a problem with the compressor. Then decided to replace system with coil springs. Went on ebay and got a conversion kit (Air Ditcher) that included the shocks ($123) with free shipping. My mechanic replace the bags with the coils for $40. He said that with the shock replacement it would be $120 because the top of the rear shocks were hard to get to. So the whole job should have cost $163. No more worries!
I know that you are trying to fix that air ride, but i put these replacement springs on my 93 towncar. Fixed the compressor problem (eliminated it) and cost a whole lot less. The install is kinda hard if you've never dropped a rear end before. Need a good tool set, a couple jacks, and jack stands to get it done. Check it out. Even having a mechanic install them would be cheaper than replacing a compressor.
The compressor is next to the air box on the driver side under a plastic cover. One plug, two hoses and 3 bolts that hold it down. The hose on the top of the compressor is a quick release. Push in hose and hold red ring at bottom, and it should pull right out
It sounds to me like your compressor got killed. What probably happened is that the airbag got a hole or tiny crack in it so the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag killed the compressor. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. I added the link below so you can check it out. http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm
I hope I was of some help
i installed the kit from strutmaster rides and drives great, did it in my garage in less than 2 hours,only problem is the airsuspension light you are suppose to clip keep light on,and will need to go to lincoln to turn offmbut does not effect anything on car so i just drive with suspension light on.
my brother in law replaced the air springs on my '94 town car with rear coil springs from a '92 crown vic. He raised the rear tires off the ground and put jack stands on the frame for safety on both sides. Then disconnected the shocks at the lower end and removed the air springs.removed rear tires and used a piece of 2x4 to pry axle down to provide clearance to put coil springs in place. then hooked shocks back up and it worked fine. the only way the coil springs could come out is if the car was upside down and then who cares. This project only cost $ 25.00 Real cheap being we were broke!
