JacDempsey, how about shocks/struts? If they are bad, that could be what u need to cruise the highway nice and smooth the way a Grand Marquis should.

SOURCE: Check Air Suspension for 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis

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.

I hope I was of some help
Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: 2000 mercury grand marquis air conditioning won't work

1st Thing,
Located Someone With a Set Of A/C Gauges 134A Freon,
Make Sure Your A/C System Has Enought Freon In It, There Is a Low Freon Pressure Switch
In The Electrical System, Usually, 50-60 PSIG or Less On The Gauges, Will Indicate Low Freon, When Freon Is Low The Compressor Is Dis-engaged To Prevent Compressor Damage.
1] Low Freon
2] Bad Low Pressure switch
3] Blowen Fuse[s]
4] Electrical Problem[s]
[a] Digital Climate Controlled ?
Climate Control Self Diagnose From Button's On Unit, OEM Manual Explains This,
If Yor Auto Has Digital Climate Control.
5] Bad Compressor DC Coil

Note: Does The Compressor Engage, Click-On When Button Is Pressed, But Getting
Only Warm Air?
Is One Of The Compressor Aluminum Tube's Cold, Be Careful Other Is Really Warm/Hot,
If Cold and or Sweating, Dripping Water [Normal], You Are Blending Hot Air w/Cold
Air At The Heater Blend Box, Making Warm Air.
If This Is So, If A Vaccum Controlled Temp Unit, Check For A Vaccum Hose Bad,
Should Be Either 1or 2 Vaccum Lines Going Into Firewall To Feed The Controller
Unit, If OK, Might Be a Bad Blend Box Diaphram, [Control's A/C air, Blocks Off
heater Coil Hot Air].
If Your Auto Is Vaccum Controlled, Can You Changed From Bottom, Dash,
Defrost Air Flow?, Yes, No Vaccum Lost Feeding Controller, Still Might Have
Bad Diaphram Blending Hot Air w/Cold If Your Have Cold Alum-Tubing In
engine Compartment.
If Digital Climate Controlled, Might have Diaphram's, Vaccum Controlled or
electrical Servo's Controlled vs Diaphram [Vaccum] Controlled.
This Might Help, Hopefully, This Is Just For Starter's, There More To Some System's
and Without The OEM Mgr's Manual[s] You/Be Would Be Lost, especially w/Electrical.
Later, God Bless

.y 1996 marquis rear air suspension is not working and it wont lift what should i do


There are few choices. Fix your system or replace the rear air suspension with steel coil springs. Some of the testing scanners can hook up to a diagnostic port and diagnose the air suspension parts. One part can cause the system to shut down. Make sure the on/off switch is set to on. It should be in the trunk next to the fuel pump switch.

Can a faulty drivers door open module cause my 2003 mercury rear air suspension to sag?


Why would you ask that?

Drivers door module has nothing
to do with suspension,only windows
& door locks,limited body functions,
not suspension system

I would replace all four corners with conventional
struts/shocks & disconnect the air system,then
you have something worth having on your car

Air suspension compressor sounds bad and wont pump up the rear on a 2003 mercury grand marquis


What is odd is the compressor stopping after so short a time. It may be your only problem.

When you have a leak in the system, the compressor keeps running because the sensors do not signal for it to shut off. On your vehicle it is either being told to shut off prematurely or the compressor is triggering a circuit breaker.

There are ride height sensors on the rear. If the vehicle was lifted without turning off the Air ride, the sensors may have been stretched.

You can check for air leaks in the suspension bags, and air lines using a spray bottle of soapy water. There is also a Master dump valve that should be ahead of the Drivers front tire/radiator well area. It is not a concern unless there is no pressure in the system.

Finally, just as the engine can express diagnostic Codes, so can the suspension. You need a better scanner to do this function. It is the quickest way to find the problem.

Please rate my info.

97 Merc Grand Marquis wont turn over after sitting for the winter. Battery is good. Ran great until sitting for 2 months.


The starter is probably just hung up, I would recommend that you gently tap on it with a rubber mallet, or the wooden end of a hammer.

My grand marqis 2000 model sags and almost touches the ground when the engine is off but becomes ok when engine is started. the rear gradually rises as the engine gets warmed up. what could be the problem...


These cars are eqipped with airbags instead of typical coil prings in the rear which aide in body stabization and ride leveling. Is it one side or both that does it? one side is likely a bad bag, both sides it's likely a bad valve.

Dash-board Warning Light says "CHECK AIR SUSPENSION". So, I've tried pushing that AIR SUSPENSION SWITCH inside the trunk; but nothing happens = the Rear End of my 1997 Grand Marquis is still "hanging" LOW....


the drier on the pump needs to be replaced every few years, but few people ever do. you could have a leaky bag if the pump runs a lot, or the pump fuse might be blown, or the drier clogged. the switch in the trunk is only for when you raise the car on a lift, leaving the rear axle hanging.
