Description and Operation The rear air suspension:

  • Is an air-operated, microprocessor-controlled, suspension system.
  • Replaces the conventional rear coil spring suspension.
  • Provides low spring rates for improved ride and automatic rear load leveling.
  • Is standard equipment on the Town Car.
  • Is available as optional equipment on Crown Victoria and Grand Marquis.
The rear air suspension system has the following features:
  • The system is operational with the ignition switch in the RUN position.
  • Automatic rear load leveling has limited operation for one hour after ignition switch is turned to OFF.
  • The air suspension switch, located on the right side of the luggage compartment, must be turned OFF when the vehicle is on a hoist, being towed or jump started.
  • The Air Suspension warning indicator is located in the instrument panel, to the right of the speedometer.
    • The warning indicator flashes five times and then stays on when service switch is turned off or a system malfunction is detected.
  • The rear leveling system operates by adding or removing air in the springs to maintain the level of the vehicle at a predetermined rear suspension D ride height dimension, and is controlled by a control module (5A919) .
  • The rear air suspension control module also controls the electronic variable orifice (EVO) steering.
  • Refer to Section 11-02 for Description of the EVO steering system.
  • Air required for leveling the vehicle is distributed from the air compressor to the rear air springs by a nylon air line which runs from the compressor air dryer (5346) through a Y-fitting to each individual air spring.

Control Module Power and Ground The control module (5A919) has the following features:
  • Power is provided by Circuit 418 and is controlled by the air suspension switch.
    • The air suspension switch is powered through a 15 amp fuse in Circuit 296 in Town Car.
    • AIR SUSPN PUMP (30A MAXI) fuse provides this power through Circuit 414 in the Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis.
  • Control module ground is provided through control module wire harness Pins 6 and 21, to the RH inner quarter panel sheet metal, near the control module .
---------------------------------
Weight Added When weight is added to the vehicle:
  • The air suspension height sensor (5359) length is reduced from trim length, sending a "rear is low" signal to the control module (5A919).
  • The control module then turns the compressor on by grounding the compressor relay control Circuit 420. This restores the rear of the vehicle to trim position.
    • Battery voltage is provided to the relay coil by Circuit 414.
  • The control module opens the spring solenoid valves (5311) by switching Circuits 416 and 429 to ground. This allows pressurized air to enter the springs.
    • Battery voltage is provided to the air spring solenoid valves by Circuit 414.
  • Compressed air flows from the compressor, through the compressor air dryer (5346) airlines and spring solenoid valves into the rear springs (5560).
  • As the rear springs raise the rear body height, the air suspension height sensor increases in length until the preset trim height is reached.
  • The control module then turns off the compressor (through the relay) and closes the air spring solenoid valves.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Weight Removed When weight is removed:
  • The air suspension height sensor (5359) length is increased from the trim length, sending a "rear is high" signal to the control module (5A919).
  • The control module then opens the vent solenoid valve (located in the compressor assembly) by switching Circuit 421 to ground and opens the solenoid valves (5311) by switching Circuits 416 and 429 to ground. This restores the rear of the vehicle to trim position.
  • Compressed air flows from rear springs (5560), through the air spring solenoid valves, air lines, compressor air dryer (5346), and out the vent solenoid valve.
  • As the body lowers, the air suspension height sensor length decreases until the preset trim height is reached.
  • The control module then closes the vent and solenoid valves.
-----------------------------------------
Control module operates as follows:
  • In general the control module uses a 45-second averaging interval to determine when compress and vent operations are needed.
  • However, door courtesy lamp switch (13713) inputs can override the 45-second averaging interval so compress and vent operations can begin immediately, if needed.
  • The 45-second averaging interval is used to keep the control module from making unneeded corrections.
  • When a vehicle at the correct rear trim height hits a bump, the air suspension height sensor output will read low and high in addition to trim until the oscillations die out.
  • If the control module were to correct for these "bump induced readings", system duty cycle would increase unnecessarily.
  • The 45-second averaging interval not only eliminates corrections due to bumps, but also eliminates unneeded corrections resulting from braking, accelerating, and turning. The control module tabulates the air suspension height sensor readings, and does not begin a compress or vent operation until the air suspension height sensor (5359) reads low or high for 45 seconds consistently.
  • There are more restrictions on vent operations than there are on compress operations.
  • To eliminate the chance of catching a door on a curb as the vehicle vents down, the control module will not allow any venting to occur when a door is open.
  • The control module does not allow any vent operations for the first 45 seconds after the ignition switch (11572) has been turned to RUN.
    • Even if a vehicle is extremely high in the rear, DO NOT expect it to vent until the ignition switch has been turned to RUN for 45 seconds.

1994 shift only when overdrive is off.


first thing to check is transmission oil level and quality. If that is fine than your looking at either a valve body problem (valve body is what controls the selection of gears) or possibly a problem with the bands on the planetary gear set, they can be tightened in certain models. However i dont think it is the bands.
Does the overdrive only engage 4th gear? or does it feel like the gear ratios are different between overdrive and normal before the problem happened? some overdrive buttons engage final gear and some do as much as change gear ratios like in a cvt (contantly variable transmission) and some just change the timing in the gear changes to provide more rpm/power.
My best guess is that the valve controlling the overdrive in the valve body has failed and therefor you dont get a response from the transmission (i.e no gear shifting when overdrive is selected)

I have a 1995 lincoln town car signature series and I having a problem with my transmission. When I put my car in reverse gear the car does not want to back up.


Check the oil level inside. The automatic transmisions are working oil based. If not enough oil, not enough pressure for moving the hidraulic mechanisms inside. The clutch is also actioned by oil pressure.

1994 toyota four runner not going into overdrive until it is warmed up


This may not be a problem. First you did not tell us if this is a manual or automatic. But neither are supposed to go into overdrive until the engine is warmed up and you don't have to press much on the gas pedal. You should check fluid levels also, and perhaps change fluids. If it is a manual, the overdrive may have a separate fluid compartment and level. Overdrive should not engage under 50 mph either. Tell us more details.

Mech or Elec overdrive


According to Haynes Auto Repair Manual, section on automatic transmissions, the 1994 Towncar has the AODE transmission
Baumann Electronic Controls website
URL: http://www.becontrols.com/tech/ch1alphabet.htm
has following:
The Automatic Overdrive (AOD) transmission was introduced in 1980 as Ford's first four-speed automatic overdrive transmission.
The AOD-E transmission is essentially a beefed-up electronically-controlled version of the AOD.
If this doesn't answer your question, you might troll around the website.

A/C Problems When Accelerating


I have a 1994 Town Car EVTM, Electrical and Vacuum Troubleshooting Manual. I no longer need it and will sell for $10 including shipping. Let me know.

As for the hoses:

  • a black hose goes from the intake to a vacuum manifold with eight ports.
  • the next 2 ports go to the PCV through a "T"
  • the next port goes to the check valve for the a/c system. The check valve has two ports coming out. One for the reservoir and one to the heater control panel.
  • the next port goes to the automatic park brake release switch (I think on the steering cloumn base.)
  • the next port on the vacuum manifold has a red plastic hose going to the EVR, EGR Vacuum Regulator. A green hose comes out of the EVR and goes to the EGR Valve.
  • the next port has another red hose that goes to the FPRC (fuel pressure regulator on fuel rail?)
  • the last port goes to a check valve and then on to the brake booster.

Rear air suspension


If there is a manuel valve, it will be near the top of each shock. If it is automatic leveling, you will have a pump that automatically pumps them up.

It would help to know if your system is automatic or manuel.
