You are referring to the suspension bags? There is a shutoff which is not intended for your problem. It is either in the rear interior panels close to the hatch opening or in the spare tire well. Look at your owners manual. You are not suppose to drive the vehicle like that. There are companies which repair the bags and you may not need both fixed. You may be able to eliminate the bags with coil springs. Or you may be able to put in used parts to lower the cost.

Air bag pump is running, new airbags . rear bags wont air up.


These Lincoln air suspensions are terrible. I have converted many over to coil springs at a fraction of the cost of replacing/repairing the bags. If the rear bags don't inflate, there is a broken air line to the bags or the bags are leaking

How to check lincoln air suspention pump to see if is putting air to rear bags


First check to see if the pump runs when the key is turned on, if not check the 30 amp fuse in the fuse box right side under the hood. If the fuse is blow the pump may have over heated from running longer than it should. As old as this car is it most likely has dry rotted air bags. If the pump runs spray the rear bags with windex and look for any bubbles should be none. This could get expensive if the pump is already gone.

Air bag suspension system wont inflate on 1992 lexus ls 400


The first thing to check would be the compressor, check all fuses and see if compressor is running.

i can tell you that most air bag systems develop a leak in the bags and the problem is not fixed inturn the air compressor runs so much to fill leaking bags that it over heats and destroys the compressor. most of the time the compressor fuse will blow, so check fuses first and then compressor. I have never seen a 1992 lexus with air bags.

If rearbag has a hole will this affect start ing? Depletes charge in new battery


You will have to turn the air ride system off until the bag is fixed. Otherwise the pump will run continuously trying to fill the bag. This will obviously kill the battery.

The rear of my truck drops and the ride gets real bumpy. Also my stabilizer track light turned on saying it needs to be serviced


Hi, those have air bags (air ride) and one or both of the air bags has a hole in it and is leaking out,they have a pump that fills them up with air but when the bag goes bad the pump will fill it,then it leaks out, and back and forth. you just need to replace the faulty suspension air bag. or e-bay sells kits to eliminate the air ride and replace with springs. good luck. yz-maniac....

What does the air suspension light mean?


It could mean the compress motor has running longer than usual, or you just forgot to turn the switch (in trunk) back on. Usually it means there is a leak in the suspension air bag so the motor keeps pumping. Checked the 2 air bags just like check flat tires, put soapy water and see if bubbles come out. I bought the bags online for about $95 each.

Suspension air compressor


If your compressor is running all the time, it is almost certain that you have a leak. It could be either in the lines going to the rear air bags, or the air bags themselves. Simplest way to find a leak, is to get a spray bottle with soapy water, make sure the suspension is aired up, and spray the lines starting from the compressor. Work all the way back to the bags, now when you get the bags nice and soapy then bounce the rear of the truck up and down. If their are any leaks the soapy water will bubble up showing you wear the leak it.
That is how i would start.

If its a bigger leak the rear air bags wont stay aired up, if its a small leak, then the air compressor will be running all the time to keep the truck aired up.

Remember, when you are driving, the compressor is constantly working to keep the rear bags at the proper height, even more so on rough roads.
