This switch would be located in one or two places. If you have Air-ride suspension the Inertia switch is usually close to the Air-ride switch. Sometimes there is a plastic cover over the switch in the rear cargo area. The rest of the time the Inertia switch is in front by the front seat kick panels.
There is a reset button on the switch, just press and hold for a second or two and the reset is made.
Here's an idea to get you started. Put the back end of the car up on ramps so you can crawl underneath it. With the front tires blocked securely, have a helper get into the car and roll down the windows so they can hear you talk from under the car. Have the parking brake set. Take a bucket or container of soapy water and a brush, and / or a spray bottle of soapy water, and crawl under to car. Have the helper start the car, and look and listen for leaks. I have heard the air bags leak on air ride cars after a few years. The soapy water should show a leak when applied to the air bags and the air lines.
This is a common problem for all Lincolns. Since the front rises but can't hold the air, it's a good sign that you
don't have any compressor problems. You probably hear the compressor
constantly clicking on to try to keep the front end inflated. The most common cause is a leak in the air spring. It is often referred to an "air bag" which is basically a cartridge that fills and releases air based on the load. The most common repair is to replace the air spring (it's advisable to replace 2 at a time). There is another solution to replace the air spring(s) with a conventional aftermarket shock type spring setup. It's a matter of personal preference. You would still get a nice ride from a conventional shock absorber setup. Although more expensive, I've always preferred to go with the air spring replacement to keep the classic "Lincoln" ride intact.
There is a diagnostic plug for the Airride. You might find a scanner at Autozone or Oreillys. They will scan for free if they have a compatible plug.
You have done a good job in trying to track the problem. But the ride height sensors and the angle of your parking area can affect when the parts will work.
The door jam switches also put the Airride into sequence. You may have noticed how the car waits until everyone is out before deflating. So not hearing the airflow while you hear the rear solenoids "clicking"
may mean the door jam switches are preventing the pumping.
This is one of those things that a diagnostic tester can find. This is also why each door jam switch costs over $10 and have 3 wires instead of 1 grounding wire.
thew motor you hear running is the compressor for the air ride or leveling system. if you dont hear the motor check the fuses. also there is a level sensor under the truc k in the rear and should be hooked to the rear end.
your bags may need replaced in the rear
i have seen this many times with several different solutions to the problem
more times i have seen the air ride bags blow out-which the compressor will stil work but with holes in the bags they will not air up
sometimes i have seen the valve go bad which i believe is located on the rear diff
Usually what happens is that the rear air springs leak, then the compressor runs all the time and burns up, then the fuse blows. Be prepared to spend big bucks. I usually buy parts from Arnott , check them out on the web.
