Question about 1999 Ford Expedition
There has to be a way to manually inflate my rear air bags how do i do that
I had old plug that I wired to battery and used air hose to pump it up. But you have to have the switch open to add the air !

Sounds like the seals may have failed in the air shocks themselves. I also think you may have a bleeder valve problem. Follow the lines back and check the bleeder valve to see if it is leaking when you have someone else turn the vehicle on.

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. Airbags and compressors are constantly having to be replaced. Also something alot of people don't know is that theses air suspensions are not meant to be in temperatures above 90 Degrees or below 40 Degrees. That is most of the world. The temperature will cause you to replace alot of bags. and typically when your replacing a bag you are going to have to replace the compressor to because the bag had a hole or small crack in it causing the compressor to over work and it will die. I posted the link below so you can take a look
I hope I was of some help

Remove the negative cable from your car battery before replacing car air bags
Deactivate the air bag by removing the air bag fuses. Look in your car owners manual to locate the fuses
Unscrew steering column paneling and remove the airbag bolts on the back side of the steering wheel. Pull out the airbag until you see the back side and unplug the wires

make sure its turned on, the switch is in the trunk. The compressor is in RF area ahead of RF tire, the fuse which may be blown is in the fuse box at RF wheel under the hood. if the fuse is blown, its because the compressor has run too long trying to pump up the air bags which are leaking. it may need the bags and compressor, there are several companies that make springs for the rear to replace the bags.

The air suspension can be a tricky thing to mess with. When we were looking to replace just one of the rear bags it was going to be costly. My husband did some checking around online and found Strutmasters.com.
They offered great products at a great price and we were very pleased with the outcome of the replacement of the non air system. If you are replacing the entire system you are looking at a pretty penny. I would check Strutmasters out before you replace the air on your Expedition.
