Where is the compressor and compressor relay for the air suspension?

If it gives you fits,an aftermarket set of struts is available to eliminate the need for air suspension.

I did that on a Lincoln and a Taurus.They are designed to last as long as the warrantee. Sorry.

Most customers end up switching over to conventional springs.

Ford Taurus Heater won't switch over to AC

I guess first thing to find out is why compressor is not coming on, as without that running you won't get any cool air. May just need a recharge, but I would have that checked out first. If system is low on freon, it won't engage, and if it is low, why, as in where is leak & how much to fix it, would be my first concern.

Air continues to run with engine off

The air conditioner compressor is driven via belt by the engine; if the engine is off, the compressor is off = no AC.

You didn't mention which fan is still running but I'll assume it is the one underthe hood, not the one that circulates passenger compartment air. 
What is running is the electric fan that assists with cooling of the heat exchanger of the AC system. You probably have a thermal switch or relay that is not releasing.

Locate the relay/fuse box and check if there is a chart of the relays and fuses to locate the one that isn't releasing and try swapping two relays with the same part number on them to check relay function.
