Sounds like one of the rear air bags is leaking and if you get under car and spray with soapy water from spray bottle you can find leak and replace bag or line that is leaking. turning off the pump is not a good idea the rear bags will deflate and cause the car to ride too low and cause damage bottoming out. also if the leak is not fixed soon the air compressor will run too constantly and burn out/wear out and very expansive to replace.

Air bag light will not go out


Hello Kathy,

Your Air Bag Light staying on is a warning that the system needs to be checked.

Some vehicles have a key actuated switch that controls passenger bag deployment, which is illuminated when active but instrument panel displays are a warning to the driver that something is wrong..

Check your owners manual for the complete details on the Air Bag System.

Air Suspension system Problem 1990 Lincoln Towncar


Unplugging the Connector will cause the Check Suspension light to come on as its listed as a fault as it cant run.

But with it unplugged the compressor shouldnt been able to start. If you want to kill the compressor pull its relay from the engine bay. located above the battery.

But i'd suggest correcting the fault as if those bags do pop your going to end up being grounded. as the rear will drop a fair bit!

I have a 1998 ford expedition eddie bauer with front air bag suspension and after driving for about 45 minutes the air suspension light comes on. what's the problem and how do I fix it


here's some info. Do you have a warning light on or does it say "Check Susp"?

Control Module
NOTE: The 4-wheel air suspension (4WAS) control module is also used for the rear air suspension (RAS) system. The internal processor recognizes external circuitry to determine if it is installed in a 4WAS or a RAS system.
NOTE: The air suspension control module is calibrated with information from the air suspension height sensors. A new or swapped air suspension control module requires the ride height adjustment calibration process to be performed.
A microcontroller-based electronic air suspension control module controls the air compressor motor (through a solid state relay), and all system solenoids. The air suspension control module also provides power to front and rear height sensors. The air suspension control module controls vehicle height adjustments by monitoring the two height sensors, vehicle speed, a steering sensor, acceleration input, the door ajar signal, transfer case signals, and the brake pedal position (BPP) switch. The air suspension control module also conducts all fail-safe and diagnostic strategies and contains self-test and communication software for testing of the vehicle and related components.
The air suspension control module is mounted in the passenger compartment inside the instrument panel, above the radio and temperature controls. The air suspension control module is interchangeable between the RAS and 4WAS system.
The air suspension control module monitors and controls the system through a 32-pin two-way connector. The air suspension control module is keyed so that it cannot be plugged into an incorrect harness. There are two sides of the harness connection to the air suspension control module. Each is uniquely colored and keyed to prevent reversing the connections.
Solenoid, Air Spring
swj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: Never rotate an air spring solenoid valve to the release slot in the end cap fitting until all pressurized air has escaped from the spring to prevent damage or injury.
The air spring solenoid:
  • Allows air to enter and exit the air spring during leveling operations.
  • Is electrically operated and controlled by the air suspension control module.
  • Is only replaced as a unit.
Air Suspension Diagnostic Connector
The air suspension diagnostic connector is used to aid the technician in diagnosing the air suspension system. It is also used to vent the system of compressed air when air suspension system components need to be repaired or replaced. The air suspension diagnostic connector is located under the steering column.
Steering Sensor
The steering sensor is mounted inside the passenger compartment on the steering column. It provides steering rate and position to the air suspension control module through two signals.
Pressure Relief Valve
The pressure relief valve (PRV) protects the rear air suspension components by venting the system to a specific pressure in the case of a system malfunction. The system will decrease the pressure to an acceptable level to maintain vehicle height. In the normal operation mode with normal system pressure the PRV is constantly closed and does not have any effect on the system performance or function. The PRV is replaceable without any air lines.
The PRV is located in the rear of the vehicle on the middle of crossmember #5 as a part of the rear air line assembly.
