Air Suspension system Problem 1990 Lincoln Towncar

" Check air suspension sys. " warning came on so I unhooked connectors in trunk (passengers side) as per owners manual thinking this would stop the pump from coming on & eliminate the warning; however, warning returns 15-20 min. after ea. restart of engine & pump turns on & off frequently. Is this normal or should air compressor & warning light have been rendered disabled???? Are there any further steps I should take??? If the air compressor is somehow disabled will that damage car if continue to drive it???? Thanks

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!

96 grand marquis...air suspension light stays on all the time...system seems to work fine otherwise...


If everything is working fine, then you need to decide if it is worth the time and expense of repairing the circuit that leaves the light on when it should be off. I would leave it alone and if the lamp bothers you that much you can remove it or cover it with a piece of black tape.

Check air suspension system problem


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.

I have a 93 lincoln town car and the battery kept dying on me and I found out it was the air ride suspension and the way to test this is to turn off the switch inside the trunk on the passenger side near the top and if this helps with the problem then it is the air ride suspension
