Sounds like a load leveler sensor.

Even as a wrench twister that do my own work and don't pay labor costs. To rid yourself of the cost and headaches I prefer and suggest conversion over to conventional suspension.

The rear end of the SUV locks down like it has been lowered or there is way too much weight in the rear of the car. It's like the shocks colapsed.


What's the make and model vehicle? There are several makes out there - most famously Land Rovers - that have air suspensions. A failed pump or opened system will produce the result you mentioned. There are other systems where hydraulic fluid is used along with an engine driven pump to set the suspension. Mercedes was famous for doing that for a while.

Good luck.

When the key is off, the air suspension shouldn't lose any air, so you could have a valve leak in the system. I'm not familiar with all the components of the system, but did you check the valve that allows the system to bleed off pressure for leaks when the system is turned off?

You likely have a leaking air bag in the suspension, they last about 100,000 miles on average. Have a shop test the bags for leaks.

Air suspension bags are probably leaking. air comp shuts off after 3 minutes because its working to hard. since bags are leaking rear than sags. This car has bags instead of shocks in rear. light comes on when comp turns it self off.

2001 Navigator rear suspension sagging. While


It sounds like one of your air bags could have blown. I would check them first. I would also suggest checking into a replacement non air conversion kit from Strutmasters. I replaced the air system on my 2002 Navigator and saved a lot of time, money and headaches.The lines on my navigator had holes in them and I replaced the compressor twice before I realized it. Very costly. Avoid all the hassle and check out Strutmasters.

The rear suspension is down on my 1999 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer. The cause: while out in the woods I came across a small dip which cause my back left wheel to lift off the ground. The suspension...


I had a 1999 Expedition. When you put the 4x4 on it raises the vehicle an extra inch or 2.
It may help to turn the 4x4 off. Two wheel drive is a lower air setting.
Your original pump may still be good. The problem can be in the front. The compressor is not filling the front suspension to the cutoff point. It will lift the rear after the front end is at running height. Since you lost the front end first, the remaining air bled out there and then the rear came down. Once you shut down the car the suspension was done, all the air was let go.
There are adjustment solenoids on the body but you need someone qualified to repair this.

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.
