Sounds like the problem is in the air bag suspension, not the compressor. The air bags shouldn't be losing air when the car sits. The compressor adjusts the suspension level according to the load. The air bags have a valve similar to a blow up raft that allows air to pass through both ways. If when the car is running the compressor is constantly running and not turning off, the issue is within the air bags and/or the air line.

1992 CROWN VICTORIA LX I REPLACED FUSES INSIDE AND UNDER HOOD FOR AIR RIDE SUSPENSION AND IT STILL WON'T AIR UP. PLEASE HELP


Air ride suspension basically works like this. you have a small air compressor and a sensor that connects between the rear axle and the under body Frame. When this sensor detects a load movement like more or less weight it turns on the air compressor to air up or opens a exhaust valve to let air out. most common problems with this system. broken or disconnected sensor. leak in the air lines between compressor and shocks. or a bad or weak compressor.

I have 94'crown vic with rear air ride suspension problems. The back end won't rise. Any help is appreciated.


Start by checking the fuses for the air compressor for the rear suspension. these will be listed in your owners manual. Failing this it could be the compressor motor or wiring to the motor, unless you can hear the compressor working. If the compressor is running but not adjusting the back of the car then you have an air leak in one of the shocks or air lines.
if you find it is a fuse, also listen for the compressor motor running and an air leak, if the system is running constantly to make up for a leak , that may be what blew the fuse.

Hope this helps

How does one reconnect the air suspension


You probably have a leak in the system. Did "they" check the lines and air suspension? "They" probably disconnected the compressor to keep it from burning out from overuse. You need to fix the leak before reconnecting or the compressor will wear out very quickly.

Air suspension is not working


It just happened to me. I took it to a spring shop and had the air bags replaced with coil springs. It is an identical fit from a Crown Vic and only cost $200.00 total! Too much can go wrong with other parts of the air suspension. The ride is the same.

Air suspension problem 92 crown vic


you can unplug it at the compressor end and supply your own power with a couple of bits of wire straight from your battery and does not interfere with the vehicles systems.Make sure you put positive to positive etcThat will tell you it operates.You will then have to remove outlet hose to check that it is creating any pressure.The pump should have a reciever drier that keeps moisture out of the air lines Considering the age of the vehicle that part is due for replacement.Do you have a test light/probe to check if you have power to the pump?You can do this test at the compressor plug.
