There is a level sensor under the rear of the car .Either it has broken off or the sensor itself has gone bad .There is a rod about 5 inches long that attaches to the rear control arms see if that can be located :)

Does your Buick have electronic level control (ELC), which utilizes air adjustable shocks. ELC maintains the rear trim height under a wide range of loads. Refer to ELC, as applicable ? Have you changed shocks on the back ?

Air supension stays too high


There could be a couple of problems, first and easiest is the rear height sensor became disconnected from its mount. This is common because the sponsor clips on by a kinda weak spring and can be easily disconnected.also where the sensor mounts is a small round metal ball that screws onto frame and rear suspension, the balls after time wear to the point that the sensor spring cannot hold on.there's also an adjustment on the lower mount, if you move it up the vehicle will lower....then you could have a concern with the air compressor vent not allowing it to vent down to ride height. Or the vent solenoid on top of each bag stuck also not allowing it to vent..to ck it yourself, go for a short ride around the block and when you come back park on a level surface, shut off car, exit and close door....listen for an auditable click in the rear, and front left corner of car and watch the distance between rite and wheel lip, see if it drops. If it does I would be leaning towards the simple adjustment...also check thr front ride height on level surface, if you have a suspension problem on 1side of the car and it sits lower,it will throw off rear ride height. ...

Recommended service for your 2006 Honda Ridgeline:

Replace VTM-4 rear differential fluid: Driving in mountainous areas at very low vehicle speeds or trailer towing results in higher level of mechanical (shear) stress to fluid or frequently fully loaded. This requires differential fluid changes more frequently than recommended by the Maintenance Minder. If you regularly drive your vehicle under these conditions, have the differential fluid changed at 7,500 miles (12,000 km), then every 15,000 miles (24,000 km).

I have a 1999 Lincoln town car limousine. Sometimes the rear air suspension will drop down after being parked for awhile. But, sometimes it doesn't. While driving with no one in the car the suspension...


Yes, There are leveling sensors under the car. You really have 2 separate problems though.

There is a Master venting valve usually under the drivers front fender. It bleeds the air out of the system. It is suppose to bleed out enough to level the car and not allow the rear end to dip.

The doorjam switches and the trunklid switch are part of the system. If these switches send an "open" signal, the rear bags will not inflate. Conversely the switches must work to tell the car to lower when a door or trunklid is open.

Because of the stretch of the car or LIFTING THE CAR without deactivating the sensor switch in the trunk, the leveling sensor can be unseated or damaged. It is normal for the suspension to raise to compensate for added passenger weight. It will not raise until the doors are closed as well as the trunklid.

It sounds like the master venting solenoid may be bad and working intermittently before failing altogether. You can soap water test the bags and the lines for leaks.

Remember to watch your tire rating. Load classes go by Alphabet letters with a "D" having more capacity than a "C" and an "E" having more capacity than a "D". Tire inflation is directly related to carrying capacity. It is stated on the sidewall of your tires. What I am trying clumsily to say is that you can not let your rear tires bulge out with heavy passengers and then try to let the Air-Ride jack up the car to compensate.

I use an SUV style tire on my lighter car. Your Lincoln is heavy to begin with, but with added passengers or a "stretch" the weight goes beyond the stock tires' capability to handle the load.

I hope my solution is helpful.

There is a bar hanging from behind the rear passenger side wheel and in drive the car feels like someone is rear ending you and in reverse the bar drags and the air suspension just goes flat


Don't drive it until you have someone look at it. If it's
part of the suspension, it would be too dangerous to
drive on public roads. It sounds like the rear stabilizer
bar has dropped.Good luck.

leaks can be difficult to find in these systems. They could be in the air springs themselves, the air lines etc... not to mention you could have a ride height sensor that is malfunctioning or the control module. A lot of people are converting these old cars from the air ride suspension system to a standard passive coil spring conversion. A high quality, powder coated, American steel coil spring is DESIGNED to last the LIFETIME of the vehicle. http://www.strutmasters.com offers conversion kits with a lifetime warranty so youwon't have to worry about your suspension again. Give them a shot.. it definately beats the dealer price of around $1200 to fix your air ride.

20080 sequoia platinum edition with load leveling issue


I think that you need a recalibration of the ride height sensors. Unfortunatly, this can only be done with a tool that the Toyota dealership has in the shop. I just did a Landcruiser with the same suspension, and it took me a while, could NOT get it right, I ended up having to replace one of the height sensors, but there were NO DTC codes in the suspension ECU. You either need a recalibration, or a sensor replacement, followed by a recalibration. I know this may not help you "do it yourself", but, this is what you need. A FixYa rating would be greatly appreciated. Hope I helped you out. Sorry about the sweating in TX. Nice here in PA.
