I have an 04 RR while I was driving it lowered now it's saying air suspension is in active. Can Someone help?

Your air shocks are not working
you should have an air pump in the back end of your car which pumps the shocks up but the pump may be worn out as well the air lines may have holes in them. If the pump is working you will hear a humming as the pump works.
My pump was shot and my shocks were worn out so I replaced them with manual air shocks you pump up with an air compressor with the hose coming out under my bumper out of sight. I check them every six months and top them up. Sure cheaper than buying the pump and all the trimmings.

What is wrong with the air suspension on my town car?

The movement is caused by a loose suspension. Deflated parts will not control body roll and without cushion suspension parts can be bent.

Having to replace only a defective broken part is cheaper than guessing. The air suspension has a diagnostic feature which can pinpoint bad components. A high end diagnostic scanner can hook up to the suspension and tell you what needs replacing.

If only a component needs replacing the cost can be low. Even the air bags can be patched or some will interface with cheaper Ford air suspension. But if things are too expensive some people replace the suspension with regular coil springs. You lose a lot, load leveling and superior ride.

You might Websearch for videos about these repairs.

If you are having problems with the Air-Ride, for example air pump not working, your best bet is to have a conversion kit installed. Do away with the Air-Ride and install coil springs and shock-absorbers. It is far easier and cheaper.

What do I need to do if the air suspension in my 2006 Buick Rainier will not stay aired up? Every time I stop at a light, I can hear it pumping back up. At one point, when we were experiencing below zero...

the rubber on the suspension that inflates is worn. it may have some dry rot. you can replace them but it will cost you a lot plus your pump is working overtime and that will wear out and add to the cost of repair. You can get a conversion kit where coil springs are installed and it will be a lot cheaper

What is cost to get air suspension repair

I had the air suspension on my ford fail several years ago and the price to fix was way too expensive, The air suspension relies on a small air compressor under one of the front guards which seizes up after the lubricatant dries up and it cost back then about $400 to fix.
I was told to replace the rear shock absorbers with just the standard air shock that you pump up at the garage which I did and never had any more trouble with my suspension
check it out, its a lot cheaper

Air suspension not working

There are sensors for each corner. It sounds more like a sensor than a bag because your pump would keep running trying to raise the low corner. Your pump is shuts off.

Now you did not say if the pump will lift the other 3 corners without you having to hot wire the pump. You probably know about the shutoff in your trunk.

You should be able to find used parts in a Salvage yard. You can try Autozone or Oreillys for aftermarket parts. But the dealer and some places can use a diagnostic plug to quickly ID the problem.

Also, Ford and Mercury have Air suspension on Crown Vics and Marquis. The parts would be cheaper than those with a Lincoln badge. We used Crown Vic parts on a Mark 7.

Check suspension light is on 19997 expidotion how

does the vehicle have an air ride suspension? if so check to make sure the switch is turned on it should be under the passenger side dash at kick panel or inside one of the side panels where the jack and tire tools are in one side or the other if the switch is on you may have an issue with the pump system or the bags themselves if the bags are blown it will be cheaper to get a conversion kit and pur regular springs and shocks under it

Buick Park Avenue rear suspension pump noise

You may have to replace it but money wise it is a lot of times cheaper to convert over to standard shock/strut suspension than it is to buy the pump
