How to solve air bag warning light coming on 2004 Sebring convertible.


could be the condition to the air bag. but do not do anything with the air bag until the air bag has been off for an hour at most. you do not want to trigger the airbag as you are working on it. it could also be a faulty air bag and could need replacing. same dont touch until battery been on vehicle for an hour.

How to repair licoln town car rear suspension


early 90's Lincoln town cars have rear air bag suspension and are very prone to failure. cost of one air bag is well close to 250 dollars.

this is a inexpensive fix for that issue. it is possible to install coil spring in replace of the air bags. you will lose the air ride but the cost will be under 100 dollars for both compared to 500 dollars for air ride replacement bags.

the coils that fit are the same year grand marque ford/mercury cars. so when ordering you order for same year as you car grand marque rear springs,

after market or even dealer cost under 100 dollars. they come will the spring seat as the set.

the repair is raise vehicle and support with jack stands. disconnect the lower shock mount so that it allows the rear axle to travel down. this will need to be done for the instillation of the new replacement springs.

next you will need to disconnect the air lines that go to each air back and pull the clips holding the top of the air bag into the chassis of the car. the bottoms float free so this is all that holds them in the car.

remove the air bags out of vehicle and tie air line up and away out of the travel of the car.

install the new spring seats on the rear axle and upper chassis mount.

install the spring top first. you may need to have an assistant pull down on that side of the rear axle to get enough clearness to get the bottom in the seat. you may also try jacking up the opposite side so the side you are working on travels down easier.

after both sides are in there upper and lower seated position.

jack up on the rear axle to install the lower shock mounts back in there original position. after done lower vehicle and recheck all seats to insure they are properly seated. if so you have completed the repair.

this will take no more that two hours start to finish. if you are familiar with a car it may take even less time.

Air bag pump is running, new airbags . rear bags wont air up.


These Lincoln air suspensions are terrible. I have converted many over to coil springs at a fraction of the cost of replacing/repairing the bags. If the rear bags don't inflate, there is a broken air line to the bags or the bags are leaking

MY REAR AIR BAGS AND SHOCKS ARE DONE FOR ON MY 1988 LINCOLN MARK 7 IF I REPLACE JUST THE SHOCKS HELP ME OUT FOR A WEEK TILL I CAN BUY THE AIR BAGS PLEASE HELP P.S. AIR BAGS ARE TORN IN REAR ONLY?


Replace all your Air Bag Suspension with conventional
non air ride parts.

Too expensive to maintain air suspension on an older
vehicle.

There are several companies that offer those products

You can't use a car with deflated air bags,have to be
replaced

My 1989 Lincoln Continental air suspension went out is there a replacement spring or shock I can use instead of orignal air ride


Yes, theres a kit that replaces the air bags with shocks and springs and then they give you a small module that connects in the trunk to the air suspension diagnostic connector to turn off the air ride light and keep compressor from running, i,ve found that the price ends up costing the same or more to replace than repair. i have done a ton of these and the problem is the bags leak and sometimes cause the airpump to go bad, theres a web site i use that sells these parts cheap and they work great, start by replacing the bags and then the compressor if needed, the selinoids on the bags are reuseable, now if this car has the front and rear air ride then it is cheaper to convert and i think this car does if its got the v6 engine then it is front and rear air suspension, they sell a kit for 499.00 dollars and comes with struts and springs complete to convert i think just one air strut is 200.00 so it is cheaper to convert .i hope this helps, the web site is get google Airnott industries and then go to the coorect year and make for your car,

When i hit some uneven pavement, I can hear my back struts, kind of sounding like they need to be oiled. My check air suspension light came on, and stayed on for about an hour. It has not been on since. ...


there is a couple of questions that actually need answers prior to a diagnosis such as one of them is do you ever turn your vehicle off and still here your compressor come on to prime your ar bags if so i would recomend replacment of the air bags on the rear your vehicle has shocks on the rear not struts the air suspension is a seperate unit on this vehicle it doesnt have air shocks but shocks and air bags over extending air bags can blow them and cause small leaks if you do not hear the compressor coming on check you rear sway bar you might need rear sway barr links or bushing which is not a huge repair expense and also sometime what you might think is comeing from the rear of your vehicle might actually be comeing from the front have your swaybar in the from checked as well

REAR AIR BAG SUSPENION


Hello;
The inflatrion air valves have probably gone bad. You can buy the valves seperate from the air bags but make sure your bags are in good shape. The air valves come (or did) with the new air bags. May be time to replace the rears with new. Hope this helps, please rate me high;
