You must have a leak somewhere. Take a squirty bottle with a soapy solution and spray it around the fittings, on the lines going to the air bags, watch for bubbles. Follow the lines and check for leaks at all the connections. Good luck.

I have 2006 Honda Accord se, engine lite started flashing then permantly on bout 1 1/2 moths. Now won't start but belt still goes round, what could it be?


You drove with a flashing check engine light and then with it on solid. Flashing check engine light means STOP DRIVING and get it fixed. So this sounds like an abused and neglected car to me. Get the trouble codes read that are stored in the computer. Check for good fuel pressure and spark. Fix one or both.

Air suspension light comes on after copmpressor stops running


Sounds like you need to check the air-bags for a leak. Unfortunately, the compressor may have wore itself out attempting to continuously provide air to the air-bag and may also need replacing. Just my $0.02 worth.

Sometimes when starting 2000 lincoln signature tc the idle will surge as this awful sound like someone blowing a conch shell ?other times w /do same while driving. Only way to stop noise is to push qu


the compressor that pumps up the air suspension does make a horrid noise, and if you can turn it off, like I could in my crown vic, just long enough to see if that is indeed the compressor making the noise you hear, then try that. My switch was located in the trunk.

Rear suspension compressor don't stop burns compressor


YOUR AIR BAGS HAVE A LEAK, OR LINE. CHECK WITH A SOAPY WATER SOLUTION, MAKE SOLUTION WITH DISH WATER LIQUID SOAP. GO HEAVY ON THE SOAP. SPRAY WITH A BOTTLE SPRAYER ON THE BAGS AND LINES AND LOOK FOR BUBBLES. THAT WILL BE YOUR LEAK, YOU MAY HAVE MULTIPLE LEAKS, SO MAKE SURE TO CHECK THE ENTIRE SYSTEM.

Both rear air bags went down at the same time, I dont think its the air bags because they went down at the same time. the compressor was making noise then its stopped and the car slowly dropped in the...


those airbag suspensions do not make it much past the initial warranty period. there are many parts, hoses, valves, pumps, regulators, which can and do go bad and it costs more to fix it than the car is worth. strutmasters out of canada sells a kit to let you take all that garbage out and replace with a real spring and shock suspension. it ain't cheap, but it costs less than fixing the bags systems. look on their website and figure out how much the car is worth.

My Rear suspension stop working on my 97 Expedition. The rear Bags are about 6 mos old. The compressor is working. It was working fine yesterday but this morning when I started up my truck and drove away...


sounds like possibly the bags are blown or either lines leaking if it's the bags blown out there are a couple choices replace the bags obviously or you can get an aftermarket kit to do away with the air ride suspension and put regular springs and shocks under it which is alot cheaper than new bags. but make sure you don't have a line that has ruptured

"check air suspension" message appears after 10 min. of driving


your air bags have a hole in them and your compressor might need a new fuse, relay switch, or you might need new compressor
