Question about 2000 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

Suspenision Im having a problem with my air suspension on my 2000 lincoln continental. I had my compressor changed , my suspension computer changed and my lines check which were good. The compressor is not coming on like its suppose to as if its not recieving the right signal. It came on when the car was jacked up a little and it put air into the bags just a little. What can i do to make my compressor come on when supposed to and rise the car to the proper level. Im wondering could it be my main computer thats bad and sending signals and if so do i change it or go to a dealership and let them reset it.

    I had been told, if your compressor is dead there is something that killed it and fixing the compressor is just inviting the killer back in. I bought a conversion kit from Strutmasters.com and Ive had it on the car about 2 years now. I haven't had any problems with it so far. I have to say its a lot better than that air system that was on there. I had so many issues with that. I replaced a few things here and there and spent a lot of money on it before I found a conversion kit for under half of what one wheel cost to fix!! ... check them out before you spend a lot of money on parts that may not fix it all.

Can not get the new air ride compressor to come on


Make sure the trunk switch is turned on. Your doorjam and trunk switches are wired into the Air-ride. They must sense the openings are closed before the lift compressor will work.

There are level controls for height. If the car was put on a lift without the switch being turned off, the positioner may be stretched beyond working.

YOU NEED A STAR 2 TESTER 007 - 0041 - A OR DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT THAT IS EQUIVALENT TO TURN ON AIR COMPRESSOR TO TEST AND REGULATE AIR TO AIR SPRINGS. ALSO RESET THE AIR SPRING COMPUTER.IF YOU NEED TO RELEASE AIR FROM AIR SPRINGS TURN OFF AIR SUSPENSION SWITCH.THEN REMOVE AIR SPRING SOLENOID RETAINING CLIP,ROTATE THE SOLENOID COUNTERCLOCKWISE TO FIRST STOP, THEN PULL SOLENOID STRAIGHT OUT SLOWLY TO THE SECOND STOP UNTIL ALL AIR BLEEDS OUT AIR SPRING, THEN REMOVE THE SOLENOID. YOU COULD HAVE DAMAGED FRONT AIR SPRINGS WHEN YOU CHANGED OIL WITH OUT TURNING OFF AIR SUSPENSION.WHICH CAUSED AIR SPRINGS OVER EXPAND DAMAGING THEM.

Where is the location of the air ride compressor on a 2000 lincoln continental?


When looking at the engine of your 2000 Lincoln Continental you will notice a coner brace on the left front corner. Directly under the brace you see the air ride comnpressor. you will have to remove the corner brace to gain access to the compressor. Once you do so it is just a matter of a few hard to get to nuts to remove. The compressor has rubber tubes coming from it that supply the air to the air bladders on your suspension. Don't forget the disconnect the battery prior to disconnecting the wiring clips in order to avoid causing electrical damage.

Air ride suspension not working. blew the fuse


i have the same problem with my 89 mark 7. i pulled off the dryer to test it for a clog. dryer was clear. but now i cant get the hoses back into the dryer. i suspect the relay now since i replaced the compressor with a new one. i did find one bad o-ring in one of the airbags. replaced it but im still stuck. so dont disconnect your dryer. check the relay in the trunk it's close to the on/off switch.

My back air suspension is not working.


First, check to make sure the air pump switch is "on" and nott turned off due to a tire change or other suspension work. Look in your owner manual for the location in the trunk.
Did you just have repair work done?
Also, check fuses & relays. Info in owner manual.
Let us know what you find so we can help.

Basically, this system has rubber air bladders that have lines running from an electric pump that inflates or deflates the air bags (springs). There is a small computer box that reads a height sensor in the rear, It will add air if too low, and let air out if too high.

Is yours fully deflated?
