Question about 1994 Lincoln Mark VIII
I have a 1998 Lincoln Mark 8. The air bag light flashes 5 times pauses and then flashes once. It then stops for a few seconds and starts over. I imagine this is a code 51 indication. Can anyone help me?

SOURCE: 95 Lincoln Mark 8 won't shutoff.
check the ignition switch and if this be the case it is cheaper to find a salvage yard and have the column same as yours and change the whole thing just take the steering column to a lock smith along with the key and they will rekey it to the new column

The blinking light is giving you a code and according to what you have listed that would be a code 25. However there is no code 25 for this system are you sure that it is not a 52 instead? If so then this code is for a loss of power to the module. Did you have battery go dead recently? If this is the case then you can clear it yourself. You will have to locate a gray 2 wire connector behind the glove box first. Here are the instructions to clear the code 52.

There are several ways to fix this. On some of the Air ride models you can put in regular springs and replace the Air bags. To work with what you have, you need to diagnose the bad parts and then make your decisions.
Your Air ride has a diagnostic plug like the kind you hear about for the engine. You need to take it to a Body shop or Independent or even a Dealer and see what parts you car needs. Some Autozones and Oreillys might have this specialized scanner for the Air ride.
The Air pump can be obtained used at Salvage yards. So can the Suspension bags and any switches you need. Some yards are now giving 1 year free exchange warranties. Others are 30days to 90days. You will need a Repair shop who is willing to use Used parts. But you may not have a bad pump with the other problems you are having. You can even get rebuilt Air bags.
You can expect the pump to be slow if the air is being released as fast as the pump is putting it in. There is an electric switch in each corner of your car which can bleed off the air. You may only have 1 bad switch. This is why an accurate Diagnosis is important to saving you money.
If anyone has jacked up your car without turning off the Air ride, it is very easy to throw the switches out of adjustment. You may only need to adjust and not replace the switches. The adjustment procedure needs to be done on a surface like the body shops use. This would be a verified flat surface or a Frame machine. If you had one wheel sagging it would be pretty easy to work on the one side. But with your symptoms it could be anything.
About the only thing you can do is look under the car while it is running and listen for escaping air. It is not going to be easy with the engine and pump running.
