This means that one or more of the air springs is leaking, they last about 75-100,000 miles, less on poor roads.

The buzzing is probably the compressor. You may have a bad air line somewhere. Or, you may have a bad solenoid. These can be check with an ohmmeter.

Your air bags are leaking and sounds like your air compressor doesn't work. Suspect new air bags and a new air compressor. And/Or ride height sensor located at the drivers side fender well above the controll arm.

thew motor you hear running is the compressor for the air ride or leveling system. if you dont hear the motor check the fuses. also there is a level sensor under the truc k in the rear and should be hooked to the rear end.

I have 94'crown vic with rear air ride suspension problems. The back end won't rise. Any help is appreciated.


Start by checking the fuses for the air compressor for the rear suspension. these will be listed in your owners manual. Failing this it could be the compressor motor or wiring to the motor, unless you can hear the compressor working. If the compressor is running but not adjusting the back of the car then you have an air leak in one of the shocks or air lines.
if you find it is a fuse, also listen for the compressor motor running and an air leak, if the system is running constantly to make up for a leak , that may be what blew the fuse.

Hope this helps

How do i reset the SERVICE RIDE CONTROL message that comes up every time i turn on my truck once i've made sure the shocks and compressor are in good shape


THIS LIGHT IS ON BECAUSE THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE AIR SUSPENSION RIDE CONTROL, IT WILL GO OFF AS SOON AS U REPAIR THAT PROBLEM WHICH IS MOST LIKELY A LEAKING AIR SUSPENSION AIR BAG, THERE IS NO RESET AS THE RIDE CONTROL DOESN''T HAVE A MEMORY AND CAN'T STORE CODES, IT ONLY COMES ON WHEN A PROBLEM IS PRESENT IN REAL TIME.

Air suspension is controlled by the compressor in your engine compartment.  The compressor runs when the suspension is not level.  Either because you have loaded the car with exceptional weight and the system is now adjusting the ride, or you have a leak in the system, or you have a bad sensor.
If you have a leak, the most likely culprit are the air suspension bags, the air suspension solenoids or possibly the lines to them.

I don't work for either of them.  I own a 96 TC and have replaced my air suspension with coil springs form Strutmasters.  Work GREAT and I have no more air suspension problems.  Rides just as good too.  You can't tell the difference.
