I would re-install them myself, I liek them better, but you can try to find the air suspension control module. It is usually mounted on the AC/Heater box and it will have a black connector and a gray connector. Unplugging the black connector will turn off the “check air suspension light” but it will also disable your power steering tension (variable assist steering) control on the left side of the steering column. So after you unplug the black connector you need to remove the dark green/light green wire pin from the connector and then reconnect that black connector to the module. That will disable only the check air suspension light. Or to make quick work of it you can just identify that black connector to the module and cut the green wire. And be sure to isolate that wire because the “check air suspension light” will come on if it touches ground.

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

Last night we came outside to see that our 2003 lincoln navigator suspesion had dropped completely.Is there a button or switch to activate this back to normal or does this mean the suspension broke ?Please...


Air suspensions on Lincolns...the bags are good for about 8 years, and this is 2011, soooo...but, there are a few things you can try. When you start it, do you hear the compressor running? If not, check the fuses and relay for the compressor, and there is a shut-off switch and reset button in the rear (check your owners manual) that may have tripped-try resetting it to see if that is all that is wrong. Is it down on all four corners, or just the front/back? All four probably is a little more involved, but if it is just one end, it is usually a damaged bag (cracks in the folds), an open soilenoid, or a timed-out compressor. If there is an air ride light on while the car is running, it is almost always an issue with the compressor itself.

Air bags quit working


I assume you mean the suspension air bags. They are an absolute nuisance......failure items include the compressor, eveling sensors (several) and the bags themselves. An easy and cheap fix is just to replace them with steel springs. The job should take about an hour and the springs will cost about $50 used from a savage yard, or you can get new ones at any auto parts store.

Jack the vehicle up and set on jack stands with both rear wheels off the ground. Perform the following one side at a time: Remove the rear wheel and tire, remove the shock absorber from the lower bracket. Remove the keeper pin at the top of the air bag that secures the bag to the frame bracket. Push down on the axle and pull the bag toward you. Unhook the air line and sensor wiring and tape them anywhere on the frame crossmember so they won't rattle. Push the new steeel spring up into the frame cavity and compress it enough to clear the spring pad on the axle and it will seat itself on the pad. Repeat the operation on the other side.

This solves the air bag probem permanently. The air suspension warning light will stay lit on the dash, and that can be turne off by removing a wire from the cowl connector. You will have to see tthe correct Ford Wiring manual for that vehicle to find which one to remove.

I have just competed the spring change as described above on my 98 Lincoln Navigator and the ride quality and load carrying capacity has not suffered.

Good luck!

2001 Navigator rear suspension sagging. While


It sounds like one of your air bags could have blown. I would check them first. I would also suggest checking into a replacement non air conversion kit from Strutmasters. I replaced the air system on my 2002 Navigator and saved a lot of time, money and headaches.The lines on my navigator had holes in them and I replaced the compressor twice before I realized it. Very costly. Avoid all the hassle and check out Strutmasters.

Non-functioning air suspension system


First check for power to pump with a test light. Check the air ride level switch under the car towards the back.This switch activates the pump. If no power than possible bad air ride switch.
