If the air bags are set on the high setting and will not go down with car off, then likely the compressor is stuck or the switch that activates the compressor is bad. The compressor and switch should be behind one of the liners in the trunk.

Check the ride level height sensor on the rear axle to see if it is fastened correctly to sense correct height.

May need a new sensor or wiring to it should be checked.

if you alter the standard ride height where standard travel shocks are installed , you have to alter the shocks to accommodate the difference in travel for the shocks
2" higher = 2 "longer shocks or 2"' lower =2 " shorter shocks next use a shorter bump stop for the arms so that the stop is not hit on the slightest bump
remember that the engineers design the car for maximum stability and ride comfort and when you decide that you are not happy and change it then stability , road handling and comfort all go out the window

I live in south Fl, and when the temp goes below 65 a message appears Air suspension fault and the ride is very bumpy. When it warms up, it rides fine! Whats up?? Thank-you!


the only thing will cause the fault light to come on is the pressure in the retention tank located in the trunk underneath the spare tire...,once the pressure drops,then the suspension pump relay makes the pump refil the tank...the cause of this is usually a leaking shock...normally they will leak around the upper caping...one sign is that the car will be lower overnite then normal or if it sits for a long period.if the front is lower then its a front shock..the bumpy ride is the fault system lowering the car from the leak while your riding..

I would check your tire pressure, if your running 60 psi it's going to be a bumpy ride, lower the air pressure to 35 psi and see if it makes a differance, does the truck move up and down when you jump on the bumpers or is it stiff ?

The rear of my truck drops and the ride gets real bumpy. Also my stabilizer track light turned on saying it needs to be serviced


Hi, those have air bags (air ride) and one or both of the air bags has a hole in it and is leaking out,they have a pump that fills them up with air but when the bag goes bad the pump will fill it,then it leaks out, and back and forth. you just need to replace the faulty suspension air bag. or e-bay sells kits to eliminate the air ride and replace with springs. good luck. yz-maniac....

You should perform a test of the struts/shocks or have them checked to see if they are leakiing or just worn out. The biggest factor in your ride would be that.

Additionally, make sure you air pressure in the tires isn't too high. Generally somewhere around 30 pounds cold is a more comfortable ride than at 32 pounds cold. More air pressure saves fuel but can make for a rougher ride.

Good Luck

Air ride sensors and lower ball joints have gone bad in my 2004 lincoln navigator. I can wiggle the three senors and the air ride error message will disappear, but returns when riding over bumpy roads....


Are the sensors or connections dirty? I would clean them. You can also use a pliers and tighten the female end of sensor and place it back in the connector.

Air ride control system


The compressor is under the hood on the passenger side near the radiator support. the air bags are large round rubber cylinders.

Stuck in high position


On this model vehicle the rear shockers should have air bags to keep car at normal ride height, when load changes.
The air bag can sometimes become caught between inner and outer tubes of shocker when car is raised and lowered quickly.
You will need to jack car up from tow hitch or frame to lower rear axle, this will unfold air bag, slowly lower car, with ignition on, this will make sure air compressor is filling air bags as they take the load.
Hope this is helpful, MMP
