Question about 1999 Ford Expedition

2 Answers

I Have a 1999 Ford Expedition(Eddie Bauer) and I cannot find out why The Rear Suspension Air bags wont inflate. The bags don't have any Leaks, I'm assuming the compressor is working because the front of the truck still raises just fine, I don't have any blown relays or fuses. What else am i missing ??..Please help

Could be a leak in the air lines or in the solenoids if you're not seeing one in the air bags. This unfortunately is a sign that your troubles are just beginning. Once you get whatever's broken fixed it is going to be one thing after another. Lots of people choose to, instead, switch their ride over to coil springs using a conversion kit like this one. It's a fraction of the cost and you should just be able to forget about it for the rest of the time you own the vehicle: 1997 2002 Ford Expedition 4 Wheel Air Suspension Conversion Kit 4WD FX14B...

I believe it has to b reset / retrained by dealer or mechanic who has ability to read what the vehicle is or isn't doing. If you don't hear the compressor running constantly, you most likely don't have a leak, basically it'll run long enough to level up the vehicle and you shouldn't hear it again. try and dissconnect the battery, for a minute or so try it again.

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

Where are suspension airbags located on 1999 ford expedition Eddie Bauer so I can check for leaks?


Front or rear ? Either way rear are on axle just inside leaf springs and the front should be just in from tires going up to inside wheel well .

I have a 1999 ford expedition Eddie bauer and my air ride suspension pump is coming on about every 10 minutes or so.this is not normal.what's wrong? What do I check first?


Your air suspension is leaking, could be a air bag or line or a fitting or a dump valve. Get a spray bottle full of soapy water and start spraying down the air ride components and watch for bubbles.

Rear Air Suspension won't air up


take the sensor arm loose and manually operate it, when it is up, it thinks the suspension is low. Spray the bags and hoses with soapy water to find any leaks, dawn dish detergent works well. repair any leaks. If no leaks manifest, take a hose loose and see if you are actually getting air pressure from the air pump. Just because it is running, doesn't mean it is supplying pressure.

Back end of my 2001 Ford Expedition FWD, Eddie Bauer, was dragging. Had diagnostic test run and found out it needed a new air ride compressor. Had compressor installed, but compressor continues to run...


The compressor should only run until the rear suspension reaches the desired height. If it continues to run after the suspension has raised to ride height then you may have a leaking air bag/solenoid or line. If you dont have any leaks it is possible the EVO(air suspension module} or relay is at fault.

What is a solenoid;


the solenoid sits at the top of the air spring and is connected to the air hose that inflates the air spring.
you untwist it to remove it from the air spring. it unscrews in 2 steps normally as a safety so it doesn't come off under high pressure..

The rear suspension is down on my 1999 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer. The cause: while out in the woods I came across a small dip which cause my back left wheel to lift off the ground. The suspension...


I had a 1999 Expedition. When you put the 4x4 on it raises the vehicle an extra inch or 2.
It may help to turn the 4x4 off. Two wheel drive is a lower air setting.
Your original pump may still be good. The problem can be in the front. The compressor is not filling the front suspension to the cutoff point. It will lift the rear after the front end is at running height. Since you lost the front end first, the remaining air bled out there and then the rear came down. Once you shut down the car the suspension was done, all the air was let go.
There are adjustment solenoids on the body but you need someone qualified to repair this.
