Question about 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis
What you need to do is go to a repair shop that can do a specific scan. This scan is for the Air Suspension. Of course a Dealer can do it, but I want to save you money. You will need to call around to places that do Alignment or Body work. They may have the correct scanner. Some Autozone and Oreillys do free scans on engines, but you would have to ask if they can do the Air Suspension.
Sometimes problems occur after someone jacks up the car without disabling the Air Suspension. There is a cutoff switch in the trunk, Drivers side next to the fuelpump switch. You can try flipping the switch ON, if you just had work done on your vehicle they may have turned it off.
There is a fuse in the fuse panel for this device, you can try checking it, but usually a problem would cause the fuse to fail and the problem needs to be fixed. There are simple switches which can be replaced one by one, which can return the pump to action.
This is why I suggest the scan, because it can find the problem quickly and the mechanic can verify it is fixed with another scan after the part is replaced. If you find it is too much $$$ to repair, there are some Spring shops which can replace the Air ride with regular springs. There are Salvage Yards that good body shops can get used parts from. This is alright because the rest of the parts on your car are also used. It will save you money.
I hope this answers your question to your satisfaction.
