It is possibly located under either one of the front guards, I had a 1990 ford fairlane (Australian) and that is where the Air Ride compressor was located in that.
They usually run dry and wont pump the Air into the system, I removed the 2 rear Air Shocks from mine and replaced them with normal air shocks that you pump up at the garage and never had any more trouble.

    The air ride pump or "compressor" for the rear air bags is located under the air filter housing. You must remove the filter housing completely, then remove the windshield washer bottle. Once removed there is a plastic cover over the compressor. There are three studs on the compressor which the nuts are under the car. Remove them and pull the compressor out of the hole. in order to remove the air line from the compressor there is a red ring on the line, push down on the red ring and pull the air line from the compressor. There is another hose connected to the pump which goes to a air filter simply pull the rubber hose off. Disconnect the electrical connector and reverse the process to install.

I need wire diagram for air ride on Lincoln town car 1997

It is usually not an electrical problem. IT is common for the system to blowout and drop. Many people instead of paying $1500 to fix just replace the system with a good pair of coil over shocks for about $300

Need help replacing air suspension compresoor for 1996 Lincoln Town Car

after working on those systems quite a bit,I really think it is better
to replace the air bags with a coil spring(they make a kit)
Only takes an hour or so,and the air ride problems will
be gone forever.Mine drives better with the conversion than it ever did with the air bags.

Inoperative air suspension The supply pump?, began to be more audible s short time before the system failed. I am assuming the supply pump failed, but have no idea where it is located or the cost of...

The suspension compressor is located below the air cleaner assembly.It also opened the fuse in the underhood fuse panel 30 amp. The cost depends on where you have repaired, the dealer will be more, but you get a better warranty on parts and labor.

1996 lincon town pump works and cuts off before airing up

I am new at the Air Suspension issue myself. My 96 is beginning to have some issues. But, have you had the Height Leveling sensor above the rear axle checked out? The position of this sensors 'arm' is what tells the system to turn on and off the Air Compressor in order to maintain a level ride height. From what I have read. these sensors wear out. A faulty sensor could be telling the compressor to kick off to soon.
