Question about Lincoln Navigator

1 Answer

I have a 2003 Navigator that had an air suspension problem so I switched over to the Arnott spring coil conversion to eliminate any further erosion of my bank account trying to revive the air ride. One thing I haven't been able to determine how to circumvent or turn off however is the "Check Suspension" light that still illuminates on my dashboard monitor. Is there a way to turn this off permanently while leaving the other systems monitoring functions active?

Hi, there is a switch for the air suspension either underneath the glovebox, passenger side under the dashboard, right hand side of firewall. That switch should turn it off.

If your check suspension light is on more than likely you have a leak in that air ride system. These cars are notorious for their failing air systems, a good solution to this problem is to visit Strutmasters.com You will order your conversion kit from Strutmasters, it comes with instructions on all of the install procedures and the ride light.

Reset air shock


If you have seen lower back several times but the car raised by itself before, then you have to replace air spring. I replaced those with Arnott air spring.
If you had this problem for the first time, your air spring will be fine. If you have 4 corners air spring and the front one blows air in and out, your pump is okay.
Then I will first replace air suspension relay which costs $30. And you will have to check air hose connection. Finally you could try to replace air pump.

2003 Range Rover air suspension. Help please!!


If the bag hasnt completely failed (punctured or worn to leaking) they can come "unseated" from the base at the bottom of the "bellow" or bag. Not very common but possible. Alternatives to dealer parts and installation checkout ARNOTT air springs. The bag alone runs about $100. If you can afford it replace both fronts with the ARNOTT new generation one piece airspring. The are easy to install and offer little or no headache. Lastly, if you are a fan of the unsurpassed comfort of your Range Rover air-ride suspension, dont let anyone talk you into the coil spring conversion. Its not the same level of comfort and you will feel a big difference in handling. Good luck!

Front air suspension not working


Or for under $400 you can buy a coil spring conversion kit from a company like
Arnott. Look for coil spring conversion kit exclusively designed for the Lincoln Mark VIII. The kit converts the entire vehicle to a reliable coil spring/strut suspension system. Also look for a kit the required no special tools and comes with detailed installation instructions.

2004 Lincoln nave, rear wheels jacked up high, front wheels normal, rides real rough??? any thoughts???? Thanks,


Replace the air suspension with conventional shock/strut
conversions. The Air Ride System is not worth investing
time and money ,after the vehicle is 5 years old.
Too expensive to maintain ,and too difficult to diagnose

Next time buy the Ford version of the vehicle

My suggestion to you and all the other folks leaving questions on this board about collapsed air suspension systems in luxury cars is to fix that one by replacing it with a real spring and shock system which you can buy at www.strutmasters.com if it is economically feasible, then sell it and avoid air suspensions systems like the plague. There are legions of old 70s Citroens still sitting idle 30 years later on collapsed air suspensions systems in garages and barns all over the country which cars the buyers can't let go because they cost so damn much. Get a coleman air mattress and use it every day, see how long it really lasts.

I have the same problem with my 2003 Lincoln Navigator. It real low when it is under 35 degrees out side. When it's warm no problem at all with the air suspension. Was there a recall on the 2003 Lincoln...


The thing that most people don't know about air suspension is that the airbags are not meant to be in temperatures below 40 degrees and about 90 degrees. This affects Navigators more than I would like to mention. You will start having problems only when you are in those temperatures but then it will cause permanent damage. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and checking out the conversion kits. They are powder coated American made steel coil springs. They are guaranteed to last the life of your car and can withstand any weather. I posted the link below so you can take a look. http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm Hopefully this will help you Brent
