Mine was doing the same thing. Turned out I had air leaking from a bag and the pump would run to long and pop that fuse every time. I replaced with springs from strutmasters.com Came with instructions and cost $109. Took about 30 minutes. Was a lot cheaper than replacing the bags and I never have to worry about any part of that air bag system again. So if your pump is running for more than 3-4 minutes you may have the same problem I had.

I had a 1992 town car with the exact same problem and it turned out to be a worn out compressor overloading the circuit. The compressor is located on the drivers side inner fenderwell. A short would most likely blow the fuse instantly (or intermittently), but the compressor motor is the only component that draws any real current that will blow the fuse.

Hey
could be couple of think first- short in the wiring. You would have to use a short finder, multimeter or a power probe to trace the wiring and determine where your issue is, then repair the harness or replace the failed component.

04 LINCOLN NAVIGATOR AIR RIDE COMPRESSOR HAS NO VOLTAGE


Somewhere, ahead of the compressor, are relays and a fuse or two. Your Lincoln dealer should be able to tell you where to look, if you do not wish to take it to them.
I think under the hood is the first place to look, as that circuit is requiring a lot of current.
You have a black plastic cover over a black plastic box with fuses and circuit breakers in it under the hood, and you might find the air ride system named in that box with a corresponding fuse.
God bless your efforts.

Monte carlo blows cold air and overheats


It really runs hot within a minute of starting ?
An engine that runs hot in a few minutes is often having problems with the water pump or a blockage in the cooling system. The thermostat does not open until 195 degrees which takes 5 or 10 miles of driving.
During that time, the water pump should be circulating coolant in the block and the heater hoses.
A leaking head gasket should be putting extra pressure into the cooling system, and-or dumping coolant into the cylinders which would come out the exhaust pipe. But it should still take a few minutes for the engine to reach the boiling point of 240 degrees.

NO AIR


I doubt its a relay.
The high blower relay only comes into play on the high setting. You have a 40amp fuse for the blower relay, then a 30amp fuse for the other speeds. The 30amp fuse powers the fan switch, when you turn it to high it activates the high speed relay.
I would check for power at the blower motor on all speeds.

These trucks are bad to chaff wires.if it runs 15 -20 min. in park but blows the fuse within a few miles of driving you almost definitely have a wire shorting out. this can be tedious to find. good luck
