Hello, Just like a tire you can mix a spray bottle of detergent and mist the airlines and bags on your car. The soapy mixture will bubble when you find the leak. Sometimes its just an "O" ring around where the sensor goes into an individual bag. Or it can be the housing of the sensor or an Airbag leak.

Just follow the airlines to the different components. There should be a Master Vent solenoid under the drivers front frame. It can be something as simple as a fitting backing out.

I hope you find my solution very helpful in tracing your problem.

Air compressor works...rear suspension low...just used air compressor to fill tire a few weeks ago...could this be related? We had never used it in over 8 years...


The air suspension has absolutely nothing to do with your tire pressures. If your rear suspension is low and you can hear the compressor running all the time, it is because you have a leak in your suspension system. You need to get it diagnosed and repaired as soon as possible. If you let it continue, it will burn-up your compressor, then it will be REALY EXPENSIVE to fix.

Air suspension drops on one side


Common problem. You have a slow leak. Just like a tire, the solution is to look for it, with a spray bottle of soapy water. All the lines, fitting, valves, etc., are suspect. The actual chambers are the only expensive parts. There are leak stop liquids you can try?

I cant find where the air suspension sytem is on my 1996 ford crown vistoria. The air bags on the rear tires will not inflate


make sure its turned on, the switch is in the trunk. The compressor is in RF area ahead of RF tire, the fuse which may be blown is in the fuse box at RF wheel under the hood. if the fuse is blown, its because the compressor has run too long trying to pump up the air bags which are leaking. it may need the bags and compressor, there are several companies that make springs for the rear to replace the bags.

IFYOU FIND THE AIR BAGS ARE LEAKING (USUALLY IS THE PROBLEM) JUST REPLACE IT. LIFT UP THE REAR REMOVE THE TIRE ,DISCONNECT THE PLASTIC LINE THAT GOES TO THE AIR BAG (push the little grommet pull the plastic hose) DISCONNECT THE WIRE CONNECTOR, AND REMOVE THE CLIP AT THE TOP OF THE AIR BAG (JUST PULL IT) AND REMOVE THE AIR BAG (REVERSE TO INSTALL IT)
(YOU CAN REMOVE THE AIR BAG IN ABOUT 40 MINUTES) EACH SIDE.( on ebay you can find replacement to a regular shocks) or air bags

My air suspension light came on and want go off


The warning light is advising you of a fault in the rear air suspension system. Is the car sitting level ? The switch in the trunk is ONLY TURNED OFF when you incur a flat tire in the rear tires and must jack up the rear of the car. IF NOT TURNED OFF the air suspension will over-extend with air . Hope this helps.
