You need to have a scanner attached to the test plug for the Air Suspension. It takes a scanner which has more functions than most scanners and you may need to call around if you do not want to go to a Dealer.

The Master Vent solenoid is usually positioned under the drivers front frame and will have air lines going to it. Each suspension bag has a solenoid on it. You can mix up some soapy water and use a spray bottle of detergent and mist the bags and sensors to find leaks.

The doorjams and rear hatch use contact switches to complete the circuit for the Air ride system. The system is designed to lower the vehicle when a door or hatch is opened. If any of the doors or hatches are not closed, the system will not inflate and the air will bleed off when the pump runs.

Usually you will get a dash indication for DOOR AJAR. Your hatch may not send a signal. If you have had any lifting done on the car, the Suspension was suppose to be turned off. This may be what damaged the system.

As Electrical diagnosis is expensive, the quickest way is the cheapest. Having only the correct part replaced is also the cheapest. Check your rear cargo door switch, soap the underside Air System parts, and you will not have much money tied up into testing. After that call to find the proper test tool. Autozone and Oreillys may have the better scanner to loan out or find a Repair facility or Dealer and go from there.

I hope my solutions are very helpful in fixing your Navigator. You might want to ask about Aftermarket parts such as the Vent solenoid.

Rear air suspension doesn't inflate everytime vehicle is started


My Buick had this problem and we found the pump was worn out. It just would not blow up when trying to run. They wanted a lot of money to replace it and the shocks.so I bought a kit that the air line hooks underneath the license plate Now about once every three months I use my air compressor to pump it up. My old air shocks lost air all the time. My new air shocks stay blowed up for over three months.

could just be a seal on the air line itself, or possibly a whole in the line or one of th eleveling air bags. gong thru the water should'nt have any effect on it,unfortunately these are just like any other part, or seal they just eventually wear out.

I have a 2001 lincoln navigator the rear suspension is down i hear the pump come on but it will not raise by the way i had the pump replace about 8 months ago what could be the problem and can i fix i


The air bags commonly go bad on these trucks as well as the Expeditions. They are called Air Springs. I sell better quality ones than those sold at auto part stores and they are also a bit cheaper than dealer parts. But either way the problem is you have bad air springs.

Forgot toi turn the air suspension off when


Remove battery, remove windshield washer bottle, remove air compressor and disconnect both air lines from the compressor dryer. Make sure compressor electrical wiring is plugged in, install battery, turn suspension switch to ON, turn ignition switch to the ON position, close all door and the compressor should come on and completely lower the whole truck. Once the truck is completely down, turn the ignition OFF, remove battery and connect both air lines. Install battery ensure electrical wiring is plugged in, turn ignition switch to ON, the compressor should come on and raise the vehicle to the correct ride height.

2001 Lincoln Navigator Air Suspension


the auto leveling is standard on the navigator.
first you have to understan that the auto leveling system is on front and rear of these trucks.
one way to tell is do you hear the pump running and do you have air in the front bags. and if you do you need a rear level sensor.
