On top of each air bag is a electrical valve that serves as a relief valve that allows air to be exhausted when activated. The valve senses the amount of air pressure within the air bag to keep both sides equal. These valves are operated via a leveling sensor that is attached to the body of the car and to the rear axle by a movable arm. When the rear of the car drops because of an increased load, the arm is pushed up, turning on the air compressor and filling the air bags to level the car. When the load is removed and the arm moves down, indicating that the back of the car has risen, the sensor opens the valve on the air bags and allows air to escape, lowering the car.

Why won't rear end raise up ?


I have a 2000 Lincoln Town car, had the same problem, it was the rear air suspension/shocks. They are air bags basically that levels your car and it cost about $300.00 for each at the dealer for parts and install but it also has its own motor that inflates and deflates these air bags and I also had to replace that and that cost over $400.00 installed at the dealer.

Rear air suspension


The air system does not lower when you get out, it levels the car and stays level, but is you put weight in trunk and people sitting in the back seat and the car lifts to level out with the weight and then you remove all the weight and rear end is to high up then there is a problem.
These bags do not lift that high, if you hear the solenoids make sure it is not lower , measure.Also, the release of the air is very slow, make sure it is not lower, if you hear the solenoids open the car may be lowering very slow. check the height.If you are sure its not lowering then you may be correct in saying the level sensor may be bad. the only other part would be the solenoids but i would start with the level sensor as the air is going into the bags.
I quick test to check solenoids at bags is to start car and go rear the rear and locate the sensor, remove the arm from the control arm and bring it down so computer thinks car is to high and see if air is released. caution don"t stay under the car as it will lower down slowly. if it starts to lower then turn key off and reconnect lever and replace sensor.there is a company we use that is real good at this air bag system and prices are good with quality parts.http://www.arnottindustries.com/part_LINCOLN_Air_Suspension_Parts_yid2.html

How can you tell your air compressor trunk switch is not working in a 97' lincoln town car


is the car sagging inthe rear?? bags deflated?? the switch shuts off the comressor so when we jack it up on the hoist it doesnt blow the bags(they are the rear shocks) try tripping the switch off and on to see if it will reset, check for a fuse if the bags have been leeking the compressor would have beeen running for a long time (while driving) and may also have burnt out . there is also a ride height switch under car(senses load to level car if trunk filled with stuff) that may have bent or broken... pop switch out and jump across contacts (trunk switch) if comperssor good it should inflate bags , test light to
confirm power to switch (blown fuse)
good places to start auto wreckers for parts if needed

My rear air bags are too high and will not deflate. The sensor is connectod ok on the rear arm. How can I deflate it manually. It is on a 1994 mark VIII


you can remove the rear lines at the air bags to deflate. most likely the problem is the air suspension control module is not turning the venting valve on to release the air from the bags.

2006 Lincoln Town car rear suspension problem


The compressor will only inflate once or twice and only within a half hour of the ignition being turned off. If the bags deflate over night there is a leak in the bag and will probably need to be replaced. If you get under the car and take a look at them you will likely see deep cracks in them, specifically around where they fold.

REAR AIR SHOCKS


First, you may have leaks in your bags, causing your suspension to drop. The other possibility is that your rear suspension level sensor is faulty, causing the suspension to readjust itself incorrectly.

Driver side air bag suspension will not stay inflated on my 94


Check the sensor located on the rear A-arm, I think it is what send the signal to the compressor telling it to raise or lower the suspension.
