2001 Lincoln Navigator Air Suspension

The rear of the truck is not lifting and it looks like the body is sitting right on the rear wheels. The check suspension light is not on. Is this something that I can repair or does it have to go to a dealer?

    I have the same problem. I can also hear it hum slash vibrate when at a stop or when first started. When i park the car and come back, the rear part is has gone down all the way to the rear tires. Could there be a leak? How did you solve your problem? Is it safe to drive around while doing this? Please let me know. Thank you.

I have the same problem with mine.   you need the sensors replaced.   it cost about $550  the sensors are in the rear of the suv somewhere.      
i took mine to the dealer for a diagnosis but couldnt afford to get it fixed.  
i had the same problem with a 2000 chevy tahoe.   the dealer relplaced the sensors and that fixed the problem.

don live in the real world, that suspension is never going to work right again. you are going to spend a ton of money, and no matter what you do something else will go wrong. big mercs, lincolns, BMW, caddies, land rovers, etc all sit in the same saggy swamp. there are still thousands of collapsed Peugeots sitting in barns since the 1970s across the land waiting for a real suspension fix.

take a long look at www.strutmasters.com and consider junking the air or hydraulic suspension system and trading up to a real one with springs and shocks.

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

Troubleshooting Suspension failure 2000 Lincoln Navigator


I have owned several air suspension vehicles. My Expedition was similar to yours. You may want to try the 4x4 switch because it will raise the body 1-2 inches higher. Checking its fuse would not hurt.

On most of my vehicles the suspension would work end to end, raising the front first. You could have 2 issues with the suspension. There should be valving to switch the air to the rear suspension after the front is up. I would wait longer for the rear to catch up.

If I had to guess why the front lifts first it would be to get the front off of the curbs and sidewalks when you park so the bottom doesn't drag.

There is a diagnostic plug for the air suspension and sometimes Autozone or Oreillys have the scanner for that special plug. If not, some alignment shops and all dealers would have it. Also Ford parts are often the same as Lincoln and cheaper., Someone may make aftermarket parts at a better price.

2001 lincoln navigator suspension went out, vehicle is sitting low on rear tire


Hopefully just needs to be reset, those air susp r expensive. Some susp come with a switch to turn on and off could be on the left or right rear back look for it turn off then on if that does not work, disconnect p bat terminal for 5 min then reconnect. Listen for suspension should make some noise.

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.
