Hello, I have a 93 Mark viii and it has an air leak in my front passenger side airbag and I was about to order 4 new bags along with new control arms and such. However I just noticed that my compressor is no longer coming on for the 90 seconds and then shutting off to give the "check air ride" warning. Now when I turn the car on, the warning comes on right away and the compressor never comes on. I checked fuses in both boxes that had anything to do with suspension/compressor and all were okay. I am wondering if I have burnt the compressor motor out by running it with the leak and what would be the easiest way to test it before buying a new one; I now realize that I should have turned the air ride switch off before driving it. I also live in a smog exempt area and am looking for a set of headers, any advice would be appreciated; thanks!
front and rear bags go down when parked a few days. after starting it back up, front bags will pump up, but back bags wont. Called my mech., he said turn button in the truck off for 15 seconds, ( I turned it off for 3 minutes), then turn ignition back on. I turned engine back on and pumps working now, and everything cool., so far
Our 96 Lincoln MKVIII Rear Air Ride System went down. We got it converted to normal Shock coil system and the next day (yesterday and today) the Front Doesn't rise up and in fact rides extremely Low as did the Rear End did prior to the Conversion. Mywife thinks the Shop switched the systems yet they rechecked it yesterday per our request. Prior to the Conversion the front was working properly. Do we need to switch the Front Air Ride System to Coils as well?
