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!
