I HAVE A 98 CONTINENTAL AND I CAN HEAR AIR LEAKING OUT OF THE REAR PASSENGER AIR SYSTEM SOME WERE. HTE AIR BAG STILL INFLATS JUST DEFLATES REAL FAST AND IS MAKING MY COMPRESSER WORK OVER TIME. IS THIS A SIMPLE FIX OR SOMETHING MAJOR?
left rear of car sags until engine is started and then rises to acceptable level above tire. When the engine is turned off it deflates again.
Rear passenger side leaks slowly an sometimes it will stay up is it a hose leak or the air shock bag it keeps my air pump working alot
Air suspension has audible hissing leak. mostly noticeable after driving the car and stepping out. Also when approaching the car, the rear sags. Recently the "check ride control" message has come up in the driver information center.
I replaced fuse for the air ride suspension and two times the fuse kept blowing. The compressor stopped functioning and now the car is riding low.
