There is a leak in air lines going to air suspension or one of the Air shock are leaking, check all lines/shocks for leaks while pump is ON using soapy water and look for air bubbles. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: REAR AIR BAG SUSPENION

I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at there conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. Airbags and compressors are constantly having to be replaced. Also something alot of people don't know is that theses air suspensions are not meant to be in temperatures above 90 Degrees or below 40 Degrees. That is most of the world. The temperature will cause you to replace alot of bags. and typically when your replacing a bag you are going to have to replace the compressor to because the bag had a hole or small crack in it causing the compressor to over work and it will die. I posted the link below so you can take a look http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!!

Rear Air Suspension won't air up


take the sensor arm loose and manually operate it, when it is up, it thinks the suspension is low. Spray the bags and hoses with soapy water to find any leaks, dawn dish detergent works well. repair any leaks. If no leaks manifest, take a hose loose and see if you are actually getting air pressure from the air pump. Just because it is running, doesn't mean it is supplying pressure.

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

Air bags suspension won't inflat. Checked all fuses & air suspension switch. What can the problem be?


Probably failed seal or air bag leaking air. Check again and try to see if this will do the trick. Sometimes pvc line could fail to deliver air to the bag too!

Air suspension not functioning back of truck sitting on wheels


Problem most likely 1 of 2 things.
  1. Most common is bad air springs- they will fill up but fail to hold air. 1 symptom is you will hear the air compressor constantly pumping air to try to keep the spring inflated
  2. Bad line from compressor to the air spring- this is less likely since it shouldn't impact the air spring's ability to hold the air once it's pumped up.
If the rear of the truck raises and settles back on the wheels after you turn the truck off then it's almost certain to be the air springs. Often referred to as air bags, they look like normal springs with the air bags inside.

If the rear of the truck doesn't raise at all, the line from the compressor is likely bad to the point that it won't fill the springs at all. If it turns out to be the springs, you should replace them in pairs since they often will go within months of each other. Another thing to consider is some Lincoln owners have opted to replace the air ride system with conventional springs.

2001 Escort ZX2. Where are the impact sensors loctaed for the front air bags? Also, where is the control module located?


AIR BAG (SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM) General Information The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) is designed to work in conjunction with the standard three-point safety belts to reduce injury in a head-on collision. WARNING
The SRS can actually cause physical injury or death if the safety belts are not used, or if the manufacturer's warnings are not followed. The manufacturer's warnings can be found in your owner's manual, or, in some cases, on your sun visors. Depending on your vehicle, the SRS may be comprised of some or all of the following components:
  • Driver's side air bag module
  • Passenger's side air bag module
  • Air bag diagnostic monitor computer
  • Left and right-hand radiator primary crash air bag sensor and bracket
  • Center cowl safing rear air bag sensor and bracket
  • Left-hand kick panel safing rear air bag sensor and brackets
  • Air bag warning indicator
  • Tone generator (internal to the air bag diagnostic monitor)
  • Electrical wiring
  • Air bag Electronic Crash Sensor (ECS)
The sensors in the car are designed to detect a severe frontal impact. When at least one of the primary crash sensors and the center cowl safing rear air bag sensor close at the same time, electric current flows to the inflator and ignites the chemicals. The chemicals burn rapidly in the metal container. This burning produces nitrogen gas and small amounts of dust, both the gas and dust are cooled and filtered during the air bag(s) inflation. The air bag(s) split the trim covers open while inflating. The air bag(s) then rapidly unfold and inflate in front of the driver or passenger. After the air bag(s) have inflated, the gas escapes through holes in the bag(s) and the they will deflate. prev.gif next.gif

The compressor quit is there a place to manually inflate the air bags until i get the replacement compressor


You will probably be able to find an air inflation port mounted on the rear axle near where the bags are mounted. Make sure the kill switch for the bags has not failed keeping power from going to the compressor.
