Leave the car running. Raise the end that you want to lower to where the vehicle is just above level. This will make the height sensor tell the control module that the end of the vehicle you raised is too high. The control module will open the solenoids in the struts, and open the solenoid at the compressor. Once the air is successfully purged. About 2 minutes. You can then shut the vehicle off. Turn the air ride switch off. Lower the vehicle.

It comes on long enough for the shocks to fill up and then shuts off. Is your car raised when it shuts off? If the shocks are in good shape without leaks, that's usually the time the compressor takes to pump up the shocks.

Good luck doing that yourself since Continentals have an electronic air bag suspension, your better off bringing it to a mechanic, if you bust one of those air bags its $400 per bag, my advise take it in. Not all lincoln continentals have air ride.

First, you must know that the Lincoln Towncar does not have air shocks. Instead, it has air bags. What this means is that in place of steel springs your Lincoln has rubber cushions that are filled with air, known as air bags. This link will take you to the answer you seek:
