Hi, My 91 TC does the same thing, I had to replace the compressor and dryer once, but I believe that it has something to do with the relay in the fuse box by the battery, it's the big square looking gizmo, use the label under the lid for the correct relay, I replaced one, and it seemed to help, but my light still comes on. I have found a aftermarket suspension system for these Town Cars. It is a set of heavy duty replacement springs, which replace the bags. I intend to buy them, they are under $200.00 not counting installation. Many reviews on these parts say the can barely tell the difference, and it eliminates the pump system completely, just how, I'm not sure. I have a friend with limos having same probs, says he will replace bags with springs for me as soon as I get $$$ for parts! I don't know if this will help, but good luck! Michael

Why would the air suspension light come on and the airbags do not leak on a 93 Lincoln Town Car?

You should check the air suspension switch, located on the passenger's side of the trunk. If the switch is off, the light will come on, also check the air suspension fuse. If both of these are OK, then the pump could possibly be going out.

What do you have to do to de-activate the air suspension light and system after converting the air suspension to coil springs?

There is an air suspension switch in the trunk on the passenger side. You can turn it of . there is also an air suspension fuse under the hood in the fuse box on the passenger fender well. you can remove that 30 amp fuse also. in the fender well inside the trunk on the passenger side behind the suspension switch. remove the carpet off the side. there is a module with two conections, one grey and one black one. remove the black one. there is one green, with light green wire. cut that wire and reconnect the harness back on. the air suspension light on the dash will go out. this is for 1994 and before Lincoln town cars. on 1995, the module is behind the glove compartment. do the same like on 1994. cut the green wire and the air suspension light will go out. this is the best way to disable the whole system.

Why is your check air suspension light on?

Possibly a slow leak in one of your air suspension bags or the hoses that run between the compressor (located way down in your engine compartment, in front of the engine.) OR, if you had the air suspension setup replaced with a more traditional coil spring and shocks suspension, the air suspension light will come on unless you cut the appropriate wire from the control computer (located ahead of the glove box under your dash, reachable if you pull out the glove box.) An alternative that is NOT advised is to remove the fuse that controls the air suspension (assuming you have had coil springs installed.) That is not a good solution as it also disables the variable power steering control, and you end up with maxmum power steering boost at all times, way too little resistance to my liking. Hope that helps. If you HAVE gone over to coil spring suspension and want to know what wire to cut to turn off the air suspension idiot light, email me and I'll try to dig up the info for you.

What would cause the air suspension on a 1998 Lincoln Navigator not to work?

there can be many different problems but it could be a bad relay switch to check it get on the floor on the passenger side and check to see if the air suspension relay switch is on, try that for now, usually if someone uses a jack to raise the car and the tires have to come off the ground,they switch it off, so the height sensors don't mess up. but it this causes the check suspension light to come on.
