      Lincoln Dealers for 15 years have problems with that system

      Most people suggest the first time you have air ride issues with
      any Navigator over 6 years old -you completely remove the OE
      air struts & replace with conventional coil overs

      Those are avail from at least 4 or more mfg's

      You can swap them out & in yourself then have it
      aligned just to be sure the ride height is the same

      Nothing you can do yourself to diagnose that &
      some shops don't work on any Lincolns for many reasons

      You could check fuses & check for codes but those codes will
      be in a module only professional tools can get to

      Two things:
      Why are you using it since it is knee high? Could ruin many things driving it that way

      And it will cost a bundle to even diagnose that system

      Possibly the suspension control relay, the air suspension compressor, or a leak in any one of the air suspension components.

      Several possibilities; faulty suspension control relay, fault in the air suspension compressor, or a leak in any one of the air suspension components for the front - including the front struts / shock absorbers or O-rings / seals..

      Check these items as first steps; air pressure in all four tires, tire condition, tire balancing, miles / years since last shock absorber change (change all shocks if over 50-70k miles). Please post a reply with these results.

    Suspension Deflates when vehicle is turned off
    A few months ago I replaced my battery and ever since then the car will intermittently (about every other time I drive it) deflate and let all the air out of the air ride when the vehicle is turned off. I can increase the chances of it staying up if I put the car in ...

    I have a 2009 Lincoln TC with 235\60R\17 tires on it and would like to use a real tire for my spare.
    I have a 2009 Lincoln TC with 235\60R\17 tires on it and would like to use a real tire for my spare. A stock wheel is far to expensive for me so I was wondering what other wheels such as Mercury, Ford or any other company's for that matter might fit.

    I keep blowing the fuse belonging to the Air Suspension".
    It occurs when I replace the fuse, the fuse blows within 50 miles causing my "Check Air Suspension" to come on..

      Your leveling compressor is drawing to much amperage blowing your fuse.

    I keep blowing the fuse belonging to my "Check Air Suspension".
    It occurs when I replace the fuse, then taking maybe 50 miles. I have tried putting the fuse in when the car is cold and sitting..Still no help.

    Steering is hard almost as if no power steering
    Steering is hard all the time except when in certain turn situations. It has fluid but it doesn't seem as if the fluid is circulating.

      More than likely your power steering pump is weak. Replace pump and bleed out air.
