      If the alternator drive belt is oily/worn/stretched - this could cause a low charge condition with the alternator - due to belt slippage. If the alternator output is low - this will not recharge the battery

      so check the belt first, well in this case change the belt instead of the pump?

      1990-1994 Town Car The module is located in the trunk, behind the air suspension switch. Pull back the trunk carpet and remove the 2 nuts that mount the air suspension module. Unplug the air suspension module and bolt it back in place.

      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

    I got in my car to go to work and the ride was very "bouncy" rear end is sitting as low as it can without touching tires
    No warning lights came on the compressor is no making it's usual noise was fine when I parked it the night prior, unsure what to do to troubleshoot.

      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..
