help with expedition suspension

7 posts in this topic

My 98 Ford Expedition's air ride suspension died, the compressor no longer works. Do any of you guys have any suggestions on where to bring it or how to fix it. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

MAKE SURE THAT IT IS YOUR COMPRESSOR, YOUR SHOCKS HAVE EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE COMPRESSOR WORKING, THERE ARE SENSORS IN THE SHOCKS AND IF THE SENSOR IS NOT PICKING UP A SIGNAL THE COMPRESSOR WILL NOT WORK.

I JUST REPLACED THE SHOCKS ON MY RIDE CONTROL AMD HAD THE SAME PROBLEM THAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT AND THE PROBLEM WAS RESOLVED,UNFORTUNATLY THE COST IS EXSPENSIVE.

My 98 did the same thing. It ended up being a resistor.

It could be a height sensor, the compressor, resistor, or module. More than likely the compressor took out the resistor. Make sure your on/off switch didn't get bumped and is off. Is the suspenion saging? Are you sure that the compressor is not working at all?

If you can get down around elk river, I have some buddies in service and parts. they said you can hook it up to a TECH 2 scanner and diagnose exactly what it is. pump or shock or sensor. Another cheaper solution is air ride brand air bag shocks. Replace the old shocks with the air rides.

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.
