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.

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
