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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
