How to Reset a Lincoln Town Car's Air Suspension

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

The Lincoln Town Car comes with an air-suspension system known as "Air Ride." If you are experiencing problems with the air-suspension system, consider resetting it by turning it off, then back on. This may cure an intermittent problem. If it does not, you may have further problems with the system that require the assistance of a dealer. Over time, the air bags that level out the system may fail and require replacement.

1

Shut down your Lincoln Town Car. Push the trunk release switch located on the bottom part of the driver-side door panel.

2

Step to the rear of the vehicle and open the trunk. Inspect the trunk lining on the driver side. You'll see a plastic switch marked "On" and "Off."

3

Push the switch to "Off" to shut down the Town Car's air-suspension system.

4

Push the switch the "On" to turn the air-suspension system back on. Close the trunk.
