I have a 1998 and I was having the same problem. Your problem is a solenoid located on the frame under the driver's door. The part # is 1L1Z-5311-AA. It is the solenoid that controls the rear fill of the air suspension system. The only way to find the problem was to have diagnostics done and the error code should be 1846 or something like that. the part is easy to replace. If you need any assistance with those steps write me back.

I have a 98 Lincoln Navigator I came out one night and the rear air ride was sitting on the wheels. The compressor was checked and said to be ok..any suggestions. I called a local dealer and they were no help I ask the location of the relay and the control unit but noone knows. The service manual I purchased is no help.

I heard this gunshot type sound, and checked under the hood, and found the top had blown off the compressor dryer and the little clear pellets had blown out as well. Do I need the WHOLE compressor, or just the black cylinder??
Thanks for the help, I have to order it ASAP.

Don't waste your money at the dealer like I did for this part. Under the car behind the passenger side headlight the relay is secured by two screws with a big plug going into it. I think it would have taken my 9 year old daughter 5 minutes to change it out. Trust me give it a shot yourself.

My wife took it to the dealer and they said was the PUMP and the RELAY and ask for $ 1k. I'll replace the relay and see how it goes!

If you have the actual step, could you please post them. I have the same problem of my rear end sitting on the rear tires, but the front is fine. My compressor work sometimes, so I am thinking that it probably the relay or the leveling switch.

Does anyone know if you can temporarily bypass the replay to force the compressor to lift the rear end up?

I have a 03 Nav and I just replaced one of the air struts on it, because I just look at it from the back and make sure that it is not leaning after it has stopped from letting down, but it was so I had to replace that air strut and it is fine now. You will know when it has finished letting down, because you can here the pump whe it stops.

I replaced the relay only ($ 107 Ford Warner Robins GA) and the problem was resolved. There a way to by pass the relay , but 10 days later the suspension was down again.
