AIR RIDE SYSTEM

1996 Lincoln Mark VIII • V8 2WD Automatic • 180,000 miles

My car is having trouble starting and I need to get it towed to the shop. Since the car will not kick over the air ride system has lowered itself down completely. Usually when I start the car it raises up. My question is is there a way to get the car to raise up a little so that I can get it towed in? How can I raise it if it's not kicking over?

The engine needs started.

Of course it needs started- I'm asking if there is a way to lift it without starting it.

No

The engine DOES NOT need to be running for the air ride system to work. But the battery needs to have enough power to run the system. Try to put a battery charger on the car for awhile and try it then.
