LINCOLN CONTINENTAL SENSOR PROBLEM

1997 Lincoln Continental • 140,000 miles

The rear raises all the way up, (until too stiff to drive) and won't lower back down except when doing it manually by turning spring selenoid's to completey release air. Need to know if it's more likely the spring selenoid or one of the rear ride height sensors. I read through a similar question you previously answered, and you said that the Continental and towncar use the same system. Is the control module behind the glovebox, and the Diagnostic plug: right side of trunk behind trim panel, being a 1997 continental not a towncar? Thank you

This has to be scanned first to see what's wrong with it it uses the same aldl as everything elses. However if you need to fix it you may need a breakout box to check certain things in trunk for shorts. I would look at the height sensor. The rod breaks at times and you have this issue. Start with simple before going complicated
