AIR SUSPENSION PROBLEM

1996 Lincoln Continental

Suspension problem
1996 Lincoln Continental V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 133000 miles

After lifting the car to change brake pads the car is sitting all the way down and will not rise back up. The compressor is running, but will not lift. There is a check suspension( air ride) trouble light on. I do not have a diagnostics tool and the car cannot be driven the way it is. I would really appreciate an answer that does not involve a diagnostics tool. Thanks

Hi
Well air ride suspension needs to be turned off belive switch in trunk. To prevent damage to air bags. If vehicle is raised all four air bages are damaged and will not hold up car. Warnings are in owners manual and I think underhood and/or trunk lid.
Sorry no good news
Thanks for donate
