Check the height sensor, it attaches to the rear axle on the drivers side, I think! The ball end slips out of the axle mount. For saftey sake turn trhe switch off in the trunk, jack car up place stand under the car's frame do the work. Place car back on the ground, turn the switch back on, then start the car to raise the back.

I didnt say the sensor was bad, I said look for the sensor arm being detached from the axle! Only way to tell about air suspension codes is with a scan tool like Fords NGS tool to scan the codes, we are talking about a visible check, also does the compressor run? It wont if this arm is not hooked up!

Ok this is from a 92 that's as far back as I have catalogs for, but it should be the same, your, if it is the same will be on the left(drivers) upper arm, this is what I have for a photo.
