I had the air bags replaced on my 1995 Lincoln Town Car and the check suspension light keeps comming on. I was told the computer had to learn where to set car, it has been over a Month and am still having the problem.
Could anyone help?

If the lifted the car for some reason just to change the air bags I dont know why they would lift it but if they did and know what they are doing they turned off the air ride and mabey forgot to turn it back on there is a swich in the trunk if the didnt know what they were doing and lifted the car and didnt swich it off it could have blown the air bags on the struts

are you talking they replaced air bags as in the steering wheel or the ones on the struts?

They replaced the rear suspension(Struts) air bags, the 1995 model only had them in the rear.

Had rear air struts replaced and the check suspension alarm is going off.
Reset switch in trunk, cycled ignition switch several times and nothing seems to help.
Is there anyone willing to share information on how to fix this problem?

Had the strut airbages replaced because they were leaking and badly cracked up, was diagnosed by mechanic and replaced by him.
The check suspension light would come on ocasonialy and the car was sitting low in back because of the leak the air motor was running almost all the time.

I have been trying to get him to do that. I don't think he knows how.

It is an independent and yes I have spoken with the owner operator and he is supposed to fix the problem but won't give a time frame as to when he will work on it again.
I thought I could find some information that would help. Is there anything that needs to be reset after the install or what could cause the problem?
He has read the codes and nothing shows up.

Problem has been solved. The solonoid that controles the venting and pressure was defective on the vent size. Replaced and working fine.
Thank all that assisted.
