2000 town car: I get the Air Suspension light to turn

Customer Question

How do I get the Air Suspension light to turn off on a converted 2000 Towncar?

Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

Simply cut the dark green with the light green stripe wire and put some black tape on each end. Afterwards, turn the suspension switch back on. If done correctly, you will NEVER see a light again.

Relist: Incomplete answer.
I've waited a very long time and had incorrect and incomplete answers. I would like my question to be answered correctly.

The only way to get this to stay off will be to have your local ford dealer reprogram the pcm to let it know that the car nolonger has the air ride system. Cutting the yellow wire in the trunk for the switch would only make the light stay on. Ford will reprogram thi so the light does not come back on again, but it will cost you around $120.00.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I finally got to Pugmire Lincoln service director, and he said there's no way to program the computer to eliminate the air suspension display.

Do you have any other suggestions?
Expert:  Kalamykid replied 5 years ago.
That is rather odd as I just had to do this with a 2001 that the customer wanted the aor ride removed and marshal mize ford in hixson tennessee reprogramed the computer for me so the light would not come on at all. It cost me $125.00 to have them do it. Do you have another ford dealership near you that youcan call and see if they can do it for you? Many times the techs will not do any programing other than what is set forth by ford.
