Replaced air springs, compressor is working, but it will not

Customer Question

Hi, replaced air springs, compressor is working, but it will not raise up
JA: How long has this been an issue? How many miles are on the car?
Customer: About 120K, springs were leaking, just replaced them last week
JA: What is the model/year of your Lincoln?
Customer: 2004 Town Car
JA: Are you fixing your Town Car yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Since cars rear would drop every 6 hours or so, I've replaced springs. That was logical, checked the hight switch, resistance changes. So I think it is ok. And yes switch in trunk is on
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not really, maybe the running pressure of the compressor...?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.

If the compressor is running but the rear is not raising that means the module is not commanding the air solenoids on or those solenoids are faulty. Can you check to see if the solenoids will open and close when remotely powered?
