2001 Ford Expedition: -Wheel drive..air suspension..rear air bags…

Customer Question
I have a 2001 Ford...
I have a 2001 Ford Expedition All-Wheel drive with air suspension. The rear air bags are flat and compressor will not turn on. I have tested the compressor and it works. Could it be the height sensor, if so where is it located? I have no voltage at the fuse, at the compressor, or at sensors attached to air bags.

HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

 

So you have no voltage at any of the suspension fuses?

 

Fuse 109 (50A) In the engine compartment fuse box?

Fuse 12 and 6 in the interior fuse box with the key on?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
