I have a 2001 continental, the air bag light is sending a code of 36. Can you tell me what that means?

    does anyone know how to adjust or service these ride height sensors? we have replaced compressor and front air bags and the only way the system will work right is if we wiggle the ride height sensors before we leave it is 1994 lincoln continental :mad:

    first, switch is turned off to PREVENT damage to air strut(s). if no damage, then turn the switch (air ride) off, disconnect neg - wire on the battery, wait awhile (have a coffee, etc.), reconnect battery, turn ignition on (w/engine running), turn air ride switch on...
    air system should correct itself (best if on a hill, front facing uphill)...
    NOTE: you may have to start engine 2-3 times per cycle to get proper height...
    i own a "88 continental signature series.

    Can the air ride suspension for a 1994 Continental be replaced with a Air Suspension Conversion Kit for a Ford Taurus?

    End all you'r airbag troubles call STRUT MASTERS and get air bag conversion. It costs less than one new air bag and labor. You get 4 new springs 4 struts and instructions .If you are into you'r own repairs it is not hard to install. The people at strut masters are very helpful. They can supply air bag repacement parts also at good prices.

    That is soooo true! I tried strutmasters as well and I am glad I dont have to deal with all that airbag garbage anymore. A buddy of mine installed mine since he knows more about cars than I do, but he said it was pretty simple just like the site said. So I strongly, strongly recommend it! :)

    Same thing happened to me. I called the dealer. They say get in car. Make sure all doors and trunk hood are closed. Turn air susp. switch on. Turn ignition to on but dont start. at same time push gas pedle to floor and hold it. system will balance out and should return to normal.

    I have a 1994 Lincoln Continental. It loses all levelling in the rear of the car. When I start up in the morning it levels off and stays up for about 5 hours before it drops again. Pump is good and no leaks can be found. Need help please

    The Lincoln Continental Air Bag System is a system of air bags first developed by the Lincoln automobile company in the 1940s and later used on other cars. It is among the earliest automotive safety technology, predating even seat belts. In cars fitted with this system, pressurized air bags inflate from a canister at the front of each side window to cushion passengers during head-on collisions. The bag closes over an area of their bodies, taking up most of the space between their heads and windshields or dashboard just before impact.
