Ford & Lincoln Air Suspension Compressor Relay
Motorcraft Logo

When the bigger air suspension compressors start going bad, they draw way too many amps....which is extremely hard on these solid state relays. There's no rebuilding and no way around it, if the relay is bad, it needs replacing. Recommended replacement ALONG WITH replacing an air suspension compressor. In other words, while replacing the relay may get things working again if the compressor isn't also replaced, the new relay will die soon. Make sure you check the air suspension compressor relay connector also, as it can melt and result in a bad connection.

Compressor Solid State Relay

change - Navigator & Expeditions built after FEB. 3, 2003
Navigator vehicles built prior to February 3, 2003 use a solid-state relay for the air suspension compressor motor. The control line from the module is grounded to energize the relay. The relay is located on the radiator support on the right side just behind the headlamp assembly.
Both Navigator and Expedition vehicles equipped with air suspension built since February 3, 2003 utilize a mechanical relay for the compressor motor. The control line from the module is grounded to energize the relay. The relay is located on the compressor bracket just above the compressor attachment to the radiator support on the right side.
In addition, there are important wiring differences between the two relays. Early production vehicle relays have one power feed, where late production relays have two (both are hot at all times). The solid-state relay also employs an external full-time ground, where the mechanical relay does not.
