Lincoln Aviator: Load Carrying / Air Suspension

WARNING: If your vehicle has self-leveling air suspension, you must switch the system off before carrying out any maintenance or repair. Failure to follow this warning could result in serious personal injury or death.

The air suspension system automatically adjusts to maintain a constant frame height, allows for ease of vehicle loading, provides improved vehicle ride, and increased driver comfort.

You can adjust different ride settings through the selectable drive modes.

Note: The air suspension system may not operate properly if you exceed the load limit.

Note: When your vehicle is off, the air compressor may run for a short time. This is normal.

Switching the systems on or off

You can access the air suspension, liftgate and easy entry features through the information display menu settings.

Using the Service Mode

When the service mode is active, the air suspension does not make any adjustments while your vehicle is stationary.

Note: Always switch the air suspension service mode to on before servicing your vehicle.

Using Cargo Loading

The air suspension cargo loading feature lowers your vehicle for easier access when the system detects the liftgate is opening.

When the liftgate is closed your vehicle returns to its normal height after a short time.

Note: To preserve your vehicle battery, your vehicle may only lower for cargo mode one to two times per ignition cycle.

Using Easy Entry

The air suspension can lower your vehicle to an easier access entry height when the system detects the intelligent access key, you press the unlock button, use the remote start, or use Phone as a Key.

The leveling process stops when you open a door or the target level is achieved.

Note: To stop the leveling process, press the lock button on the intelligent access key.

Note: To preserve your vehicle battery, your vehicle may only lower for easy entry one to two times per ignition cycle.

    Emergency Locking

    Each door has a backup power system which allows the door to function if your vehicle has no power. The system has a limited number of operations before the power is depleted and turns off. When the system turns off, the door remains open and unlatched and does not close.

    If your vehicle has no power and the backup power system is turned off, you can close and secure your vehicle by manually resetting each door latch using a key in the position shown.
