Mark VIII air ride coming back from the dead
My 93 Mark VIII has been converted to coils a while back by the previous owner. I recently replaced a UCA with a tbird UCA, so I removed the ride height sensor and left the air ride switch off.
I got tired of the air ride message, so I took off the lower kick panel, weatherstripping, glove box, etc. only to find that the green wire (the right one as verified on LOD) had already been cut.
I turned on the air ride switch and all was well, no air ride message, etc.
Except that now the battery starts draining every time the air ride switch is left on. If I turn the switch off the battery won't drain, but if I leave it on overnight it will drain.
So I can only assume that the compressor is somehow running and draining the battery.
Does anyone know which underhood fuse controls the compressor? The one inside of the car controls the compressor and a few other things (MLPS etc) so I can't pull that one.
