Check Susp light on 97 Expedition EB

Recently bought an 97 Expedition EB that had the air ride replaced with coil springs, does anyone know how I can get rid of the check susp light?

I am 100% sure, but you can try to remove the sensor fuse, if its still there and maybe that would make the light go away. I am pretty sure the light is either controlled by its own control unit or through the pcm. Again I am not sure but these are just some random guess'.

WALJON is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I replaced my front air shocks with a kit from Strut master in the instructions was how to delete the light I had to take my dash apart to get to the wiring and cut a wire so maybe if you do a google search on strut master how to install one of these kits you may stumble on this info.

wish I could tell you what wire and where but it has been awhile

Some have just located the correct wire at the suspension switch and cut and taped it. I don't know which wire to cut though.

suspension lt

did you flip the air pump switch off and then back on under the passenger side dash? That light comes on when there's a malfunction in your air suspension system. Mine came on when a leak kept the air compressor kicking on and overheated it.
