OBD codes B1323, B1428, C1770, C1790, C1818, C1830 and C1850

My 98 Windstar Limited has air suspension in the back. Lately, it would be sitting low in the back before starting it up in the morning. The compressor would pump it up as soon as you fired up the van. And the rest of the day would be fine. The other day, the warning light for the air suspension came on, and the compressor has not worked since. Fuses and power connections all seem okay. OBD codes B1323, B1428, C1770, C1790, C1818, C1830 and C1850 were in the system. Is anyone here familiar with these codes and therefore what the problem may be?

Meanwhile, the winnie is now a lowrider! (Hmm ...!)

Thanks to all who reply!

B1323 Door ajar lamp circuit failure
B1428 Lamp Seat Belt Circuit Failure
C1770 Air suspension vent solenoid circuit failure
C1790 Air suspension left rear airspring output circuit failure
C1818 Air Suspension Compressor Timeout
C1830 Air suspension compressor relay circuit failure
C1850 Air Suspension Warning Lamp Circuit Failure

You'll need to get the air suspension going and many of these will go away. Have you considered changing it to a spring strut system?

No need to duplicate post all over the forum.

Update:

Well, I couldn't find ANYONE offering or manufacturing new air ride compressors for 98 Windstars. The next best choice was to get mine rebuilt. Then, sooner or later, the bags for the air suspension would begin to leak, if they haven't already. Bottom line, it was better for me to convert to conventional coil springs and shocks. I opted for variable rate coil springs for the added resistance with the heavier loads. Total Cost Can. $ 800 including labour.
