Greetings :) S430 owner

Hello Board,

I am the new owner of a white 2004 S430. This car came with some tire pressure sensor notification issues but we used a tire gauge and according to the recommended pressure, the tires checked out fine. The car is not our daily driver and is used mainly for weddings, funerals and bad weather. I work for a non-profit on a questionable side of town so I drive a 1995 grand marquis to work .

Here is my wild goose chase:
Recently headed out for a picnic and the Airmatic notification came on saying do not drive car. I returned it to the garage and later decided to sign up for help from the internet forums. I also looked in the manual and pressed the requisite buttons and it looks like nothing happens (car doesn't raise). The message now reads "No SAT."

I am happy to find this site and excited to research and troubleshoot this issue in more detail. In conclusion, once I get everything fixed, I look forward to the return of my car that drives like a dream, feels like a million bucks and is just an overall sexy beast.

Thank you all for reading.

S430, 2004 with chassis code 163?? The car is a 220, 163 is an ML.
