In This car the leak is ALWAYS the airbag it self, and it is usually the front two that leak. Replacing them requires the front suspension be disassembled.

If they fill up when the car is running you're ok. If they stay low all the time, have them checked.

Possibly a loose heat shield near the exhaust rattling.

SOURCE: Air bag light won't go off

It likely is a bad passenger air bag. Did you try switching it back to off on the switch,and unhooking the battery for 5 minutes.

Airbag leak


this is hard to say without knowing what type of car, i will assume its a lincoln, the most common problem is with the air bags, if this has been a problem for a while in which the car would lift up after starting due to a leaking bag then i would say that you will need a new compressor also. what happens is the compressor runs until it gets hot and goes bad, sometimes the fuse will blow before the compressor goes bad, you would need to check fuse in the engine compartment.

Airbags


Sounds like it needs more air in bags. Add air and squirt really soapy water over bags and attached lines to find leak. May have to replace bag/bags or feed line from pump. I would think it would be a feed line if car stays up with switch off.
