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.

OBDII scanners for the home DIY guy only scan powertrain codes ... and not body codes .... which is where the airbag code(s) would go. Scanners that do both are expensive. I would call a local auto parts place that advertises that they will scan for free ... but ask them if their scanner can read body codes related to the air bag. If they say yes ... I would take it to them and to narrow down your troubleshooting ... since the airbag light can go on for a bunch of reasons and you do not want to just throw parts at it.
Good luck with your troubleshooting!
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.
