What could be causing the "service air suspension" warning to come on. when i turn off my hummer and let it sit for an extended period of time, the air bags will deflate and re inflate when the vehicle is turned on.

Your vehicle is equip with air bag system. You probably experiencing an air lost due to air bags leaks or your leveling valve is exhausting air at the exhaust port. Here is what you do. Spray soap with water on spray bottle and spray around the air suspension area. when you see bubbles coming out that's the leaks. fix it. Good luck.
Your vehicle is equiped with a small compressor that pumps air into either a bag or shock absorber, each one has a leveling mechanism that sends the signal to pump more air to that particular side. This keeps your vehicle leveled at all times, like when you have passangers in the back sit, passenger sit, or luggage.
The message you are getting means that either the air is not getting to the front passenger suspension to level it up, which could be due to an air leak, or the bag or the part of the suspension that lifts that part of the vehicle is defective.
You can get a diagnostic at any reputable suspension shop at no charge to find out the exact cause.
A scan tool should be able to read the temp pids at operating temperature to see if they are "off" enough to cause problems . Check for fuel lines to close to heat sources as boiling of the fuel causing vapor lock may be happening after heat soaking .
The warning light is advising you of a fault in the rear air suspension system. Is the car sitting level ? The switch in the trunk is ONLY TURNED OFF when you incur a flat tire in the rear tires and must jack up the rear of the car. IF NOT TURNED OFF the air suspension will over-extend with air . Hope this helps.
It sounds to me like your compressor got killed. What probably happened is that the airbag got a hole or tiny crack in it so the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag killed the compressor. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car.
