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.

Air bag warning light comes on and stays on. when I start the car the airbag light flashes once and then stays lit.

Hello, This can be something that really needs attention. The warning can tell you that there is a bad Impact sensor on the front bumper or that the Chemicals or contacts in one of your Airbags is not correct.

You really don't want the thing triggering your bags by accident or having a bag that will not inflate. There should be a Diagnostic plug a scanner can read. It may be something any Bump shop can attend to if you want to avoid a Dealer.

My back wheel when it hit a pot hole or any other bump in the street it bounce or not enough bounce to it ...the struts are ok an suspension is ok I was told so whats goin on..can u help me

I not sure if I fully understand your question. Are you asking should your car be bouncing more when you hit a bump or pot hole?

Well this is how struts and shocks are suppose to work: Struts and shocks are suppose to assist in providing a smooth ride, when you hit a bump or pot hole the struts and shocks absorb the force so you won't feel the full impact when driving. A good set of struts and shocks will eliminate excessive bouncing when driving or when you come across bumps and other mishaps in the road. So inconclusion if your car is not doing a whole lot of bouncing when you are driving that is a good thing, because that means your struts and shocks are doing their job and that means there is nothing wrong with them.

Side air bag deployed while on the highway. No damage to outside of car. Was driving down highway and the drivers side air deployed. I did not hit anything from what i saw on the outside of car. Has this...

in the U.S. the airbags are programmed to deploy @ 9mph(roughly the same as hitting a kerb hard.)so if the airbag went off you would not know if you hit a pothole, unless you went back to look....dont know any makers airbags that have recalls applied to them.
think of the litigation if there were...........

Rear air bag on my 1998 range rover is not attached

Since your vehicle is a 1998 your struts(possibly springs) are going bad just because of age and ware & tear over time. I'd reccomend taking this to a mechanic to have them check out your suspension, generally new struts and springs all around will cost 300-400 for parts, and a few hours labor. It can be easily done by yourself as long as you have a spring compressor. If you don't have a haynes manual already I highly suggest purchasing one for your car, most auto parts shops have them, and you can find them on ebay pretty cheap.
You can most likely replace the airbag yourself if you get a new rear airbag and install it yourself, but remember to disconnect all of the battery terminals so that the car does not for any reason deploy the airbag while your working on it(very unlikely) but its a good saftey percaution. Personally I would get the rear airbag professionall installed because I'd want to be 100% sure it would deploy in case of an accident.

Air bag warning light

Have Chrysler Jeep check this out for you - this can be a serious problem if not checked out. If maybe that your airbag could have been malfuctioned somehow or disployed and not put back properly. Best to have the dealer check it out. This is what I read in my 1999 Jeep manual on the airbag issues. Good luck.

1998 navigator bounces if the front and knocks when you hit bumps

SOunds like a broken shock, or bad strut. Air bags or not, struts and shocks are what control bounce.

When driving down the road it bounces

Sounds like worn or blown struts - they control the oscillation of the car on rougher roads.
