    There is no safe way to shut off of the air bag system, why do you want to do this? Air bags save lives everyday, PERIOD.

Probably cant shut it off, and is probably illegal to do in most states. Airbags are not a good idea to play with. You can be killed. Selling a car that you dismantled the airbag system on is illegal as well. Just thought ya should know this for your safety.

I have a 2006 lincoln navgator why in the front does it keep going down

The Navigator has an air ride (air bag) suspension system. It uses a compressor and air bags in the suspension to provide a smooth and level ride. These systems are fairly reliable, but can malfunction due to misuse or parts failure. A common problem with these is that you must turn off the air ride system before raising the vehicle on jacks or a lift. This is because the weight of the vehicle provides a feedback pressure to the compressor to allow it to determine proper level and shutoff point. If the vehicle's weight is removed from the suspension with the air ride on, the compressor can over-inflate the air bags and cause them to blow out and fail. Other things that can happen are leaking air hoses, o-rings, seals and such.

    Airbag light flashes 3 times

    You will need to take your vehicle into to a certified Air Bag Safety Center to do the neccessary tests required on your air bag system, what they dont tell you is the air bag systems on all cars over i believe five years should all be tested by a certified technician in the air bag field, remembber the air bags can be your friend in times of an accident or the contrary, they can be your worst nightmare if they deploy while you are driving without notice, due to a mechanical over looked malfuction.

    Disabling air bag system so i can replace my radiator. having trouble finding how to do this so i dont accidentally set it off

    Replacing the radiator will not set off the air bag.
    The fuse for the air bag system is marked SIR.
    Supplemental Inflatable Restraint.
    There is reason to worry about setting off the air bag.I have worked for GM dealerships for 20 years and have never seen an airbag deploy during vehicle service.
    Good luck

    The air bags seam to have a leak I put any thing in the back and the air bag pump runs till it over heats

    You are referring to the suspension bags? There is a shutoff which is not intended for your problem. It is either in the rear interior panels close to the hatch opening or in the spare tire well. Look at your owners manual. You are not suppose to drive the vehicle like that. There are companies which repair the bags and you may not need both fixed. You may be able to eliminate the bags with coil springs. Or you may be able to put in used parts to lower the cost.
