Air Bag Leak

I recently bought a car with airbags up front and the compressor is wired up to a toggle switch under the dash. With the bags up, the pressure guage reads 90 psi. I usually drive the car once a week and every time I get in to drive it, I flip the switch and the compressor runs for about 10 minutes even with the guage reading 90 psi. I don't know the size of the tank. Is it normal for the compressor to run so often?

maybe.....the first thing you should do is get some soapy water in a pump bottle and check all the fittings for leaks...

Have you checked the relay could be bad / stuck JMO. Or the bag /line could have hole rubbed in it/fitting could also be leaking . Or it could be the compressor.
