I'd have a look at the steering fluid level.

Yes, PS fluid. I think the air bag light is unrelated.

brand new, i put in a used one and 3 months later it's starting to go down. one way to really tell if it's bad is to turn your wheel all the way to the left and the right and the pump will start to get louder
