The light coming on means the system has stored trouble codes. You need to have those codes retrieved and they will get you pointed in the right direction. This will require the use of a professional scan tool to retrieve those code, not just a generic code reader.

" When" does the light(VERY IMPORTANT) come on.10-15 seconds after startup.90 seconds after startup?

From what you've described, it sounds like you have leaking front air struts to begin with. And the compressor may now be full of water.
