I do that, though I will start with a check up of the self leveling sensors to see if it can lead to an easy fix. I will return to this topic.

 

When you refurbed the position sensors was it due to rusty/stiff joints?

 

If there is someone who has done the service function in Forscan for the auto leveling system, please write to this topic.

 

I refurbed the sensors as part of a complete refurb of the underside. I removed all the suspension, subframes, exhaust and heat shields etc, then either refurbed or replaced any parts before refitting.

 

I cleaned the position sensors, made new ball headed bolts and fitted new nuts before refitting them.

When I tried to disassemble the ball headed bolts one of them snapped, so I made new ones from scratch.

I could have just oiled the joints and left them alone, but I was dismantling everything to get items back to brand new looking.

I bought forscan to reset my xenons and the option is there once you have registered the product, it doesn't cost to register but it is only a temp licence, once the trial runs out if you need to do it again yoj will have to pay but all it cost me was the price of the cable, it does offer free code reading for any error codes that might be stored, do that before signing up for the trial so any problems can be fixed before you try reseting the lights, if a sensor shows a fault then forscan won't let you reset the lights until its fixed

Are you talking about a cable for the OBD port, or for the xenon plug under the bonnet?

 

If you mean the OBD port can you post up a link for the exact cable you bought.

Here comes an update in this topic.

 

I have done a visual inspection of the auto leveling sensors and couldnยดt find any visible damage. I have purchased an obd2 device and waiting for the item to arrive. I will try to run the headlight service function in forscan. An update will follow afterwards.

 

I read that you have to put each sensor in position zero before the service procedure can be done. Miggs2002, is it necessary to lift up the car to get the sensors in a zero position or is it enough if the car stands empty on a flat surface?
