BMW Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Is your situation with the traction control? (Brake system) or the Hydraulic load leveling rear suspension? These are 2 completely seperate systems. Is this the unit you replaced in the trunk? - or are you working on the ASC unit under the hood?
What are the last 7 of your VIN number? The 1994 should have the rear load levelling system under the spare tire in the trunk.
The pics below are for the hydroboost power brake system- but are a completely seperate system from the rear level system according to the factory manual.
I guess I'm not understanding your question- your talking about two completely different systems here- The rear load leveling (rear height) and the traction control (ASC+T)
The above are ASC+T repair instructions. It sounds like your ASC system is working though- as the light is off until you press the switch to disable the system. If your concern is the back of the car not raising up- that is a completely seperate issue. Since I haven't been able to answer your question- I will opt out and let someone else give it a go.
