Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Since no one has been able to help you I thought I would respond. The codes you are listing are not coming up as valid fault codes. Im not sure what type of scan tool your using but you can not retrieve suspension codes with a code reader and to correctly retrieve them you need a BMW compatible scanner. If you can get it scanned and return with the correct codes I will try and help you get this resolved.

My scanner is BMW compatible. I can also calibrate the suspension with it.I will explain you step by step the problem and what i did.First the problem was the suspension going down and the self leveled suspension stop working. (getting the message Inside the car)I scan it so the result : no voltage in the back left suspension sensor (self leveled arm) so i change it be cause i test it and it was true, that pièces was not responding anymore.After i recalibrate the suspension, the compressor start (with the scanner only) and it seems good. 2 days after the suspension going down again with the same message (self leveling inactive).I scan it again and it gave me the codes i share earlier on this website.So im a bit confuse....
