Hi, I'm Chad ,Welcome To JustAnswer, I'm reviewing your question and I will be be posting a replay ASAP

That red triangle is different than the "check engine" light which is your normal indicator that looks like an engine. The red triangle is warning light for things like low tire pressure, battery low (for key), brakes,suspension , on, etc.

Unless yours looks like the symbol in the diagram i sent you & it is Yellow in color , then it will be for the low tire pressure , but a red exclamation mark and VSC will be suspension issue

in your case the red exclamation caution light , is for the (VSC) Vehicle Stability Control),

1- Air suspension

2- Air suspension leveling sensor

3- air suspension module

You need to have the vehicle scanned and retrieve fault codes and than post them back here and i can be more specific , of what in the suspension system is failing ?

Please let me know

Thank You

how do i level my head light and reset codes so dash clears up
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 4 months ago.

i dont understand about leveling the headlight , please explain.

but as far as clearing the codes , you need a diagnostic scanner to clear ,but if one is not available to you , you can disconnect battery terminals , wait 10 minutes

and reconnect , if you have fixed the problem with suspension , the dash should clear

no when put on reader no codes come up
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 4 months ago.

it will be hard for me to know on this one, without being next to it and testing, go back and check all your connection , compare to the other headlight ,

was a new or used headlight assembly ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
brand new
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 4 months ago.

you have to check wiring to it and trace it back to the controller
