Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. More often than not, the height sensors are the cause of this issue. Since they are exposed to the elements (dust/rain/snow/salt/road water), the sensors are very well known to fail due to intrusion of water and other road contaminants. If this vehicle was in my shop, I would be testing the accuracy of the height sensors; I would not be surprised to find that both sensors will need to be replaced.
