My 2016 Forester automatic levelizers sensor does not turn…

Customer Question
My 2016 Forester automatic...

My 2016 Forester automatic levelizers sensor does not turn off automatically when they are released (left rear best I can tell). I can shut it off but when I start to drive the noise comes back on and stays on while I am driving although they levelizers all see to be up.

Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

Automatic levelizers. Just shows that left rear light still on. Are there sensors other places than beside door?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Forester yourself? What have you tried so far?

I had it fixed a year ago at Reines RV when my son-in-laws were instructed to turn off sensor. My son-in-law drove it home from the Mounties with the sensor going off the entire time. My sister had to have open heart surgery and I was away a month. Hoped to use RV this weekend and the levelizers go down and retract but just stay on while driving. i have let them down and retracted serveral times. As in past this has corrected problem but not this time.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It does jerk prior to releasing the levelizers to come up... more so than it used to do.

That can from having the fluid level too low. I would do a visual check on the jacks and see if you see any evidence of any fluid leaking around the lines or down the shaft on the jack. See if that jack is all the way up or not? Let me know what you find and we can go from there. Whose system is this? The name should be on the touchpad.
