My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I 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.
This may be a fault with a suspension level or position sensor failure causing this issue here.If you have not had the fault codes checked in all computers to see what codes are setting this should be done and any codes set will need diagnosed to help locate and repair the cause here.This needs done using a scan tool that will plug in and communicate with all computers in your vehicle.
Thanks Pete
