Xenon's won't settle/level

Post by spud26 » Tue Jan 10, 2017 11:15 am

From time to time my Xenon's can't seem to find a level. They don't do it all the time but it's becoming more frequent. When the car is fired up the lights scroll through their full adjustment top to bottom but don't find a level and constantly go up and down. Just a level sensor on the way out? I've no codes in the system at the moment.

I'd say so. Seen the same behaviour with the manual levelling control as well. Might be worth spraying some electronics contact cleaner where the arm goes into the sensor box, if you can get to it.

Do they go up and down full range constantly or just wobble up and down a little?
