Problem: This BMW X5 was brought to the shop because the suspension warning lamp was on. The suspension seemed to be level and the customer had no real complaint about how the vehicle is driving.

Case Details: The technician connected a scan tool and found diagnostic trouble code (DTC) 480DB2 - Control time, lifting, rear left.

First, the tech used a scan tool to monitor the height sensor readings while lifting the vehicle, making sure the left rear follows the right rear. The left did not follow the right.

Next, he inspected the left rear height sensor, associated wiring and the connectors. The left rear height sensor was cracked and full of corrosion.

Confirmed Repair: The technician replaced the left rear height sensor and performed the ride height adjustment procedure with a scan tool. A good road test revealed no further issues. Fixed!
