Wtf??? Selflevl suspension inactive!?!?!?!?!?!!!

This is driving me FREAKIN INSANE!!!

Every now and then i get a light that comes up saying Self_Level Suspension Inactive. I turn off the car, turn it back on, it goes away, when the light coems back, i put the car in park, look and MEASURE both back tires, since in 4.4i the back tires are the only ones with air suspension, there both perfectly the same. the drive lately, however has been a LITTLE bumper then normal. but maybe its just me being paranoid? :/ the light comes on and off rarely and IDK what 2 do anymore!

Any one ever had this issue? if so how did you fix it? :/

it cant be that my air suspension is messed up because if that was the case then the back tires would be lower or higher then normal, and it isnt. :/

I do no that I have a bad / bended front right lower control arm but can that be the cause of the suspension light coming on? :/ I cant see how because its in the front but idk?

Please help!

Good luck dude.

My X5's problem with the suspension is that the right side of the car sits lower after a while compared to the right, but once I turn on the car it levels up to the right level.
