Looking and acting does not mean it IS working correctly. The ECU is detecting a suspension fault and you need to take it to a shop with the proper diagnostic gear to determine what the actual fault is. It is stored in the ECU and can be read with a GT1.

BTW, you are in the wrong forum for an X5....

I don't see that X5 message on the E39 list of cluster messages:
- List of all possible BMW E39 instrument cluster 20-digit alphanumeric display warning/information messages (1)

im only on this fourm for more support since X5 fourm has hardly any users.. and i did get the back droped, which the mechanic connected the computer and did so.. this was about a year ago.. but my main question was, no matter what error message comes, is there any way i can remove it, no matter if the problem exits or no? and give me more information on the GT1 please..
