2004 X5 Self Level Control Inactive Warning. Level sensor or control module?

I recently started receiving the 'Selflevel suspension inactive' error / warning message on my X5. It has air suspension on the back only.

Since then both level sensors on the left & right rear wheel has been replaced. I have also replaced the Height Control Module next to the battery.

Any idea what else might be triggering this warning?

What does it mean when it says 'measuring range not valid' for the left sensor?
Why is the left sensor not getting any power?

Does the Height Control Module need reprogramming?


RESULT: 2 errors in error memory !
-------------------------------------------------------------

1 rear left sensor

Error frequency : 31

power supply for sensors 0.00 mV

measuring range not valid
-------------------------------------------------------------

2 rear right sensor

Error frequency : 31

power supply for sensors 72.00 mV


Thanks in advance.

hello, avoid headaches overall! just do a rear airbag suspension retrofit. selfleveling suspensions are only good for about the first 25000 miles. the rubber on the airbags becomes dry and brittle and tend to leak or break open. yoour self eveling sensors are making the air compressor work overtime just to try to level the vehicle. afer three attempts, the air compressor will quit and the computer will display a self leveling suspension inactive in your dash.
Eibech suspensions offer a kit that comes with a code delete sensor that you plug into the system fooling the computer and believe me, the ride is exceptional and same as the original.

If i replace the self leveling suspension relay or module do i need to let the agents reset the computer. We launched a boat with the car and some water came into the battery box the relay was submerged half way under water
