BMW F02 Air Strut not filling?

Just got a 2011 F02 with 92k. Knew the left rear air strut was bad from the beginning. Replaced it and the strut won't fill itself? The sensors are reading that the left rear is ~60mm lower than the right side, but the car won't do anything to fix it and the level control malfunction warning is on the dash. I have 480DB0 on the EHC as raise control time still as a recurring code. I replaced the left side ride height sensors at the same time. I can hear the air pump pump activating when I use the computer to turn it on. Any ideas on what it could be? This is my first question here so if I need to clarify or reformat anything please let me know. Thanks in advance for any advice!

Welcome. You will probably do (much) better posting in the sub forum specific to your model.

In some models the air distribution block has gone bad. Or the hose from the block to the strut/airbag.

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label

OEM is not what BMW sells
