      VCDS Version: Beta 812.4

      Address 55: Xenon Range
      Control Module Part Number: 1T0 907 357
      Component and/or Version: Dynamische LWR 0003
      Software Coding: 0000003
      Work Shop Code: WSC 01269
      2 Faults Found:

      01539 - Headlights Not Adjusted
      005 - No or Incorrect Basic Setting / Adaptation
      00497 - Sensor for Vehicle Leveling; Rear
      010 - Open or Short to Plus


      If I clear them, they come back. A few days ago my headlights were pointed at the ground. The next day they were pointed very high. They are still high, but atleast I can still see

      I just replaced the sensor and nothing changed!

      Please advise???

      Assuming the sensor is fine, have you checked its wiring, connectors and installation yet?

      Yea, I checked the connector and it looks fine. No damage and its plugged in all the way. I replaced the sensor with a brand new one and the codes wont go away :/

      Have you had any Suspension maintennance, or changes?

      If so, the leveling arm may hve been re-installed incorrectly.

      You don't check wiring and connectors just by looking at them. Grab a multimeter and perform proper testing. You also didn't answer the question if there had been suspension work done.

      Yes, different coils swapped on. We disconnected the sensors from the control arms.

      And by check wires, I thought you meant just visual check Ill grab my multimeter and bentley manual.

      Both the front and rear sensors are pointed in the correct direction. Away from the car towards the driver door. Codes still remain and they cant be cleared. If I remember correctly, the measuring blocks say the front sensor is ~18% while the rear is a 0.0% since it doesnt see it.

      I haven't tested the wiring with a multimeter yet. I plan on doing that tomorrow afternoon.

      Any solution for this issue? Was it wire harness issue?
