I have a 2003 BMW X5 4.4i. For the past few months I have had the "self level susp inactive" notice on my dash.The suspension still seems fine. Vehicle rides nice and it seems level. Any thoughts?

If you're satisfied with the way the car handles and rides, don't worry about it. If you're concerned about the light, take it to a dealer and they will troubleshoot and correct whatever problem they find. But it will probably be an expensive way to turn the light off.

    On my dash board a message comes out ones on a while, self level susp.inact what does that means, do I need to fix it? Car drives fine.

    Things to check would be the control linkage from the sensors to the suspension. Two in front, two in back with independent suspension. Check the electrical plugs for corrosion. It works because the messages goes off. Sounds like something a little sloppy.

    I have a 2005 Range Rover. My suspension inactive is on and my car is stuck in standard mode. it says standard mode but the front is dropped. My suspension control on the dash light is not on. The fact...

    This is a bit old but for the future, turn the steering wheel from full lock in one direction to full lock in the other. Yes, it's weird but that's solution.

    Air suspension inactive

    you can try turning the ignition on and off , only to position two ond off with out starting , between 20 - 30 times this sometimes confuses modules and causes them to clear faults , if not i would recomend getting it plugged in , if vehicle is not in warranty go to landrover specialist , much cheaper!!!!!

    Repair to my car


    Your concern is your BMW displays the message "SELFLEVEL SUSP. INACT" which indicates that the car's computer detects a problem with your active suspension system. Self-leveling is standard to most late model BMWs. It works on a pump, an air system and a computer that tells which suspension gets how much height, ride stiffness and other suspension settings.

    Your concern is a known issue though not that fairly common. Technically, the best would be to contact your dealer or if in The USA, BMW of North America, LLC. call (800) 831-1117 or email

    You may want to mention a possible problem with the firmware/software of the EHC (Electronic Height Control) Control Module. They may want to recode (flash). It is also possible to have air leaks in the system specially on the suspension bladder.

    Other things you can check are tire pressure (30PSI), see if your ride is a bit stiff/hard now compared to before the earning displayed showed up, handling difficulty, loopsided/tilted level among others.

    Incidentally, if there is nothing out of the ordinary in how the car ride, handle or drive, it may just be a systems glitch. Try jockeying the key to ON/OFF a couple of times.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.

    Thank you for using FixYa.
