Yes, I have had a suspension leveling warning for the past year and my car does not have suspension leveling! I have the Electrical Troubleshooting Manual and have traced the circuit all the way to the check control module and found no problems, grounded the signal, and even cut the wire to leave the circuit open, all without success. The only down side is that if you have the suspension leveling message and you travel at more than 110 mph another message appears on the display warning that the maximum speed has been exceeded. I have just learned to live with this little treasure.

This warning has developed to be more and more of a problem. It really does not have any regularity to it. the only thing I know is that the car is not sagging to the extent that the manual descrbes for this warning to come on. More recently my rear hydraulic leveling shocks have begun to show signs of seepage and loss of pressure overnight, but while driving they have never shown any signs of major sagging. I am just wondering if anyone else has had this symptom before and how they solved it. Also the warning always disappears once the car comes to a complete stop and sometimes randomly while the car is in motion. However once the engine is stopped it reappears so it is probably stored in memory somewhere. The problem could be the camber sensor or in the failing shocks. If the shocks are seen as the problem any suggestions on where to find some replacements would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. J. Penny 1990 750il
