Headlight Beam Adjustment Faulty

Hey all...This fault just popped up today...Headlight Beam Adjustment Faulty...Not sure what the deal is....I had the car lowered 6 months ago on the Eibachs.....I'm kinda hesitant on taking it to the Stealer aka Dealer.....If it's DIY I could probably knock it out myself...Any suggestion you would have would be great...the car as 51k miles and has the 6 year 100k warranty...I'm not sure if sensors are covered under it though...As always your feedback and assistance is well appreciated...

I just had this issue come up. I had the car for two weeks, it's a used 07. Took it to the dealer, they covered it under warranty. They first thought it was the sensor, but then ended up replacing the control module which fixed it. They said a wire was pinched, which shorted out the control module.

Same on our Cayenne, faulty control module. Should not have anything to do with lowering your car.

I received your PM, but not have enough posts to send back so I will respond here. 49k miles on the car, and it was covered under the CPO warranty. I believe the warranties cover electrical.
