    2002 e39 tourer
  1. xlcelt

    SLS totally failed this morning...

    Had a similar thing on mine a couple of years ago, one minute down next as high as it could go, turned out to be the connection to the sensor on the r/h side, it was corroded and giving spurious signals.Ended up getting a repair loom from BMW
  2. have you checked the wires at the plug that connects to the sensor? that's what was wrong with mine, the wires were corroded and a couple had broken off in the plug. had to get a repair loom from bmw, about £50 if i remeber correctly

    E39 Touring Yet Another SLS Issue! (Land Rover Height)

    Had the same with my tourer,ended up being the plug that fits onto the sensor, the wires were corroded about 2mm out of the plug so could'nt get a soldering iron on it.BMW do a repair cable no problems since (touch wood)

    air springs

    before you spend money on new bags have a read of my post about suspension woes i thought my problems were air bags but it turned out to be corroded wires going into the sensor plug one minute the back end was up then only one side then both down blah blah, worth having a look

    e39 tourer air suspension woes

    have ordered reader from said site, annoying thing is today did a trip of 100 miles with light on but back end was perfect.
  13. Hi everyone, my e39 252d 2002 estate dash light for the sls has come on. The suspension seems to work on occasion in that, the compressor works, the arms on the sensors are both attached, and the back end goes up and down when it should, the problem is it sometimes inflates the bags to the max and sometimes only one side will be high with the other looking normal.The dash light sometimes comes on when all looks good and today both sides were up to the max and no light on the dash, any help much appreciated
