Lights to lows

Hi I think my headlights is to low, when I start the lights the automatic adjustment looks fine but after few seconds the final custom is to low and I don’t know how to adjust this look I read something about xenón sensor in front and rear wheel I disconnected but same results


This is normal??

Uhh...

First, you posted on the wrong forum. Other than that, you can code the car to push up the lights a bit. And also, lights on the driver side is generally lower so you aren't blinding the opposite traffic lane.

aka, it is normal. You can google it.


P.S. oops, right forum :P

It ain't the right way to go. Just the opposite actually. Connect them and make them work again!

You will be blinding people (tempting them to adjust your headlights ) instead of lighting the road when your car is loaded.

Have a look at the rear axle, the drivers side. There you'll find the level sensor for the headlights. The mount has probably snapped off and the sensor is loose and not connected to the arms connected to the body and the rear suspension arm. The sensor will make the headlights go to lowest position as default.

It's a very flimsy design and it'll involve some drilling or welding to get it back in position.

Good luck.
