Self Levelling Headlights Warning Light.


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

2005, 3lt. The warning light, on start up comes on then off as it should, but then back on. Both lights dip then raise on start up and work fine, any Idea’s please. Haven’t used lights since winter, but concerned over upcoming mot. Thanks for the knowledge you all give.

All the best.

On my 2005 v6 it’s attached to the rear drivers side wheel. Same on my mates 2003 v6. I would guess same for all Alphard’s. It’s very prone to seizing in British weather (wet, dirt, salt kills the rubber and metal).

I’ve just had to replace the ball-joint levelling arm, see pic of original which has clearly had too much British road salt and not enough cleaning. It has completely seized and was the source of a loud squeak from the R rear; I’m just relieved it wasn’t something more expensive.

I replaced with this rather nice item I bought on eBay for £14 delivered. I did have to cut a longer connecting bar (M6 threaded bar, cut to 50mm; it came with a 40mm bar which would only just have done it). I also added the washers and the nuts to secure the connecting bar length. Total time to replace was 10 mins; quick clean up down there and some liberal application of ACF50 and all looks good.

Hi there 

 

Could you please post the part number or link please? My light came on and with further investigation I found it has snapped! All I can find are for a toyota Avensis.

 

Kind regards
