Same problem,
a week ago 4x4 light appear. I stop the car, do the full left and full right wheel calibration and 4x4 light disappear.

Yesterday, again the light, calibration solved again but 5 minutes later 4x4 light on again.
Now It not reset the light with the calibration wheel anymore.
Dont know If is because that, but the last two times appear when do thigh corners in low speed.

Checked for codes? Might have a failing (failed) SAS...

A generic ODB code reader will not scan BMW-specific items, like the SAS. You need a laptop with at least BMW Scanner 1.4 or better yet, INPA or DIS. Another option is a handheld scanner like a Foxwell etc.

Download Torque Pro as it will work on your android and is perfect for the quick check/real time reading and resets although you should have a Foxwell NT-510 or NT-520 as part of your kit anyway.

Will Torque Pro show BMW SAS codes? I doubt it but maybe you have more experiance with that tool than I do.... I thought it only showed generic OBD codes mostly related to emissions)...

Will not read most of the BMW modules. The "second level" stuff won't scan with basic scanners that's why I have foxwell nt510

2004 X5 4X4 Warning Light

I had this warning when my left front air strut started to fail, and confirmed the bag was leaking. So perhaps check for that too IF you have air suspension.

Make sure none of the level sensors flipped or broke apart

X5 4X4 Warning Light

Sorry for there delay, it took some time to get the correct OBDII reader. I'm not near any dealers or mechanics that work on BMWs. The new reader gave me two codes:

D35B present (both of these are in red)
DSC: No message (DSC sensor 0CB)

5DEB not present (again both in red)
DSC: Insignificant. clear fault memory

Again, sorry for the delay but had to have the new sensor shipped to me.
THANKS FOR THE HELP.
