How do I reset SELFLEVEL SUSP INACT after air bag and ride height sensor replacement?

Single axle adjustable suspension. I had a ride height sensor go out, and an air bag issue. Replaced both. I have INPA, and I've figured out how to manually adjust ride height to get it set at the correct factory levels. Unfortunately, the only way I can keep it there after setting it is to leave the system in transport mode, because if I turn transport mode off, as soon as I turn the vehicle off, the suspension fully inflates. I've never gotten the SELFLEVEL SUSP INACT message to go away.


I assume getting this fixed correctly involves resetting the offsets so the system can go back to the correct heights based on load? Can anyone walk me through the process in INPA so I can finally get rid of that damn message?

I found the place in foxwell to do it never used the laptop but there should be an initialization procedure you just need to find it. And of course clear any error codes inn the module

Which Foxwell scanner are you using? I've got a really cheap scanner that's generic and pretty much only reads engine codes, I have Carly, which reads some codes but not others and really isn't very useful for my E53 (but is pretty nice for my E60), and I have INPA, which is an actual PITA to use, since everything's in German and it's not particularly user friendly or intuitive.


I'm open to buying a decent scanner that will give me more visibility and control over the systems other than the engine.....

The foxwell 510 is the perfect scanner for e53 and great for e70. We bought an F10 in early 23 and neither could read the ECU module though every other so I ended up getting the 710.

The 710 is based on an android tablet and there is no comparison.

Support is very lacking but not needed and the best part of the 710 is that it has WiFi built in so it can connect to the internet for direct self updates!

I still use the 510 becusse I have modules for gm, Chrysler, Toyota in that scanner and only BMW and land(range) rover in the new one.
