One of your xenon auto leveling sensors is broken. Most likely the front.
When this happens, the lights default in a downward position.

What you need to do is manually adjust the levels by turning the large black knob on the top of the headlight.

would i need to find the leveling connection rod ?
If you're lucky, it could be that the rod itself slipped out from the sensor. Just jack up the car on the passenger front side and take a look. However, if the plastic arm snapped off the sensor you still have to replace the whole unit.


No professional is required. In fact, there are not even any module specific codes for a faulty sensor (in PA Soft at least).
