    You will be best to get the fault codes read from the light control module if there are no obvious problems, a main dealer or good BMW indy specialist will be able to do this.

    You need to get the codes read by dealer or specialist.

    I have a similar problem to this one. Are the sensors / adjusters easily seen or does the car have to go up on ramps.
    My cars been sitting not being used most of the summer in the rain is it possible the adjusters are just corroded.
