    There is a rear Censer, this one gave me a couple of problems. Codes need reading.

    Right-------------- level warning came on again, but was intermittent. So I've had the wheels off again and loosened the upper arm bolts. Then instead of jacking the lower control arm up to what I thought was the running height, I supported the cars weight on axle stands under the lower arms, let it...

    Thanks for your help. Seems to have been a glitch every thing working now. No warning at all.

    Just one Question. Which lighting setting do you all use. Corner and bend lighting or the intelligent forward lighting?? Mine was set on the former going to try the latter.. See if I like it.

    Now I've always...
