SELF LEVEL SUSP INACT!!!

I have an 06 le mans, high mileage 80k, never had any major problem then today that message popped up about the self level suspension inactive, stopped the car checked the height(as it says in the manual) everything looked fine, started the car up again and the message has gone-reading some of the previous posts about this problem im now pretty worried.
Any help/advice would be much appreciated.

FWIW I had mine go off once every 6-9 months or so. Didn't have any impact on ride height so in my case I assume it is just some elec gremlin.

You would NOTbelieve how easy it may turn out to be to fix a (Self level suspension) issue sometime. However, this happened to me many times since I owned my (01 X5 4.4i) specially when you parked your vehicle with one side higher than other, as an example: when park on heavy snow, the ice will likely trigger the sensors under the car and that will cause the signal to send out on your dashboard as: (SELF LEVEL SUSP. INACT.)

Once snow has been cleared a little bit, the message most often disappear by itself by going in reverse a little bit and move forward or start the engine over.
Also it happened to me twice that way by having (a fuse that power this system) blown out. On (01 BMW X5 4.4i) like mine, it should be the 1st fuse as you open the right side panel in the trunk. And once replaced by the same fuse number, you may start the car or turn the key to power accessories and you will notice or may hear the rear vehicle lifting back-up.

You all done!!!
just say thx to Godddd!
