Iv just fitted lowering springs to my st3 , now my self leveling headlights don't go up , are the sensors on the front , behind the o/s wheel ? And on the back , are these for the lights ?

Have something to contribute?

if they are ford items or from ford then they will have been tested so i doubt they would affect the lights did ford do the fitting? i would nip in and say you bought them ford recomend them and since they were fitted you had the lights issue

Perhaps they have 'never come across the problem' because they have;

a. Never done the same job ?
or
b. Re-Fitted parts that have been removed that are linked to the light levelling control so not experienced lighting problems ?

Just a thought..............

Also seen as though you ask the location of the sensors but refer to actual wheels (o/s) do you have any photo's of what you believe may be the sensors ?
