Default Deleted Air suspension. Now need coding to remove error. [SOLVED]

[SOLVED!!!!]


So.... after several days of searching for the solution, I decided to start this thread. "Search" button on various BMW (English and Russian) forums, Google, Yandex - was no help. There are a bunch of threads regarding this subject in E70 forums. But no real solution in the E61 community.

Problem:
I deleted air suspension on our 2009 BMW 535xit (VIN: CX02693) - installed ISC Coilovers. Now need to find a solution how to get rid of "Level control system malfunction!"





If somebody has a solution to this, please share.

Thank you in advance.

This is the closest to your car I've found. I would call customer service to see if they have an application for you.

Interested in this as well since I don't plan on keeping the air suspension.

One of my friends has a bunch of BMW programs (INPA etc) in his laptop, he tried to see if it's possible to delete Air Suspension as the vehicle option.

As I understood from his explanations, E61s (looks like all of them for North America market) had this feature, not as an option, but as chassis requirement.









I contacted local BMW/MINI coder, who does coding as a business, his answer was "I cannot help you"

As of November 2017 still no solution

I believe the UK E61s all had the air suspension from factory, as well...

Might be something that just needs to be tolerated.

Would you be interested in selling the air supply control module since your deleting the air suspension?

I think mine is having issues. Would not guarantee or warrant this module.
