My dash light came on for my auto leveling headlights (2005 is300) so while at my buddys dealersip we pulled the rear one to attempt to clean the contacts.
We split the sensor open and all the contacts were so corroded that they basically fell aparts when you touched them. So im in the process of finding a replacement without haveing to pay dealership prices, and im not haveing any luck.
Any suggestions? :confused:

can you replace just the variable resistor ?

Anyone care to send me an old one to work on ?

I've looked forever on that and haven't found any hope on just the pot part of the sensor. I believe what happens is the seal(o ring) goes bad and the contacts oxidize and corrode.

If any one can rebuild one it would be you man!
