Self levelling suspension warning light on! And now what shall i do ?

Well i have an used 528i from 1998 E39 touring with almost 230000 kms and before i bought i went to BMW service to make a checkup, i mean some diagnostics..

They detected some errors like EHC error. That error was cleared on BMW service before i bought the car.

After driving it for almost 100 kms i had the suspension self levelling warning light on....for one day it was on then went off...now after almost 1500 kms done and i get once again these warning light and since then i drove my car for about 10 kms and its still there....i mean...yesterday i had these warning light and today its still there...and after some time it goes off and gets on again when i turn on my car...

What should it be ?

May i drive my car for about more 50 kms without problems if i have care of course ? I plan to go to BMW service in next 2 days.

Is these a common problem or what ?

thanks a lot!

Is the auto leveling by air springs? Maybe there is an intermittent leak.

That shows that it is using air springs. The system may need to be checked and serviced.

well i went again to the shop and they said i had a leak on the system! Its not pump problem its maybe on that rubber (i saw some kind of rubber surrounding the suspension) where there is a leak....what do you think of this!

The car has the rear axle down and sometimes on one side!
