"Auto leveling headlights" issues, the headlights have gone crazy!

For some reason my headlights went crazy tonight, they were constantly popping up/down while driving or sitting still. I opened the hood and wiggled the wiring behind the headlight buckets and they stopped the up/down motion and seem to be operating properly.

Has anyone else had these issues with their headlights?

I should have followed up on the thread. The headlights have functioned perfectly since that one time. Must have been a little software glitch somewhere. I'll mention it at the next oil change but I'm not really concerned with it.

If it aint broke don't fix it!

They started acting up again tonight while driving back from Richmond on I-64. It was aggravating for me so I can imagine that the motorists in front of me were not happy with the up/down motion of the lights. Everyone was getting out of my way thats for sure, I guess they thought I was flashing my lights at them!

Its going to the dealer to get this resolved soon.

similar issue

i am having a similar issue with my auto leveling headlights. They are just pointed down at the ground. They will occasionally focus up for a minute or two and the go back to the ground. Did you ever find a way to fix this issue? it has been going on for a couple weeks now and i am pretty annoyed by it.
