2006 car, very pampered, dry stored, no rain. Failed yearly MOT due to headlights not self levelling. They work fine, level is correct, I think they expected the lights to do the little dipping dance on switch on, mine don't do that.

The suspension sensors are in fine condition, no arms rotted off, both headlights face correctly, no drooping one side, no symptoms of a fault as far as I can see.

Firstly, is this an issue or just a feature? How do I know I have an issue? Apparently the box that controls headlamp level is (possibly...) the ABC controller, at £1000 plus labour. Non ABC cars have a Headlamp range adjuster box (HRA n71) I think!

Any thoughts or fixes?

R230 does not self test motor range when you first start it...
