X5 Head lights

My daughter has a 2005 X5 and there is an annoying problem with the head lights. At a random time frame they will dip down for only a second or two and then they will return to the proper level. I saw
this happen approximately five or six times in a fifteen minute trip.
She has taken it to the dealer and there was "No problem found."
Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this?
Thanks, G.S.

Loose connection on headlight load or just headlights adjust seems most likely.

Does she have Xenon lights?

Ali,
Yes she does.
BTW, the head lights dipping down and then back up to the proper level does this on level roads -- this is not due to a change in the elevation of the road.

Nevertheless, those Xenons aiming point *is* controlled by a circuit responding to input from a vehicle level sensor, and as both lights are dipping together, it seems likely that said sensor is going to Heaven...

Daytripper,
Thank you for that info. It sounds like the level sensor could be the culprit.

Unless you have put a lot of miles on the X5 it should still be under warranty (US).

It happens when you initially turn them on. If you have the problem after that then something is wrong.
