Adaptive Headlight Problem

Well a little while ago my adaptive headlight sensor light came on. The other day I looked inside the headlight and all the wires seem to be fine, but I am far from a professional. Any help would be greatly appriciated! Thanks

There are a lot of threads on this one man. Some have had the white rod inside the headlight housing break due to impact w potholes. Some had modules fail. Some had issues w software. There's a lot of plausible reasons so you'd have to do a little more investigating brother and report back.

The module under the light is usually the culprit.

That's what I'm guessing since the bulbs seem fine and the cords look fine. I did some research on the forum and it looks like the module cost around $1000 which is dumb in itself. So I've decided I really don't need my headlights to move. I just wish I could get the error light to go away

You can buy the module used on ebay for about 60 bucks.
