Question "afs off" light blinking

After I got my car lowered, the afs light started flashing on the dash, does anybody know what could be the problem and how I could fix it??? I'm guessing it might the height sensor that's causing this problem but i'm not sure...

yea the arm for the sensor is in the wrong location. simple fix, nothing to be worried about.

I had the same issue with the car when I lowered my car back in 2008. I took it to the dealership and they knew exactly what to do to fix it. Dont even bother trying to mess with it. Just take it to the service department and let them sort it out.

The ISF......The perfect car for an enthusiast. It can be driven to the track, run hard all day , and then transport me hundreds of miles to my home in luxury and comfort to pick up the wife for dinner and a movie....
