Default 2013 headlights = Loss of autoleveling?

Good Morning Men, I did my research, wired for the leds to function as I desired, but Im at a loss. I know I was going to lose the AFS functionality. But, we also lose auto-leveling function? Based upon research I did I did not read about needing to re-pin for the auto-leveling motor. Is there something I have missed. Help is greatly appreciated as my night visibility is horrible now an not satisfied

As far as night visibility goes did you adjust the screws on them to aim them higher yet? They are probably pointed too far down.

I have the 11 lights and the auto leveling feature worked but that annoying light came on the dash so I unplugged it lol.

Did you pull out the fuse to get rid of the AFS light? If you pull out the fuse you lose the auto level function.

For more info the headlights are out of a 2012, and I have a 2008. Many report a rewire that sewell Lexus completes before shipping...Surprised many others have not had this problem..Or do you not have auto leveling either?

Ok, that helps me verify that it is a pin out issue..if anyone has any pictures of the pin out you receive from sewell....and or when I get home I will also compare my old headlights to my new ones.

Sewell Pin outs - Untouched





I have an 08 and these straight plugged into my car operate the autoleveling just fine.

Auto leveling should still work. Only the side to side will not.

I am expecting my LED lights from Sewell any day now, and want to makes sure that I am understanding this correctly. Do I have to repin the lights or are they pinned correctly to work with the 08 harness and I can just install them?

Thanks

Thank you Digger for the pin out picture, I just manually adjusted for now. when I get a chance I will compare. If I remember correctly the pin out for the auto leveling sensor is correct then but there looks to be a few more wires which most likely is for led. But t help those in future I will document for those whom do not buy a re-pinned headlight. Thanks again men,
