Default AFS Off After Coilover Install

So I installed my BC Coils on my 09 AWD yesterday. I noticed the AFS Off light flashing when I was backing the car out of the driveway. I tried turning it off and on with the in-dash menu, but it says that it is "ON" and won't move from this position.

Did I whack a sensor or something when I was changing the coils? Anyone know where it would be located? I appreciate any help...

Keep us updated. I'm looking to drop my car on BC coils in the next couple of weeks.

Yea... it was just the sensor bracket on the rear driver side... Put it back on *** backwards after the coil install... Flipped it back the other way and now it's all good. durr.

You have ride height sensors. You may have unplugged or damaged the sensor

Does the AFS adjust themselves after raising or dropping your car?

Same here. Thinking about getting BC Racing coilovers soon too. Good thing I found this thread in case it does happen to me.
