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...

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.
