Check for a blown fuse in your rear compartment. Also you probably have a blown/leaky shock. Dont drive to much you will damage more things.

2006 BMW X5: SELFLEVEL SUSP. INTACT - Started when I had the battery replaced. Is there a reset switch somewhere? Owners manual says to take it to the shop - surely there is a reset somewhere.
