2001 BMW X5 backing sensors

The backing sensors activate and ''beep'' nonstop when backing up although there is nothing behind or around the car.

I can press button to turn off but it does it again every time I restart the vehicle.

Any advice would be greatly appreciate.

HOW DO I FIND THE LOCATION OF THE 2001 BMW X5 3.O emergency fuel door release?


Open the boot and to the right hand side of the boot you will see a green round button pull on it and it will pull the locking actuator back allowing you to open the fuel flap, if you can't see the green button then it may have dropped behind the boot cover and you will need to pull the cover back to get to the green pull button.

What would be the causes for brake lining study light to come on in a bmw x5 2005.


Study light? Do you mean warning light?
There are sensors clipped into the brake pads on the front left and rear right wheels. When the brake pads get very thin, those sensors rub on the brake rotors, and the light illuminates in the dash indicating that it is time to replace the brake pads.
The light can also illuminate if something damages the wire to the sensor. I usually replace my pads before they get down to the sensors, so I re-use my old sensors. Although the wires are fairly well secured to the suspension, after a few years, the wires can get chaffed from the wind blowing them around, and the damaged wire can turn on the warning light.

You will need to replace the oil level sensor. It is located on the bottom of the the foward oil pan. Do it during a oil change, you will have to remove the oil first. Here is a link to the part at Bimmer Specialist. Call and make sure it is the correct one before you buy. Good Luck.
