Something is improperly aligned in your door hinges, or something is wrong with the door switch. with the door open, see how hard it is to push the button that the door pushes when it closes. the fact that you have to put some pressure on the door to cause the fault to occur makes me think it might be in the door hinge. your car is new enough that it might still be under warranty. if you can i would take it back to the dealership. this is something you should deal with because it's a safety issue. if your door doesn't latch properly it could fly open in a collision. hope this helps.

You need to adjust or replace the switch in your door jam. It is set too far in, and any pressure is making it connect.

2006 BMW X5 Door open message, inside light goes off & on, and the alarm keeps going off


You have a defective door ajar sensor switch. The switch is located on the door latch of each door inside the door. In order to find out which one is the cause of the false warning a trip to the dealer is required so they can scan the systems control module while the warning is on. If you want to guess start by replacing the drivers door switch first.

spray your door lock with dw40. sounds like the sensor in your door frame is not making correct contact. look on your door frame. all door frames. and see if you can spot any torn rubber or anything that could cause the sensor to not correctly close
