Door ajar warning in BMW X5 2008 model

I drive an X5 3.0 SI - I recently noticed that there is no indication on the dashboard or any message on the onboard computer that any of the doors or trunk is open. Only the floor and lights comes on when the doors are open.

Can anyone tell me is this situation is OK or I should have a BMW expert to check it.

SOURCE: Beeping with no warning lights

Hi,

Based on some readings, the beeping sound indicates cold outside temperature. If that is not the case, then the sensor located behind the front bumper has its connector detached or may be faulty. Of course the owner's manual could provide more details.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 2002 BMW 325 - key locked in trunk

There are several suggestions out there on how to retrieve BMW keys from the trunk. Many of the ways I tried failed, and it takes 2 to 3 days to get a new key made up. In the coupe there is the center piece in the back seat that folds down. Then on the back wall there is material that will fold down that is held up with Velcro. Behind that you will find a rubber insulation that is mostly cut and looks like a door, but not all the way. Carefully cut the rubber to remove the piece. Now you will find a metal wall, but there is a large piece that is tack welded on. I got turned around and kicked it with the bottom of my foot and got 3 sides loose. Then a softball bat knocked the final side loose. Pull that out and trash it, the final barrier is the insulation that is held in place with plastic clips that can just be pushed down. After that you can a pretty large hole to work through and get the keys. Just put everything back in place other than the metal plate and you will never know anything was done.

I have a 2005 Ford Focus and the fuel light stays on. It is very dim, even when I shut the car off.


Principles of Operation
NOTE: When installing a new instrument cluster, the new instrument cluster must be configured. Refer to Section 418-01 .
The instrument cluster is a hybrid electronic cluster (HEC) which receives and outputs information using both hardwired circuitry and the controller area network (CAN) communication circuits.
It is very important to understand:
  • where the input originates from.
  • all the information necessary for a feature to operate.
  • which module(s) receive(s) the input or command message.
  • if the module that received the input controls the output of the feature, or if it sends a message over the CAN to another module.
  • which module controls the output of the feature.
The instrument cluster carries out a prove-out when the ignition switch is turned from the OFF to the RUN position to verify the integrity of the warning indicators. The charging system warning indicator, the low oil pressure warning indicator and the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) illuminate when the key is turned to the ON position, and then turn off when the engine is started. The seat belt warning indicator proves-out for 60 seconds and then turns off, or turns off when the seat belt is fastened. The following indicators prove-out when the key is turned to the ON position:
  • door ajar warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • anti-lock brake system (ABS) warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • O/D OFF indicator (3 seconds)
  • air bag warning indicator (6 seconds)
  • brake warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • door ajar warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • shift up indicator (3 seconds)
  • low fuel warning indicator (3 seconds)
  • traction control indicator (3 seconds)
  • check fuel cap indicator (3 seconds)
  • passive anti-theft system (PATS) indicator (3 seconds)
Low Fuel Warning Indicator
The instrument cluster utilizes fuel level data supplied by the hardwired fuel pump module to control the low fuel warning indicator, which illuminates when the fuel drops to a pre-determined level.
Your best bet is to take this to the Ford dealer , unless you have Ford IDS - factory scan tool to diagnose this

Where is my door chime located impala 2002


It comes through the radio an left front speaker .
The audible warnings alert the driver of a system concern or a critical vehicle condition. The radio generates the audible warnings through the left front speaker. The radio receives audible warning requests via the class 2 serial data line. If the radio receives multiple audible warning requests, the warning with the highest priority sounds first. The Multifunction Alarm generates the audible warnings on vehicles with RPO UL5 -- Radio Delete Option. The following lists the audible warning priority and the pulse rate:
The radio activates the door ajar audible warning as requested by the body control module (BCM). The BCM sends a class 2 message to the radio indicating the chime frequency of a medium rate and at a continuous duration. The door ajar warning sounds and the door ajar indicator illuminates when the following occurs:
  1. The body control module (BCM) determines that the driver's door is open and the signal circuit low. The IPC receives a message via class 2 from the BCM requesting illumination of the door ajar indicator.
  2. The vehicle is not in park. The BCM receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the gear position.
Class 2 Serial Data Link
The class 2 serial data link allows the following modules to communicate and share data with each other:
?€¢
Auxiliary Power Drop Connector


?€¢
Body Control Module (BCM)


?€¢
Driver Information Center (DIC)


?€¢
Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM)


?€¢
Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC)


?€¢
Powertrain Control Module (PCM)


?€¢
Radio


?€¢
Remote Playback Device-CD Player (if equipped with UQ3)


?€¢
Inflatable Restraint Sensing and Diagnostic Module (SDM)


?€¢
Vehicle Interface Unit (VIU) (if equipped)

The class 2 serial data link allows a scan tool to communicate with the above modules for diagnostic and testing purposes.

7 dings and a beep when starting 2000 ford explorer? what does that mean


NOTE: The generic electronic module/central timer module (GEM/CTM) is connected to the ISO link and is diagnosed through the data link connector (DLC) with a scan tool.
There are five warning chimes and lamps the GEM/CTM controls: headlamps operating without the ignition on (chime only), door ajar (chime and lamp), key-in-ignition (chime only), driver seat belt warning (chime and lamp), and message center.


Audible Warnings Warning Condition Lamp Duration Audible Duration Audible Output Safety Belt 60 Seconds 6 Seconds Chime, 60/Min. 740 Hz Key In Ignition - Continuous Chime, 120/Min. 740 Hz Headlamps On - Continuous Chime, 240/Min. 740 Hz Door Ajar Continuous 1 Second Single Tone, 1000 Hz Message Center (Tone Request) - 1 Second Single Tone, 1000 Hz
When the is turned to RUN or START from OFF or ACC, the chime will sound for six seconds or until the safety belt is buckled.
The will turn on for 60 seconds or until the driver safety belt is fastened. Both the chime and the lamp turn on at the same time.
If the safety belt is buckled before the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START, from OFF or ACC, neither the chime nor lamp will be activated.
Anytime the is changed to RUN from START while the safety belt warning indicator is activated, the safety belt warning indicator will remain activated until either the timing sequence has been executed or the safety belt is buckled.
When at least one door is ajar and the key is in the RUN position, the door ajar cluster lamp is activated and remains on until all doors are closed. A warning tone will sound once any time the key is in the ignition switch and any door is open.
The key-in-ignition warning will sound when the driver side is opened with the key in the and the in OFF or ACC. It will continue to sound until the key is removed, the is closed, or the is in RUN or START.
The headlamp-on reminder chime will be activated if the headlamps or parking lamps are on, the key is not in the ignition switch, and the driver door is opened.
A single tone will be provided each time a ground signal is received from the message center. A one-second tone will sound for warning indications from the message center. A 100 milli-second tone will sound for each message center button depressed.

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.

GMC 2003 1500 HD Crew Cab, Door ajar light goes off and won't reset, even when nothing is wrong, I have had it looked at five times and no help. They replaced some things and took out the remote starter...


Who looked at it ? Dealer ? Did the place's you had look at the vehicle hook up a factory scan tool an view data to door module's an the BCM ? Door ajar is a fuction of the door modules an the BCM - body control module . One of these modules is seeing an input that makes it think door is open .
The door ajar indicator system consists of the following components:
• The driver door module (DDM)
• The passenger front door module (PDM)
• The body control module (BCM)
• The instrument panel cluster (IPC)
• The driver information center (DIC)
• The driver door ajar switch
• The passenger door ajar switch
• The left rear door ajar switch
• The right rear door ajar switch
• The liftgate ajar switch

Driver Door Ajar And Passenger Door Ajar
The DDM and PDM receive a discrete input from the respective door ajar switch to indicate the status of the door. The DDM or PDM then communicates this status to the IPC via class 2 message. The IPC, upon receipt of this class 2 message, will illuminate the appropriate door ajar message in the DIC and also send a class 2 message to the radio to activate the door ajar audible warning when the following conditions are met:
• The transmission is removed from PARK
• The vehicle speed is greater then 8.05 km/h (5 mph)
Left Rear Door Ajar And Right Rear Door Ajar
The BCM receives a discrete inputs from both the left and right rear door and liftgate ajar switches to indicate the status of the doors and liftgate. The BCM then communicates this status to the IPC via class 2 message. The IPC, upon receipt of this class 2 message, will illuminate the appropriate door ajar message in the DIC and also send a class 2 message to the radio to activate the door ajar audible warning when the following conditions are met:
• The transmission is removed from PARK
• The vehicle speed is greater then 8.05 km/h (5 mph)

Could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Looking at data paramiters on the scan tool tool would show what switch is faulty or what part is .
