SOURCE: where is the bonnet closed sensor on the landrover

After more thorough search in better light and removing grill etc. I found the bonnet sensor is underneath the RIGHT HAND bonnet latch (opposite side to battery for RH Drive models). there is a mini plug,with 2 contacts accessible from engine side without removing the grill, release plug latch to remove plug and short out the two pins of the plug then tape to secure. I can now lock the car without the horn blowing. As for replacing the actual switch, that will be another small job but when I return to the UK.

SOURCE: persistent '' highbeam out '' message

go to your local auto parts store and they should be able to hook up a code reader and clear that code off of your computer in your car

SOURCE: My BMW 1 series keeps saying the bonnet is open

Check the bonnet pin (small switch that is pushed in and out by the bonnet opening and closing) which tells the computer if the bonnet is open or close, maybe its faulty or broken and the computer thinks the open is always open even though its closed.

1996 BMW 740il bonnet will not open on driver's side, have replaced cable for the bonnet, help


REMOVE THE FRONT KIDNEY EMBLEM, GET A DENTAL HOOK FROM HARBOR FREIGHT, AND TUG ON THE OPEN SPOT WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE ACTUAL CABLE, THIS WILL ACTIVATE THE LATCH TO OPEN. GO TO THE JUNKYARD TO PRACTICE ON AN ALREADY OPEN ONE SO YOU KNOW WHERE IT IS.

3 series 55 reg bmw. alarm keeps going off, dash says bonnet is open but its not. thanks


Sounds like the bonnet switch might be going out. You have an electrical contact switch that tells the alarm computer if the bonnet is open or closed. Either a miss adjusted or worn switch will send a false signal to the computer making it think it is open when it is not, you will also want to check the wiring that goes to the switch for signs of chaffing or kinks as the wire itself could get and send a false signal.

Bmw alarm keeps going off


Had the same problem. I cleaned the bonnet open/close sensor located at the back left of the engine compartment, and sprayed it with wd40. Worked a treat for me. Another solution is to push you lock button twice. This turns off the interior movement sensor.

Car alarm goes off for no reason.


Common fault is the bonnet sensor, when this happens to me I open the bonnet press the sensor plunger a few times, it fixes it for a while. Get this checked or replaced .
