How to see open doors in the display

Hi guys,

You know when the car is on and one of the door is open, or the trunk and the display between the Tach and Speedometer shows a car with open door -- well mine doesn't show that when the doors are open. I couldn't find anything in the manual to set it up.

Does yours show it? If not, did you guys have to do something to set it up? Do you need the alarm for this to work?

thanks,

It doesn't have a seperate screen like the e46 does. The warning light turns on after you drive/reverse a couple feet.

It'll yell at you and tell you that you're in danger or falling out of the car. Happens to my trunk pretty regularly because I hate slamming the thing and it should have come with the pull shut feature, as should have the doors.

I'm glad someone asked this. I just took delivery of my E91 and noticed that too. I don't think the new method is as good. On our old e46 you knew there was a door open before you drove off, i.e. before it was too late. With the new one, if your passenger gets out and doesn't shut the door completely you end up driving off and have to stop again.

The lights won't go out, too.... So thats kind of the same signal as the sign in the dashboard we had in the E46...

Have to get used to it but it works :-)

Thank you guys.
I shall try it out tomorrow and see how the warning system works. It's too bad to you have to drive away before you get warned about open doors.

cheers, :rocks:
