Error with bonnet sensor?

Hi all

Car in question is my 05 E90 320D

Whilst driving the car, the OBD will randomly now and then throw up a little diagram advising me that the car bonnet is open then disappear for a bit then come back up again. I know for a fact its closed as i always check before i drive off....(long story rofl).....

Anyways, I believe this has resulted in my car alarm randomly going off now and then, on the assumption that someone is trying to open the bonnet - the neighbours are not really pleased

Can someone advise me if they have had this problem before and how i can fix it? Can i just disabled this sensor? or do i have to replace it?

My MOT is on weds, worried the car will fail on this

any help would be appreciated

Thanks all

Probably faulty bonnet switch
Either that or adjust you're bonnet stops
Won't fail mot unless bonnet cannot be opened or secured shut
