Cannot Disable/Deactivate Interior Motion Sensor

Hi.

I have a BMW 1 Series F20 and have been trying to Disable/Deactivate the Interior Motion Sensor while still having the Alarm Active. I have checked the Owner's Manual and it says you can Temporarily Disable the Interior Motion Sensor by Double Pressing the Lock Button on the KeyFob, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Can anyone help?

Is there a coding parameter that i may need to change?

Thanks.

Have you done any coding? I have found that if you have the mirrors set to fold instantly that you cannot disable the interior motion sensor.

Hi,

Yes i have coded my mirrors to close instantly on locking the car. Is that the reason i cannot disable the motion sensor?

What did you do to solve this?

Thanks.

You have to set it to the default value that has the delay, annoying, I know.

Not sure why it affects this but it appears to.

I had another question.. I have set my seatbelt reminder to 0 seconds but i still get a gong that lasts for 1 second. Is there a way to have the seatbelt icon displaying but not have any gong?

Did you disable the initial warning as well? Or just driver and passenger gongs?

I disabled:

ACSM => INITIALWARNUNG_GWF_IW=> NICHT_AKTIV

But when i disabled these two below the gongs were completely off but it also removed the seatbelt icon from the kombi so i made these active again.

ACSM => SEATBELTREMINDER SBR FAHRER => NICHT_AKTIV

ACSM => SEATBELTREMINDER SBR BEIFAHRER => NICHT_AKTIV


I then tried:

ACSM => GWF_SBR_WARNDAUER => WERTE=> 00

This left the icons on the kombi but i still have a 1 second gong..

I think there is always one gong when you turn on the car if thats what you are talking about.

The Inital Warning Gong when you start the car is disabled now so it doesn't do that. It happens when a passenger sits on the seat without the seatbelt on. Roughly 10 seconds after driving off there is a gong that lasts 1 second.

just put the seatbelt on or get over it. how often do you have a passenger not wearing their seatbelt? seriously. its dangerous.

I always wear my seatbelt and also make sure that the passengers wear them. It's only because i put my laptop or a bag on the seat that makes it gong.

Safety first.

In the event of emergency breaking, lap top bags and items on the passenger seat become projectiles and can injure occupants of the car. It's better to secure items in the back seat or trunk.

So how is my laptop shooting leftwards towards me in emergency braking? It will always slide right off the seat and onto the floor.

Sometimes for a quick trip it goes in the passenger seat, longer trips it goes on the floor behind my seat.

What if you break, swerve and your vehicle rolls over? All items should be secured in the cabin of the vehicle, as they can become projectile, causing fatal consequences - almost always preventable.
