Interior motion sensor not working
 
Hello everyone. I've owned a 2009 650i for about 6 months now. I brought in my car for service at the dealership because the interior motion sensor wasn't working. They told me it was. I brought the car home dropped the top set the alarm. I dropped a towel in both seats and moved it in different direction with no results. I was even able to touch the red sensor, reach into the vehicle and move things around with out activating the alarm. Is there something I'm doing wrong or missing. The vehicle was there for a full day I really don't want to bring it back. I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance .

Drop the top, roll down the windows, lock the car with a SINGLE press of the lock button. Make sure doors and trunk are closed before arming. Then try reaching into the car, somewhere low since the sensors are down by the door speaker.

If you press the lock button twice it disables the tilt and motion sensors.

Thank you so much Yorgi. It does work. As soon as I passed my hand by the speaker it went off. I was under the impression that the motion sensor was located on the red alarm indicator.
