Mein Auto: 2007 650i Monaco Blue
07 650i Convertible Top Unlocked Alarm Problem

I run an engineering firm, and one of the things I always stess is "An engineer is not qualified on his technology, until he knows how NOT to use his technology."

In the case of the convertible top lock alarm on the 07 650i, this is a case of runaway technology application - just because. Application without a rational and ethical review of its contingencies/downsides. That is NOT engineering.

I am constantly having the car alarm tell me that the car roof is unlocked and binging at me as I drive down the road with the top perfectly in place. But, what it also does is assumes I must be some idiot, and locks out the windows so I drive around in the rain with them all down, or locks the top in the open position so I am driving around in the rain with it down, locks up the trunk so I cannot get into it and here's the best part......

It keeps the alarm condition for a solid half hour!!!!!!!! Whooopeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!! That way I can enjoy being parked under bridge overhangs in rainstorms for a half hour while the false alarm resets.....

The tire pressure alarm constantly goes off, even though my tires are all to spec, the "Headlamp" "Licenseplate" Lamp alarm lights are always going off.....

I took it into the dealership and they could find nothing wrong, and the problem is intermittent (like only happens in the rain or when I am at the airport 50 miles from home, etc).

What the heck do I do? Has anyone else had this problem?
