Locking doors while car is running

Only day 3 with the car. I'm sure there is a setting or something.... Still learning all the features/settings.

I don't have BMW connected features in Europe, on a US spec car. So, I can't connect with my phone, download apps, etc. Just a part of being in Europe I guess.

Every morning, I go out and start my car to let it warm up in the driveway. Then, I get out and go back in the house. If I try to lock the doors, the car gives off two loud HONKS.... at 7am.... and I'm pretty sure the neighbors don't like it.

Is there any way I can lock the car from the outside, while it's running..... with just a simple "beep" sound?? If the car is off, it just gives a beep when I lock it. Why does it HONK when it's running?

It’s a more recent ‘feature’ on BMWs with comfort access, to stop you accidentally leaving the engine running when you lock and walk away from the car. I’ve coded it off on my other cars busing Bimmercode but the app doesn’t support the X5 yet for this particular feature.

So what you can do it physically hold the key fob on the glass of the front screen then press the lock button. This way the car seems to think the key is within the car and locks the doors without the honk. Give it a try, works all the time for me a saves irritating neighbours on cold mornings!

you need to use remote start or get bimmercode or have someone code it off for you.

If you press the lock button three times do you not get remote start??

I haven't even tried. Hmmm. Didn't even know that was an option.

Crappy BMW "genius" spent a whopping 15 minutes with me.... half of that time was me teaching HER how to adjust the ambient lighting colors, because she's never seen it.

I had the same with my genius. I explained him how to install the ambient air cartridges and where they are located.

I think they basically only know how to create a connected drive account and how to pair with the car. And even that didn't work. Had to call CD helpdesk.

I wonder if any geniuses are frequently visiting this forum. Should be a great help for them.

the guys at the PCD know what they're doing. My mom had a primary CD account which I was using on my phoen with her login which didn't matter on the f15 but you need separate logins for the g05. He quickly showed me how to set up a secondary CD account. He knew everything I asked him, I was pretty impressed with his depth of knowledge.

I hope you figure it out.

Question: Why are you warming up your G05? Is it for your comfort or do you think the engine needs it?

Maybe this has something to do with ASS, but when I leave my car while it's running, with the FOB in my pocket, when I come back the car is off.

Me being the dumb ass I am...I decided to leave the car running and taking the FOB with me instead of doing remote start. Not even 2 mins, my alarm kept going off. I stopped it, but 10 seconds later...boom.

I had no idea there was a motion alarm inside, but once the vehicle shuts off...it seems to activate. I just remote start and let it be now.

Vtengr and randy..... neither is the case for me. I do need to go out and try the remote start though. If that works, it will no longet be an issue.

Will it remember the last heat and seat heater settings?

Heat - yes, seat heater no. However when I remote start, and its cold outside, my steering wheel and seats are warm by the time I get in.
