    I have a rear door open warning light showing on the dash (door closed). Also the indicators no longer flash once when locking the vehicle using the central locking control. Fuse problem or just coincidence?

    alarm will not arm indicators wont flash if it thinks a door is open your led on the bottom of the rear view mirror usually flashes faster to tell you you have locked it but the car is not secure..

    rear tailgate or rear door?check for lights on in the rear with it shut otherwise its prolly a dodgy switch or wiring loom..
    330i sport a big chunk of berlin...

    I recently adjusted the rear locking hook on my tailgate to prevent 'boot lid chatter' over bumpy roads and after that the rear door reported that it was not shut when it was closed and locked normally.

    I took the trim off the boot lid on the inside of the car to gain access to the boot lid internals and removed the lock hook fitment completely, sanded down the paintwork on the inside of the bootlid and then reassembled with some grease on the bare metal to prevent rust, but also put in a few strands of 1.5mm copper from a mains infrastructure cable.

    I am certain that you all think I am a bit mental at this point, but I spoke to a good indy who said that my problem was that there is an earth problem, I checked with a multimeter and sure enough the hook was not earthed. With this mod, the earth was returned and all was working correctly!
