    Everytime the suns out and the car gets hot inside the cabin my alarm goes off!
    And when I drive the car and its hot I get the bonnet warning light up which indicates it's open even though its not.
    Is this a common fault? Or will it be an expensive trip to the dealer?
    This is my first BMW and apart from the dodgy electrics I can't fault it.
    The chassis is excellent and it has been given Giant slaying performance with the black box
    My last car was a 350z and before that I had a 200sx I kept them both untill they where six years old and never had any problems like this can anyone help?

    Sounds like you got a problem with your bonnet switch.

    Thanks Neal why Did nt I think of that!
    The heat must be causing the plastic to expand on the switch which must be opening the contacts and then setting the alarm off.
