Customer Question

I have a BMWX3 2014 with the back up feature which makes a loud sound when coming close to objects. I like it, however, I have a trailer hitch bike rack I keep on the car, so it sounds off every time I back up. It can be annoying to passengers. Is there a way to disable the feature? If so can you walk me through how to do it? Thanks Joe

you can turn it off on a case by case basis by simply pressing the PDC button when you engage reverse
you can prevent it from automatically activating when reverse is engaged by changing the vehicle's settings:
the option is under "settings" > "parking" in the idrive menus
