Door ajar warning on 18i

Hi guys, I just picked up my new sDrive 18i couple of days ago and found out that the door ajar warning is not working! I read the manual and found out that is the standard feature on X1 and I wonder why it is not working. I tried leaving my door open but there's no warning given even when I started to drive! I need some tips or advice here.

Can you take it to your dealer? You paid a premium... You don't deserve to figure out for yourself... Part of the premium is the service

I would like to find out if any other X1 owners here experience the same thing before or whether the feature is available on X1 18i. The standard answer from the dealer could be just "your X1 does not have this function!"

My thanks to csirias and Fliegenfranz for the reply. Does your X1 displayed the door ajar warning before or after the remote is inserted?

I had the oppoiste happen on my 18i.. a few times. All doors were closed but as i drove around corners or over a bump in the road, the door ajar warning came on.

It seems there is something wrong with the door sensors on the 18i, either too sensitive or not working. The problem is that i can not show it to the dealer, because it happens randomly.
