Can Rear Sensors on 2015 BMW X5 Be Disable for Bike Rack Use


Is there any coding that needs to be performed so when a bike rack is attached the sensors won’t be going off all of the time? 2015 BMW X5 w/ M Sport package

Usually when vehicles have rear sensors there is a way to disable them in the settings of your vehicle - you shouldn't need to take your 2015 BMW X5 to have something done to the computer to accomplish this. You'll want to check in your owner's manual for any specific instructions on how to to this.

If you don't already have a hitch I recommend checking out the Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # SH56VR because it's hidden behind the bumper until you connect the receiver, and then the connector block is stainless steel so you don't have to worry about it getting gunked up with corrosion.

For a bike rack I really like the Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B because it's easy to use, is compatible with a wide range of bikes, and looks amazing with the matte black finish.

Attached are some videos for you to check out.
