I have a 3 month old 2012 Kia Sportage. I hear an audible sound when I open the drivers side door. It does not happen all the time but enough that it drives me crazy trying to figure it out. Does anyone have any ideas? Can't find anything in the manual? Also, it seems to happen only when parked in the garage. Lights maybe???

Thanks in advance!

good, now if you could add that to your location profile on the left and fill in the details of what you are driving, it would be a big help for answering future posts - thanks. :D

Probably you have your sunroof open even just a little bit.

Hi, I am new till this forum and I have had my Sportage for just over two weeks. The car is a Sportage 2, 1.7cc, and we live in UK. About a week after we purchased the car an alarm goes off when the drivers door is opened. The alarm goes on for about six tones and stops when the key is inserted in the ignition. I cannot find any reference to it in the handbook, and have checked that the sunroof is closed properly.
Any ideas what is causing this to happen..?

Ditto on the sunroof.

And yes, it is annoying. Maybe if your sunroof is just tilted I can see someone missing that. But if you can't see half your roof isn't there when you park, well you deserve all the bird poop and rain that falls in.

It depends on the order you do it in;

- Open door, then switch off ignition: Beep
- Switch off ignition, then open door: No beep

If you open the door first and it beeps, you can stop the beeps by pressing the black button on the door pillar (The one that operates the interior 'door open' light)
