My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Most likely one of the door switches/sensors is sending an incorrect signal or the sensor that senses the ignition key/fob has a fault and is causing this here.Being a new 2017 model you should be able to get this diagnosed and repaired at no charge to you under warranty and this is the best option for this fault here.I suspect one of these is the cause and unfortunately a dealer will need to check and repair this issue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
