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.

In allot of cases this can be due to a fault with a door latch sending a false signal that a door is opened when it is locked as this will set off the alarm like this here.Usually it is the drivers door latch itself as this is the door used the most.

Since this is a new model with low miles this should be covered under factory warranty at a dealer to be diagnosed and repaired at no charge to you and it would be best to have a dealer diagnose and repair this fault here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.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
