Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic

One of the most common causes for this issue here is a fault with one of the door latches itself.One of the latches can be sending an incorrect signal on what position the latch is in (example: locked or unlocked or opened and closed).This will cause the alarm to go off like this here if for instance your door shows locked but opened at the same time this sets off the alarm even though the actual door may be open and unlocked.Most common is the drivers door latch itself as it is the door that is used the most.
You will need to have the fault codes read out/checked to see what codes are set and from there those codes diagnosed to repair this issue.A compatible scan tool is needed for this that can communicate with all computers in your model.The scan tool is also used to monitor the door latch signals to locate one at fault needing replaced.
