I recently bought an '08, and I've noticed that if I happen to open the door before I turn off the engine, then once I do turn off the engine the car beeps at me until I close the door (or turn the engine back on). If it started beeping as soon as I opened the door ("Hey, your engine is running, stupid!"), that would make sense, but it doesn't start until I turn it off. And there's nothing on the dash display to tell me why it's beeping.

Can anyone tell me the point of this alert? It's almost like a "you left the key in the ignition" warning, except of course the only "key" is the fob, and it's in my pocket.

I have the same problem and it is really annoying. The worst part is that if you turn off your car and sit for a second it won't do it. What's up with that?!

The beep from the door can be killed by either closing the door or by pressing the button on the door frame (lower B pillar). That will stop the beep and lock the steering wheel.

I agree completely, this is the worst warning beep I have ever experienced. I even had a Nissan 200sx back in the day that talked the warnings to you. I just don't understand what this warning is all about. Do they really worry that I opened the door too quickly? How can closing a door with the car off (and it can be any door by the way) help? This also has a tendency to make us ignore real warnings. I hear that beep every day several times during the day. Does anyone know of a way to disable this warning. Not looking for "close the door" answers. I am looking for the "push and hold the ignition button, push the brake pedal 9 times, then turn the steering wheel left then right" kind of answer. Thanks again for all the wonderful people on here giving good and answers and sharing opinions. Great site!
