    My Gen 3 (2012) hatchback now beeps when I open the door to get in. What's up? Thanks!

    There is a beep you can configure when the door unlocks, so if you're coming up to a locked car and use SKS (hands free/fob in pocket) to unlock as you put your hand on the handle, then it would beep as you open the door...

    Thanks for your response, but this is different. It's a long continual beep -- a couple of seconds.

    Yeah, could be. I'm hoping a low fob battery. I'll try that first. Thanks!

    I believe one of your windows (or sunroof, if you have one) is open (even if it's just a crack). Might we worth opening and closing all of them
