My car makes a beeping sound everytime I turn the steering wheel to the right, and sometimes, when I am driving straight. Also, the "car door open" indicator light comes on (with the beeping sound) and all the doors are locked. It's becoming really annoying. Please help!!!!

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Bridget, It sounds like one of the doors on your Sorento is not closing all the way. Even if you have the locks on, if one of the doors is not properly sealed, the car knows that it's not completely shut and will beep at you. I recommend you open and close every door to make sure they are indeed closed. If it is still beeping at you then it will need to go into the shop to figure out if there is something wrong with one of the doors or if something is wrong with the indicator system.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive Is the beeping noise sound the same as the door ajar noise? if so it may be related. The car door indicator light coming on should be diagnosed by a shop with the software to determine which door ajar switch is sticking open.
