It is the same two-beep sound the car makes when a door is ajar and I try to use the remote. I simply find the door, close it and try again and the doors lock. This time all the doors are closed. I dont think it is a reprogramming thing since I can still hit the panic button (holding down the lock button for a couple of seconds) and the alarm goes off.

sounds like the sensor in one of your doors isn't adjusted correctly and it thinks your door is still open.

No mods - - - very happy as is!
