My daughter has a 2005 Kia Sorento V6 4WD which has developed an annoying alarm fault - when you turn left, the open door warning alarm comes on and the cabin light flashes. Appreciate any advice on how to fix this problem as it's driving her nuts

The light switch or driver door needs to be adjusted\. Barnray

Hi Mal,

I see Barnray has you sorted on this one.

FWIW, I had the same issue on my diesel Sorento.
One Kia dealer said it was the switch and had me come back when the switch was available. The new switch worked fine for about 20 kilometres then the alarm went off again. I tried another Kia dealer who said it's not the switch. He said the door needed realigning. This was realigned and the alarm did not go off unnecessarily again.
