    If you dont want the aftermarket sound, just get an oem divertor valve - simples :)

    My door does that randomly... I would be interested in finding out what is causing it ..be careful it doesn't drain your battery I have had to turn my light off inside the car as it stays on if the car doesn't think the door has shut!

    The door thing is a common as muck issue to do with the switch built into the door latch... extreme fix is a new door latch but not cheap (apparently), the cheaper fix is to remove, clean, relube and replace the latch... although tends to just give you more time until it goes again...

    Mines does it more when its real hot outside...

    My door does this too but only when hot, after I have pulled off I open the door and slam it and it's goes off, not good slamming the door but it gets rid of the annoying door open sign.
