2020 Model X falcon door keeps on opening itself

Our 2020 Model X is possessed. Since yesterday passenger side falcon door started to open by itself, repeatedly over and over. We had to move it into garage as the rain last night got inside the car.

I did a power off. It did not help. The door still opens by itself.

Besides the door issue, one of the key fob does not work. Instead of opening the driver door, double click opens/closes the malfunctioning falcon door.

I felt like my 18 X was possessed when I pressed the driver’s door exit button on the screen and the driver falcon wing popped opened instead, and wouldn’t close. Car was towed to service for a module replacement which took 2 weeks. Now the same wing leaks. Any one have problems with leaky wings?

Also there is no way to manually close these doors when they fail which is a serious design flaw. Has that changed on the newer models?
