    Has anyone had an issue with the car alarm in their Model X? Mine started going off at midnight and has been going off every couple of hours ever since. I have the BlackVue dash cams and no one is around the vehicle. I called Tesla and they are sending the logs to the Service Center.

    I have never heard my alarm goes off ... In fact, even when there is a passenger inside and I walked away with autolock, nothing happens. I don't think there is an interior sonar detector. Maybe will try to open the door from inside and try to trigger it.

    I saw a post a few week back, in which the window was lowering and raising again by itself. Since the window action is triggered by closing the door, there may have been sensors involved. A service center visit was suggested. Of course, I can't find that post now.

    I see, in my previous post (that I can't edit?), I completely left out the connection that lowering the window with the car locked sets off the alarm. The OP actually watched it do this.
