Here's what I did. I turned off the Automatic Security in the settings. That seemed to have fixed the alarm problem. The front passenger lock still needs to be locked manually. Last time I had this problem with my ML the dealer was going to charge me $1200 per door to fix the problem. Something about a leak in the vacuum system that lifts and pulls down the locking mechanism. I passed and said I'll use my fingers, they're free
If anyone out there has any experience with this issue let me know if this is a DIY or should I just live with it.
