Odd Beep Sound

Recently when I have gotten near the drive side door and put my hand on it I have heard a light beep right before the alarm signal beep. Is this normal or some signal like my key is dying? Anyone experienced this before?

Yes, I think it may be the heat.

Thanks for posting this. I'm getting that beep now too, even when the engine is not hot. I don't have an OEM alarm. It sounds just like the video.

Does anyone know what this is????

Sounds like comfort access to me. Go see the dealer.

Thanks but I don't have comfort access (that's the bizarre part). And the beep is not annoying enough to go to stealership.
