Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try help you with this.

Mark :

Using VCDS you can check the last 4 alarm activation causes by checking measuring block group 20 in the central convenience module. The triggers are shown as numbers and if you hover your mouse pointer over them, VCDS will display an explanation as to what they refer to. If it is the interior monitoring sensor that is triggering the alarm, you can adjust / reduce the sensitivity via the Adaptation function under Advanced Functions of the central convenience module.

Mark :

Your local dealership should be able to adjust this quite quickly.
