Does it have an aftermarket radio installed by any chance?

This is one of the common side effects of an incorrectly fitted aftermarket stereo. Can you disconnect it ?

There will be 2 plugs going into the radio, disconnect both of them & switch the ignition off & lock the car, wait 3 minutes & unlock the car & check if the fault has corrected itself. If it has you need to get the stereo fitted properly. If the fault is still there carry out a BSI reset.
