If the DWA red LED status light (the clown nose below the rear view mirror) is giving you 10 fast means that one of the monitors is registering that it is still open. And from the explanation/description you gave of what's been going on...I'd have to think the issue is the driver's door actuator.

Also..remember that the 3 button remote contains 3 features that are all individual systems but work in conjunction with each other...some even sending data to the same components (GM III):
  1. EWS - immobilizing system...shuts down starter/fuel/spark until the ISN (individual serial number) coded to all the EWS components has been verified (data is sent to & from the EWS/DME/Ring Antenna & transponder inside the key)
  2. FZV - keyless entry/central locking system which locks/unlocks the doors & trunk as well as the fuel filler door...and can operate the sunroof & windows
  3. DWA - anti-theft alarm siren system...which arms/disarms the alarm siren system and monitors all the doors, trunk, hood, interior motion sensor, and tilt sensor.
