Default Door locks chattering, clicking and horn sounding randomly!

Hello again, apologies for all the posts, im trying to tackle all the problems i seem to be getting in one go. Ok, i had to jump start the car (the car has been stood for a few weeks before i came to having the time to tinker with it) when i got it started the rear door locks randomly chattered, the horn was sounding intermittently and there was also an intermittent clicking coming from what seems like behind the top of the dash.

I have a remote key fob but this has never worked. I read on an older post someone was having a similar problem with the door locks chattering but the horn/clicking seems to be a new one. Oh also the parking brake bing bing sound is again randomly going off in quick succession for about 6 'bings' then stop. If anyone has any thoughts on this? thanks!!

As for the chattering Id start lookin for chipmunks or squirrels!

Lol, honestly all I can answer is I know the factory alarm system is under the top of the dash in the middle..

yeh i know!! i described as chattering as someone else on the forum did and seemed to get a few responses...not sure chattering is best way of describing...its basically the clunk of the door locks going up and down

is there a way of disarming the factory alarm, im guessing this is why it randomly sounds the horn (if the alarm uses horn when activated)

The Remote Keyless Entry Module, as Dill said, is located in the dash above the air-ducts. It doesn't go bad too often but it is dependant on a fully charged battery so if your not putting out a full charge, I'd check that first. A low battery puts out a lot of problems including the radio and gauges and the RKEM. Also some other problems could be one of the solenoids on one of the doors. Here's an older thread.
