Nothing wrong with the car. It is getting a signal that mimics your remote's "panic" signal. Someone in your area may have an alarm with a remote controlled snooze. If the car was at fault the times would be random.

Just a guess - the switch function is probably to tell the brain there is sufficient fluid pressure. If there is insufficient pressure or the switch or wiring is faulty a warning light is likely to switch on...

You must check your bushings on the rear shocks/struts on top and on the bottom any one if severely worn will cause the anti lock brake module to run and the traction control because it is sensing a slight movement both are controlled by the abs module for the system also the stabilizer links can cause a weight shift in the wheels letting a sensor activate you also have rear spindle bushings and wheel hubs that have sensor rings on the hubs if the spindle bushings are worn this allows it to twist and uneven traction is the result in the front you have strut rod bushings on each side that connect to the control arms again if worn it's allowing movement triggering the traction /abs sensors and also a worn cv axle will slip slightly activating the system start with the cheapest bushings and links and strut arm and spindle bushings and shock/strut bushings and mounts any movement will activate the system ok please post back with progress you made write down everything you've done so far and I will get back to you also tire treads that are different will cause uneven traction I'm a taxi mechanic in nyc.with 50 years experience in all phases of the automobiles mechanics and I will get you to the problem cause obviously I'm not there so I need you to communicate with me precisely what you have done so far because I can't check the vehicle myself good luck stephen

if its an aftermarket alarm, which im sure it is, find the brain to the aftermarket alarm and unhook it. trace the brain back from the car alarm siren hardware. it shoud b mounted somewhere under the hood. theres not a lot of available space in the engine compartment. so you should easily find the siren hardware. trace the wiring back to the brain and disconnect it. it cant be factory alarm. factory alarm only goes off when u dont use keyless remote or key to unlock a locked door or trunk. factory alarm blows horn and blinks parking lights

Dear Rodney.
Please go to the car parts store or the public library and get a repair manual and look at the job.
I do "driveway repairs" at my house, and this one could take you many days, and dozens of hours, not to mention the special tools you might need.
Look at the job in one of the books, or go to a shop and give the man or woman 5 or 10 bucks and ask them how to do it before you start.
Your car may be down for many days, and perhaps once it is done, you might decide never to try that again!
God bless your efforts.

The fact that you have indicated the knock is in a very specific area of the engine indicates to me that the knock is there while idling and with you listening with the hood open. Spark knock, the kind that is caused by using lower-than-recommended octane gasoline, usually only happens when the engine is under load, not at idle.
I think you have a mechanical problem - valves, lash adjusters, maybe the cam itself. Do a compression check. If you have valves not working properly or not closing properly, this should help you find the area to check for damage.

It is located in the fuse panel under the dashboard on the drivers side. It will look to be about the diameter of a quarter and have 3 prongs when you pull it out. It will also be marked where it is located exactly on the underside of your fuse panel cover.
