    Panic Alarm going off by itself...

    So I am convinced my car is possessed.... Friday my panic alarm (the beeps the car makes when you press the panic button) started going off by itself intermittently... also when I drive it makes the noise as if your low gas light were to come on... but it does this the entire time I'm driving! My front interior lights refuse to dim once you close and lock the car as well... Has anyone experienced this... or have any idea what is causing this... My car battery is disconnected right now because the alarm goes off 24/7...

    Please Help!

    from what youve said and everything ive read it sounds like a door latch (probly drivers) is going bad. the dinging sound would have been a notification of a door / trunk being ajar

    shouldnt actually open just unlock. theres a sensor in the latch the goes bad and the BCM thinks the door is open when it really isnt
