alarm or something?
The other morning when I got to work, I parked my car, and locked it from the key button as I walked away like I always do..a few minutes later one of the guys came in and said my lights were flashing so I went outside and sure enough it looked as though there was an alarm going off. But, to my knowledge, the car doesn't have an alarm. If it does, I don't know how to use it. There was no siren going off but the hazard lights were flashing as well as the low beams. I just unlocked/locked the car again and it stopped. I'm guessing I did something particular when I locked it the first time? maybe like a feature to locate the car in a parking lot or something? Anyone experience this or know what happened?

Never seen this before. Did you spill anything on your hazard light button?

Nope, I don't even bring drinks into my car. The low beams were flashing too on alternating flashes to the hazards..

when you normally lock/unlock the car, do blinkers flash?
if it does, someone (maybe previous owner if you are not the original) activated the alarm without alarm modules actually being there.

hmm. Yes, the blinkers flash when I lock or unlock the car remotely. I also noticed that when I lock the car, the little red clown nose LED flashes rapidly for a few seconds first before resuming its regular much slower blink frequency. Does that indicate anything?

try removing hood sensor and lock/unlock again.
