So this morning I hear what sounds like my car/truck horn chirping (as if I am locking with key fob).
Walk outside, and my truck horn is chirping about every 15 seconds.
Then started getting faster.
I unlocked with key fob, relocked, and it stopped.
Anyone got an idea what's going on?

Wierd. Did you accidently press button on fob? I have accidently actuated the alarm with fob in pocket before.

No, was actually watching tv when I first heard it (thought it was the oddest sounding bird, especially since it was 2 am).
Keys were on the shelf (was not even near them).

No and yes.
The lights were flashing every time the horn honked.
Last time I drove the truck was Monday.
Drove it today (supposed to be heavy rain), and it started right up.
Initially, I thought someone was trying to break in, but the motion lights (in carport) did not come on until I walked around looking for a reason.

Long time ago, my wife's Toyota Highlander was chirping (alarm)...ended up being the battery.

True story, my wife was finishing up her graduate degree and at the time Peta was doing bomb threats at researchers because of animal experiments. My wife went to leave and her car was making those chirping noises. She called police fearing something wasn't right due to recent threats...LAPD bomb squad, etc. shows up. She laughs at it now, but was pretty scary at the time. It was the battery not a bomb thankfully.

Kinda funny, but kinda spooky.
Same people put the value of a fish over a human.
Kinda screwed up mentality.

Some of those people are nut cases for sure. It was scary at UCLA at that time...cannot remember year. Bomb squad had her stand behind the wall, etc. before they would open the hood. They took it serious.

Let us know what you find out.
