It's the horn.

You will need to eventually get the remote for the system. But you can unplug the module to stop it temporarily.

Your power door locks will not work till it is plugged back in.

It is located under the drivers side of the dash. Below is a diagram of the module.

I'm going to have the module unplugged. I will order a remote for the system. Until it arrives, I understand I will have to lock the door manually. WOW! Thanks again for the info. Awesome!
