Today I was driving and...
  • the doors started locking and unlocking, while...
  • the "open door" dash light flashed, and...
  • the turn signal sound went off repeatedly.
It probably went on for about three minutes and then stopped.

Any thoughts on what would cause this? Electrical gremlin? :new_multi:

Please note that

1. I was also getting a misfire due to a bad plug wire (since replaced)
2. I have a slightly sketchy remote starter/alarm installed (there when I got the car)

Could it have been a short or something related to the bad wire?

Trying to determine if I should expect this to happen again.

the fact that you said you have a "sketchy" remote start alarm installed makes me think there might be a short in the wiring pertaining to that. maybe there's a faulty/loose connection in that wiring specifically, but definitely that's a place to start checking first.
