Its the cars theft deterrent system. A few weeks ago, someone wrote in asking about it. They had taken it to the dealer, who had run diagnostics and told her the car was ok. They didnt tell them it was normal though, and she was scheduled for more tests! Look in the owners manual, page 107 if I recall correctly. It supposed to scare thieves, not the owners!
