Sounds like a fuel delivery or ignition problem.

Check for codes and get back to me.

Also, need year, make, and model, and engine size to proceed further.

Horn keeps going off unexpectedly at night

Nothing wrong with the car. It is getting a signal that mimics your remote's "panic" signal. Someone in your area may have an alarm with a remote controlled snooze. If the car was at fault the times would be random

Park brake light goes on

it sounds like that might be a short in the wiring somewhere, I'm not an expert on cars and trucks, but being a computer geek, usually when something pops on randomly and or stays on unexpectedly, it tends to be a short in wiring somewhere, however I would recommend getting a second or even a third opinion on this.

Warings lights coming on, SLIP indicator,CHECK indicator, VSC OFF indicator,comes on.

Sounds like a wheel speed sensor may be out of range as far as expected values compared to other wheel speed readings and the VSC goes off because it cannot work with unexpected data values coming into the VSC module. There may be a false high speed reading on one or more of the wheels.

Dies unexpectedly, randomly

It could be that you are having problems with proper spark with the engine. It could be a rusty cap and rotor or problems with your solenoid coil or ignition coil.

1995 concorde 3.5 randomly dies and wont start. Then will start and run fine.

I had that symptom, along with the sudden unexpected downshift at speed.

Both problems disappeared after replacing the ignition switch.

1993 Ford Escort 1.9L Auto Randomly Stalls

I don't have the solution, but I have the same exact problem on my 1991 Escort 1.9L with auto with 120K miles. I replaced the IAC with no difference. In fact I unplugged it, and still had the random stalling. Also disconnected the EGR vacuum line...still stalled randomly. After it stalls it always starts right back up again. Sometimes it will act as if it's going to stall, but comes back to normal idle. Park or Drive makes no difference. Acceleration and all normal driving is fine. The next thing I was going to try is hooking up a timing light and watch to see if the timing light stops flashing as it's stalling, and/or hooking up a fuel pressure gauge somehow, to the fuel rail, to see if the pressure drops when figure out if its ignition or fuel related.
