Under the bottom of the outside windshield you will see a grate with slots that let you look down inside. One of the arms connected to the wiper motor must have come loose. Might be as simple as a clip keeping the arm on slipped off and then the arm too. There should be screws to remove the grating in view either if you lift the hood and look on the firewall or even on top on the corners of the grating. You can take that off and get into the wiper motor area. Let me know if this helped and ppppplease leave me a good thumbs up for the effort. I need to keep my score up. Thanks, The Raz Shack

Ours does the same thing, and every time it goes off we find an interior light on, or the glove box is open. Somehow the electrical circuit from the lights sets off the alarm. *shrug* Weird...

There should be 4 speakers actually. 2 in the doors and 2 in the dash. Your best option is to get the Haynes repair manual for your vehicle. This manual will give you step by step instruction on how to remove them and reassemble the dash afterward.

Have you been having trouble starting it? A real easy way would be to attach a multimeter,( DC voltmeter) and check voltage before and after engine is running. Should get 12-12.5 volts not running, and 12.8- 14.5 roughly when running, depending on how much charge battery needs at the time, which is regulated in the alternator.
If battery is lower than 12 volts, you may want to have it tested to determine it's condition.

check your battery,

You need to run engine codes. It's probably not the ox sensor (that usually makes it run too rich), but could be a map (or maf) sensor malfunction. If your car has a maf sensor, there are a couple of other sensors that work with this unit.
Reading engine codes should reveal errant readings, even if your "check engine" light is not on.
The other problem is that the corrugated tube that goes to your throttle body is cracked. This will raise cain with the accuracy of your air sensor. When you accelerate, it is possible that the rocking of the engine under load spreads the crack in the bellows enough to let outside air into the system midstream. This will make your air sensor read low and will send a wrong voltage to your computer and fool the computer into thinking that the engine needs less fuel.
Check all your tubes for these vacuum leaks.
