When my 2004 gt model is just sitting in the driveway not running. I hear this clicking sounds coming from the front passenger headlight area. Sometimes it is quite and sometimes it is really loud! When I open the door or hit a button on my key it stops. I even made it stop by bumping the qtr panel with my fist. Anyone know what that noise is coming from?

Yeah, you can unplug it if its becoming annoying. Before mine gave up the ghost it just started going off for no reason a few times before it died. You can pick up used ones pretty cheap on ebay if you want to take you chances on not paying full price for a new one.

If you'd like to test your alarm, open the driver window, close the door, lock the car with the FOB, then reach through the window and unlock and open the door. If the alarm sounds (you'll know if it does) then it works, if just the lights blink, your alarm has failed.

To replace, buy this:

Except that rather than switching the battery, just replace the unit.

Edit: There's also this video:
