I've had my 2016 to the dealer now twice to help resolve an electronic system that seems to have a mind of it's own. At about 120,000 miles the car horn started going off at random times. Over past couple months the head lights come on at random times. While sitting in my car eating lunch today - the dashboard lights start lighting up and relays clicking as if the world were coming to an end. No - the ignition switch didn't fix this problem - dealer has replaced it twice. Now I just take the battery cable off after every drive.

Any ideas?

This is a shot in the dark... but it’s worth a try.
We have a 2007 Honda Civic that would randomly sound the horn in the middle of the day or the middle of the day without any prompting. The culprit ended up being a dying hood latch sensor. Every time the sensor failed, it opened a circuit that made the car think that a theft/ break in was occurring, therefore the alarm would sound.

To test this theory, just unplug the hood latch sensor. If it works, just replace the sensor. If it doesn’t, your not out any money.
