I have/had the same issue with both my 2009s (both JDMs), and I know of at least two other people who have/had the exact same issue: the car starts honking on its own at seemingly random times, for 30 seconds at a time.
The first car spent a couple of months at the dealer last year, and they narrowed the problem down to a faulty remote key sensor right behind the glove box, and the problem was gone.
The second car wasn't so lucky, though; they replaced the same sensor but the car still honks for no apparent reason. Some days are better than others; it might do it for seven or eight times in a single day or night at times, or it might go for a week or more without issue.
I'm still on this. I'm probably going to have the sensor replaced again next week and see what happens. I'll report back with any changes.
1994 Mercedes E320 sedan. How it's done right.
2009 JDM Mazda 6 2.5 MTX #1. Most people are mediocre by choice. I'm not most people.
2009 JDM Mazda 6 2.5 MTX #2. A fool and his money - but it is his money.
1991 Mitsubishi Lancer 1.5 GLX-i sedan. Mom's. Don't ask.
