factory keyless goes off by itself

Hey folks,

The car in question isn't mine (I'm not very up on the NE's). It's an '04 V6 vert. The factory keyless/alarm (whatever it is) goes off all by itself pretty often, even with the top up and windows up (and nothing going on around it to set off a shock sensor).

I noticed a black sensor on the left side of the knee-bolster pad. It seems that this might be some sort of shock or motion sensor. Is this true and is it adjustable? I saw some references in other threads to it but didn't see anything blatantly explicit. I obviously can't go out and look at it myself (or I would have) so I was hoping to have a game plan when I do get my hands on the car.

Any info is appreciated. Thank you.
