I was coming home from my father in laws house this morning, there was a light that came on the dash, it was a red car with all doors open??? Few minutes later the engine light came on, the car runs great. When I got home I took off the positive battery terminal and left it off for a few minutes then started the car, the red car light is still coming on but the engine light is off, my car has keyless/power door locks, usally when you start moving the doors will lock, they didnt do it this time, when I go to lock them while im moving they unlock on there own, I reprogrammed the keyless, usally when i hit the button twice I get one beep from the horn so I know all doors are locked, now I get 2 short beeps??? Any idea guys?

Spray your driver's door latch (and the others if you have the time) with some WD-40. Open and close the door mutliple times. See if that fixes it. The two short chirps indicate a door is ajar. The mechanism is gummed up.

would that also cause the engine light to come on?

It won't cause the engine light to come on.

If it comes on again, go to autozone (or advance-I think they do it) and get the codes read.
