That's not factory, it's very likely your car does have an aftermarket alarm installed somewhere under the dash. Why it only blinks sometimes I have no idea, probably the LED flasher part is cheap shit Autozone junk and just doesn't work all the time anymore. It's been baking in the Cali sun for probably 10 years now.

If i could input anything, i would say it might be an alarm somewhere. check your lower left kick panel, check behind the dash in that general area for a valet switch. Even check for extra wiring to the battery area.

If you rule out the alarm, than I was in the same shoes recently. my rear view mirror lights were going on and off here and there. For my car, it was that little switch that turns them off when the door is closed. Got a new one and hasn't happened again......yet
