My wife met the guy that owned the home before us, I did not. She said she did get a "creep vibe" from him. Whatever that means.

Can these things get into dreams? I am curious as I have been having repeating dreams involving a woman I do not know, nor have never known.

The RC car is not without explanation. Given the age of your child, and the vehemence with which young children play with their toys, paired with the cessation of activity upon moving the controller indicates that your little tyke had caused a wire or a soldered bit of the circuitry in the controller to malfunction.
However, both you and your child hearing a female voice originating from the basement is altogether a different sort of phenomenon. While I generally do not believe in supernatural explanations for most "hauntings", because I have personally seen the supernatural explanations, and most people are fortunate enough never to see them.
In spite of my general aversion to spiritual explanations, two people hearing a voice is a major thing-- not so much the toilet seat-- gravity and a thirty plus year old house can cause doors to swing open, pipes to make ungodly noises, and a bunch of other spooky things, so directly attributing this to your creature is not a 100% shot. The voices, though.
First of all, these things (essentially low-energetic non-visible & possibly extra-dimensional beings) can usually only generate sufficient baryonic matter/energy to mayyyybe get one person to experience them, and usually only vaguely, like an odd smell or a cold spot.
For something to speak to you, to call out, to both you and your child, should be sufficient proof that you need to leave it alone. As you were suggested to do by another poster, lay off the Ghost Radar (which is mostly bunk but just showing interest is sufficient usually to give these things more power.)
Ideally, you should energetically cut off the basement as well. Use a holy water barrier on the doorway in keeping with whatever your religious or cultural beliefs are. If you are not certain of how to perform such a ritual, consult your local cleric. Do whatever you can not to think about the thing in the basement, do long division in your head if you have to block thoughts of it. While it will not go away, it will realize that it won't get energy from you anymore. If it tries to frighten you as a last ditch effort, understand that fear is useful if you are facing a bear or a man with a gun. A bodiless entity which can barely call your name is not something you should fear. To do so only plays its game, allowing it to suck in the extra energy released by your increased respiration, adrenaline, and body heat. And if you do that too often, then it WILL become something to fear, and then you will have to sell your house.
Do not try to get rid of it. Do not let somebody else try to get rid of it. The only reason you should allow someone to try to get rid of it is if they show up at your house unannounced and apropos of nothing, and ask to get rid of it. Preferably they will identify themselves as being part of a high religious order, have the documentation to back it up. Thelemites and Jesuits are preferable. Otherwise, they are underqualified and will only worsen the situation. This especially applies to local clerics. DO NOT LET THEM DO A HOUSE BLESSING; a house blessing is like giving the creature a nice snack and will make things a bajillion (technical number) times worse.
I have no citations for my sources beyond approximately twenty years of experience dealing with this kind of nonsense.
