If this is a Factory installed Alarm:
Usually the problem for "falsing" is a Door or Hood Switch that is making contact.
I would start with the Hood Switch
Unplug the witch & try for a few days.
If it still "falses" go to the Door Switches. Removal of the Door Panel will be needed to get to them, as they are part of the Door Latch.
You could try spraying liberal amount of penetrating oil (wd-40, etc.) into the Outside area of the Door Latch & open & close the Door numerous times to see if this will free up the Switch

Otherwise, Dealer should be able to scan Alarm System to see if there are any Faults or bad switches
