Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Factory security watches the door, hood and trunk ajar switches. If it sees a switch circuit close when the system has not been disarmed then the alarm will go off. It's possible that you have a wiring issue or a door that isn't closing properly but the most likely cause for this would be a bad ajar switch.
