My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
Most common to cause this type of fault here is the door latch position sensor/switch.If this sends a false signal the door has been opened when it sees the switch in the locked state it triggers the alarm and then the switch may signal the door has been unlocked disabling the alarm on its own.I have seen these fail before like this here as well as the BCM (body control module) and had to replace the affected component.This will need tested further to be sure and then repaired from there.
Thanks Pete
