check the hood contact switch.its black right next to the master cylinder.may have an interior sensor it a factory alarm?do u park on an incline?u need to disable it using ur key.let me know if u need instructions. the best easiest way is to check the dwa counter and it will tell u how many times the alarm has been trigered and from door contact,terminal 30,hood,trunk,but have to go to the dealer for that.dont disconnect the siren either.its powered internaly and will only make u thrown it and break it.
