I am having this nightmare issue today.
The alarm only goes off when I access the car (unlock via the key)

I disconnected the hood latch socket. Alarm still goes off.
I pulled out Fuse 48 in the trunk. This actually set off the alarm again!
I will now test the battery voltage, but I've had low voltage before and never had the alarm fritz! (12.6v off and 14v on)

I can lock it twice to disable interior sensor, but that's not my issue (the key unlock sets off the alarm)
Just in case, is it easy to unplug the interior sensor??

PS: I HATE car alarms. Is there a wire I can just cut?
This is only one step below your car being on fire.
I'd rather have my tranny die, honestly. Less drama and attention.
