Theres a few things you can try here.
1st thing is you can disconnect the hood pin contact switch located in the engine compartment on the drivers side near the shock tower. Disconnect it and leave it disconnected and see if the problem goes away, if it does then reconnect it and see if the problem returns. Obviously replace the switch if that is the problem.
Second thing you can try is pressing the Lock/arm button 2 times when arming the alarm instead of 1. What this will do is disable the Tilt sensor as well as the interior protection sensor. The interior sensors on these cars are a common failure, and there was an updated sensor available but you would have to check to see if your car has already had it fitted or not.
If all else fails you can take it to your local dealership for diagnosis. Their diagnostic computer stores a counter of every time each alarm sensor has caused the alarm to go off which makes it easy for them to see what sensor is causing the problem.
