2011 RAM 1500 - False alarms

alarm goes off for no reason usually 2 or 3 in the morning and the last week or so its been hapening more and more

Is this a factory system or an aftermarket one?

Maybe someone keeps trying to steal your truck.

Maybe somebody checking cars for change etc.

Isn’t that a good thing?
I would be much more concerned if the alarm went ON.

Could be car prowlers but i’ve also seen car alarms go off for no reason in the neighborhood before. We have had car prowlers from time to time.

The most common causes appear to be a sensor in the hood latch failing or a bad connection at the battery.
