You have a door lock/unlock switch problem or a door lock/unlock switch wiring problem.
Many mechanics fear working on doors, since its a wholly different world of tools and techniques
than engine work.
Once you get inside the door lock/unlock switch area (its almost always the driver's side, rather
than the passenger side), look for a worn wire or end of a spade lug near or touching a ground, and
automotive grounds are any part of the body or door - the door is not a good ground, but it does
end up being grounded through the hinge.

How can i turn off the car alarm in my 2003 chevy malibu

If you don't have a key fob you're out of luck. It is needed to turn the alarm off completely. You can shut it off by using the door key to unlock then re-lock the door, but the alarm is still armed and will go off if the passenger door is opened after the drivers door is locked

Alarm goes off for no reason

It can be any of the car door not got properly locked or the door is locked but the switch is not sensing the door locked.Open and close each door again properly.
Or else its problem with any of switch wiring getting in contact with alarm wiring causing it to happen.And last thing alarm connections needs to be inspected.Its getting short somewhere in between.

There are few helplinks with solutions,to troubleshoot these types of problems.I suggest going through these links.

I have an 04 malibu power locks go up and down all the time, even when the car is not running. Can you please help me.

I think thats normal, if you turn off the engine, you should be able to open /close the door locks.

Locks go crazy,alarm goes off, now the car won't start.

I've had this problem under warranty on my '05 Malibu LS. They replaced and reprogrammed the fobs. Looking in my shop manual, it seems the problem is from the content theft deterrent (CTD) system. My car started doing this two years later off warranty and now I just lock the doors from the outside with the key or by pushing the lock stem buttons by hand on each door. The security option in the DIC needs to be set to RKE for this to work though.
