I had this problem with an aftermarket alarm on my accent once.  Check your battery cables and terminals, if there is a bad connection or any corrosion this will cause the alarm to act up.  if that is not the problem, try the fuse box, see if there is a fuse labeled alarm or something like that, if nothing else important is on the same fuse just pull it out.  Or you could just locate the horn for the alarm and cut and cap the wires on it.  That would disable the alarm from making any sound, all other functions would remain intact.  good luck.

It may be easier to just disconnect the battery at night. You could even buy a disconnect switch.
The siren is powered by a 10 or 15amp fuse number 12, but you would still have the hazard lights flashing. That is a different fuse. The actual keyless entry and alarm module gets power from several sources.

Could be a problem with the sensor, as their is a few sensors, door(s), hood, depending on he car a few others. One of the sensors could be going bad and is super sensetive or intermitten and even if say a gust of wind hits the wire, it'll go off. Im saying it's a bad sensor.

Have your battery checked for shorts. Mine was defective on a new Lincoln. Same problem. Even sat in it at 18 degrees one night to appease neighbors whom my alarm woke up.
Check connections at every possible point if the battery tests good.
Get up 30 minutes before alarm usually goes off and see if neighbor has loud car or slams his car door. Motion sensors can set it off too.
