I had the same problem. The alarm system on my 1997 Le Sabre self-actuates. Luckily, it went off once when I popped the trunk. I went to Auto Zone and bought a generic trunk replacement lock. I noticed the original lock had a funky push-pull type of switch used to activate the alarm. This switch was likely hair-line on/off and when the temperature changed, it activated.
I went ahead and replaced the lock without the switch, but you can try simply unplugging the switch through the hole in the metal behind the lock to see if that might stop the alarm from arming itself (or cut the wire).
Good luck, it's a "hairy" problem.

replace battery in the remote. There should be instructions in the manual if you have one. I believe you need to replace battery and make sure remote is working. then you unlock and lock doors while holding the trunk button do this several time until you let go of unlock button and the locks move by themselves. This is how you reset the car security system. The reason it does this is so no one can steal the car. Or take it to a dealer and ask them to fix the alarm. I hope this helps the owner of the car. lol

You might have a bad relay. Locate the relay in the fuse/relay box. Use the diagram that's usually located on the inside or back of the cover. When you find it, look at the part number usually located on top of the relay. Look for another relay in the box that has the same part number. Switch that relay with the one you want to test. If the problem goes away then replace the relay.
