Question about Cars & Trucks
You may have a broken wire in the harness that runs from the car to the tailgate.
The wires bend backwards and forwards every time the tailgate is opened and they eventually split the insulation and the wires poke out and touch each other, causing short circuits and problems with the alarm.
Take it to a local mechanic and get a quote to fix it.
I've done this before and it's about 2 hours work.

When a battery starts to go bad it will set the alarm off constantly. Check the date on your battery and if it's between 3 and 4 years old most likely this is the cause. I had it happen before.

I have a similar problem, my tailgate stopped working with the outside handle and the remote but can be opened manually from the inside. I don't have an alarm so there is no problem with that but did you get a solution for the tailgate problem that I could try?
