It depends what is setting it off. If it is just a loose door latch, it is usually easy to fix. Lock the car and set the alarm. Pull on each door handle to see if a door switch opens and sets off the alarm. If it does, adjust the latch on the door to close the door more fully.
If it is not a door switch, maybe the inertia switch is too sensitive. Unless your model has an adjustable sensitivity, that problem is harder to solve.

SOURCE: 1998 Ford Windstar alarm goes off randomly

Ours does the same thing, and every time it goes off we find an interior light on, or the glove box is open. Somehow the electrical circuit from the lights sets off the alarm. *shrug* Weird...

SOURCE: Explorer alarm goes off randomly

There can be many things causing this. In my experience a bad battery can short while the vehicle is parked. Its easy to have tested and Autozone or Oreillys will test your whole vehicle free.

Next possibility would be dirty Battery cables or loose battery connections to the Ground wire. Of course, some vehicles have additional triggers for Glass breakage and motion. Sometimes on cars with Autoload leveling, the Air pump will work to level the car and the Alarm will sense the current draw and vibration and go off.

These Alarms are not foolproof. You have a "Panic" button on your remote. If another person has a device casting this signal your Alarm will pick it up and activate. Your Dealer may have testing equipment for your system to correct the sensitivity of the unit. I hope it is simply a bad battery and your problem will go away with a new one.

SOURCE: My alarm on 2002 ford

most likely you have a door switch problem, you must take to shop to have it scanned, and they can tell you what door it is. most times it is drivers door, because that is the door that gets the most use.

2007 ford escape popping noise in front end when turning & braking,can be felt in brake pedal

You may want to raise the front wheels and check for loose wheel bearings by rocking the tire-excess rock the wheel bearing needs replaced. Also check the tie-rod ends-they should be stiff not easily moved. If they move easily replace the bad one. Also check the boots-two on each-on the CV joints-if they are torn or seeping grease you may want to have them checked.
