Default 99 Accord Alarm Going Off at Random! Why?

My 99 Accord LX alarm (Honda) is going off randomly when the car is locked.
When it goes off it will sound for a minute or so then shut off. It may
repeat this again in 10 to 20 minutes. It seems to have started not long
after I went
through a car wash. The weather in the area has been very cold...
consistently below freezing.

Any experience with this or suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Check all of your doors to see that the interior light goes out at least
an inch or two before closing. If any of them goes out just as it
latches, see if the switch is damaged, or glue a shim to the spot where
the switch pushes. If you have replace with a non-Honda stereo, an
unused wire may be dangling inside the dash and shorting randomly.

Curly,
Great post. Keep up the great work. Your advice was far better than the
advice that I planned to give.
