I had an alarm that did that.
Turn the sensitivity down a little. Should be a screw adjustment somewhere. Counter clockwise I believe. Try it little at a time.

hard to say...
My alarm had an inertia switch on the fender under the hood. I couldn't tell you where yours is at.
Another alarm I had was a cheapy and it was on the back side of the alarm/horn unit itself.
I wish I could be more help but without being there, Its hard for me to pin point.

Did you get a manual with the alarm? If so, I would look through it or take it back to where you had it installed and let them adjust it.

what kinda alarm?

If you have the alarm manual:

check this, next time the alarm goes off by itself disarm it, get in the car and look at the led (there should be an led light that blinks installed in the dash) and see how many times it flashes

most of the alarms iv installed, this flashing led is a code to tell you what tripped the alarm ie. door pin, hood pin, shock sensor etc.

the manual should tell you what the number of flashes means.

this is also depending on the alarm. which you did not tell us.

Shock sensor..... thats what I was thinking instead of inertia switch.
Couldn't think of the name.... Had a brain fart.

actually i know nothing about the alarm for the reason being that i bought the vehicle and it already had this alarm insalled and it didnt come with any type of manual or anything just with the little remotes for the alarm (used vehicle from private seller) so there for im not sure what to do.
