Thanks for the update.I'm sorry for the late reply. For some reason, I didn't get a notification that you had tagged me. My solution worked extremely well (as noted in my most recent update to this thread) for nearly 3 months...zero alarm triggers, I was pleased.
Then 2 nights ago, it went off again. Since I only did the drivers side door, I'll now be disabling the passenger side door. I'll update if this officially solves my problem.
I'm going to start with the left rear door and see how it goes. I previously cleaned and bridged the hood switch but it had no effect so I put it back. I'm sure my neighbors will appreciate if my car shuts up since my driveway is closer to their house than mine.
