    in the mean time... have you considered pulling the fuse for the horn? If you can't disarm it, maybe you can just shut the damned thing up

    So replace the driver's door switch or all of them ?

    Well it depends on which one could be bad. It could also be the hood switch(which I forgot to mention). I'm not sure how to test them individually honestly, unless you jumped the wires that go to it together to make a closed circuit(which i'm guessing is all the switch does) and see if the alarm still sets off for no reason.

    Would this switch also control the interior lights coming on? Could you turn your time to stay on after off to 0 and open the door and push the latch in manually to see if the lights go off one at at time? Just a thought, I don't really know and it surely can't be that simple.

    I read somewhere(dont recall where) that car thieves were disabling the alarms in chrysler vehicles by doing something to the dome lights,either shorting them out or pulling the bulbs.My friends van was stolen and he mentioned something about the dome light. You might try pulling the bulbs to see if the alarm still sounds,or check the wiring to see if they are connected somehow.

    Yes, it does control the lights coming on. That would also be a way to check them. Before I replaced mine, I could open my door and the lights would not come on, nor the door ajar light. I could wiggle the button around though and the lights and etc would come on. The driver side door switch went bad on my '94 T&C as well, with the same symptoms. I guess maybe because the drivers door is used more.
