Default Car alarm going off for no reason

Hi, i have a 1998 ford ranger xlt with the 2.5 liter 4 cyclinder, 5 speed manual. When ever i lock it, 5-10 mins later the car alarm goes off. so i basicly can't lock the truck with out disconecting the battery. with school starting and me storing my books in my truck, i kinda need it to lock and not start hocking and lights flashing after 5 mins. It is the Factory car alarm.

Any ideas on what could be causing it? I have replaced the battery in the key fob, worked last time, not this time... I'm wondering if there's a fuse that's burnt out? Give me some ideas other wise I'm going to have to carry a wrench and undo my battery every morning when i go to class. Thanks in advance guys.
