Is your Myvi still under warranty from Perodua? Go give it a checking at the SC :) If not then most probably you can get it done @ acc shops ;)

How old is your battery?One of the symptom of an ageing battery.

Good feedback from the folks here and I'm going to add some more since I had the same problem

1. Send back to SC for warranty
2. Battery possibly dying
3. Door switch malfunctioning (or could be bonnet switch)
4. Indoor cabin light short circuit or malfunction (mine kept switching on by itself until I had the wiring fixed)

I had almost the same problem. I changed the battery and fixed the in-cabin light at the same time during the warranty period so that was that.

You can test the door switch thing yourself. Press the door switch yourself and arm the car. Hold it until it goes off or release and see if the alarm goes off. Try for all 4 doors, boot and hood. Check to see if the doors close properly enough to press on the switch.

For my in-cabin light, I had it on "door" mode and it wouldn't switch on even when the door was opened so that hinted either the door switch or the sensor or circuit was broken somewhere. That one the SC settle for me.

Honestly - I wouldn't spend any money fixing the stock alarm and go invest on a good aftermarket alarm. The Myvi is so incredibly easy to steal it's no funny.
