I can almost guarantee you that you have a door lock actuator going out. The is the motor that moves the door lock. One of the first signs of them failing is for the OEM alarm to go off at odd times. The paperclip trick will work to not let the OEM alarm enable. Basically it thinks your hood is open so it will not arm. It works, but sooner or later that lock motor will start acting up and you will have to replace the actuator. I hope you are luckier that others I have seen with this problem and no way to open the door.
