Panic alarm going off for no reason

This is an old problem. The car horn alarm goes off sporadically. I can't pull the fuse or I'll have no horn. I don't want to diagnose it at the dealer because it is 10 years old.
Is it possible to cut a wire that leads to the horn without disabling the horn? If so, can someone share a wiring diagram?
Thanks!

6Crew has the full workshop manual hosted: MAZDA 6 FULL WORKSHOP MANUAL!!!!!!!!!!!!

But I definitely don't advise just cutting cables without trying to find the source of the problem.

- Aftermarket alarm/stereo installed?
- Battery Cables nice and tight and clean?
- All your grounds are secured properly?
- No frayed wires anywhere?

^^ All things that could cause a random electrical issue.

I've read from a few sources that the micro-switches in the door locks corrode and break contact, making the car think a door has been opened. Stick a WD-40 straw in there and douse the latch. Open and close the door 20 or so times to get the liquid into the latch and help clean the corrosion out of it.

The WD-40 seemed to do the trick so far.
Fingers-crossed...
