It sounds like a door switch is intermittent causing the alarm to go off. Are you certain all the doors and hatch are closed? Try opening and closing all of the doors/hatch and see if the light goes out. If it doesn't, one of the door switches might be faulty. The switch might be integrated into the door latch so the latch would need to be replaced. It is like that on the Rangers but I'm not sure about the Explorers
