Low battery in the key remote caused mine to do that.

Corrosion on a ground, possibly a loose faulty connection at a door or hood switch or faulty control module. A shop with good Saab diagnostic info would probably be the most desirable method of repair.I had a 2009 Odyssey with the same proble and it was only one year old at the time , the problem was corrosion on a ground bolt in the passenger side sliding door , that would allow a change in the resistance in the circuit at random and set the alarm off.

I have a 2007 Saab 9-3 and the rear window regulator on the driver side broke, when I disconnected the plugs that control the switches I got that message "Theft Protection Failure". More likely you have a loose connection in one of your doors. You have to remove the inner panel and take a look.
