cut the wires, cap them, toss the smoke detector away and put a plate over the hole
Have you checked the battery in the detector? Just because it's hard wired doesn't mean there isn't a backup battery. Often times you can change the backup battery and things get fixed. Sounds like this isn't the problem though, so...
If all else fails, smoke detectors do go bad...often after 10 years or so. Replace it via a new one from Home Depot.
