For about a two weeks now my car has locking all by it self. For some starnge reason even when I dont have the key with me, or they are laying on ground or table, the car locks by it self whne someone walks by it. Like today I was alone in my home, I had the key up stairs in the room right above the garage, where my Rav was standing at the time, and when I walked up to it to get something out it locker right in front of me. I took it to dealer and asked them what the problem could have been but they had no clue either. Does anyone had same or similar problem :?: ?? :?: this whole thing is freaking me out. I think my remote is possesed. :evil:

I can think of 3 Reasons:

1. I assume you have the stock alarm, the OEM one that came with the car? It has a cool feature that locks by itself if it's left unlocked for a certain period. This is precaution in case you are walking away and accidentally press the unlock button w/o realizing it.

Though my aftermarket alarm has some cool features, I still miss the stock alarm feature that autolocks.

2: One time I was at a gas station and I swear my car started locking and unlocking by itself. I think someone in the gas station may have had a frequency similar to mine. He was controling my car! I couldn't verify it and I don't think I'm that crazy, so maybe that really is what happened.

3. Derek's usually on the dot. Your car is possessed.

thanx a lot guys for your replies. I've asked the mechanics at the dealership today when I was working and they had no clue what could have been the reason. So I am forced to go with the most resonable explanation My Car And Remote Are Both Possessed

No need to sacrifice any goats or chickens just yet... I'd bet that someone nearby, or some RF-based remote you already own, is on the same frequency.

My Bose system remote was on the same freq as a neighbor's.

We'd both be changing FM channels and worse, the volume...

I resolved it by sacrificing the neighbor to the Bose remote gods.
