Barry and Sue, thanks for sharing this information. I would never have even thought about the possibility of it occurring or the cause. Wow.
I drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee with keyless entry. On three different occasions the remote start feature has activated unexpectedly. Twice parked outside and once in our garage. On at least one occasion, the rear hatch entry door has opened on its own accord. The problem is, you push the key fob twice on those buttons (remote start and rear entry) in rapid succession and it happens. Well, guys tend to carry more than one thing in their pockets and apparently other "stuff" like other keys, coins, etc., bounced against the buttons just right and .......started or opened. This is dangerous and apparently without dismantling a bunch of stuff under the hood by an electronics guru, there is no fix. It is amazing to me that there are not some steps an owner can take to disengage this remote junk.
My wife has a 2014 Cherokee Trailhawk and carries her key in a small, hard sided plastic case to prevent this from occurring. With at least two-thirds of a Walmart Super Center in her purse, it is probably a logical solution
Alas, I don't carry a purse but probably should given the stuff I like to carry in my pockets.
In any event, I mention it hear as a cautionary tale to others that may have these keyless wonders.
Thanks again for the post on the generator self starting. Life was simpler when you started them with a rope, but sure wasn't as easy!
