Does this only happen at home, at night? Or does it happen all the time? How many key fobs do you have and do you know where they are all the time? Or a better question is where are the fobs when this phantom is going on?

it may be a faulty switch but wait until a more experienced member gives a response. you may also be having interference question does this only happen at your house or anywhere?
