Is there a certain time this happens or is it arbitrary? One of the networks did a story regarding car burglaries They showed someone walking down a very congested area while activating a remote ... if they got an audible beep ... they simply found the car and helped them selves BTW ,,,SOME GARMIN GPS HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO ACTIVATE CAR ALARMS.~~~~~http://apps.fcc.go/ecfs/docum/view;jsessionid=F8phPtPTLM9yz1XVYq2bfMnQ2TXfzxYGQspYL1RG7J2mxXTq2sCy!-1221852939!-1969853125?id=7021674976

I have the same issue with my escape, and no the alarm on the FOB is not getting hit by accident...that can be sitting on the table and the alarm goes off, I shut it off and 10 mins later it goes off again. No one is near the car. I have seen a video about this so maybe it will help you... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxowpSibGQg
