I have a 2009 ford escape that i bought used. I have found it running when the key has been inside the house. I dont have the remote start sytem on it. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this
Does any of your neighbors have the same car? If so, maybe your car is picking up their remote start command. Have your local Ford Dealer check your option codes and see if you really do have that feature. My '00 Grand Prix has keyless entry. I bought the car used and it wasn't until I checked the option codes on the RPO sticker that I discovered that it had that feature. The remote start feature works by radio frequency. It's unlikely, but can happen, that your car and a neighbors car are on the same frequency. So when they start their car, yours starts too. Kinda like if you were both listening to the same radio station. HTH. -Jim
