2013 mini cooper started by itself

Asked by May 14, 2015 at 09:08 PM about the 2013 MINI Cooper Base Convertible

Question type: General

I turned my mini off as I usually do.. push the button popped out the key bob.. left the garage door open and took my garbage can to the street... came in pressed the garage door closer.. went in the house.. came back out 3 min later and the car was running.
tried to turn it off by pressing the start button a couple time .. didn't shut off.. went to get the key bob and when I came out it turned itself off... any ideas folks?

Logically that can't happen with the key out of the unit. Is someone pulling a funny on you? Have you got something wet internally?

no one around to pull a funny on me... dry day.. nothing wet..

The only thing that can have an effect on this system is RF interference. By chance is your garage door opener RF or IFR?

I have a 1/2 hp master lift.. don't know more than that.. hasn't done it again. But thank you for your response.

Ok the RF interference is the only thing remotely related to your problem that I can find.
