It probably does it during the day too.
So, I'm guessing the door ajar switch.
Do a search on the door ajar switch.

My friend told me that there's like a 1 in 5 chance that someone's keyfob will work on yours also. Whether or not that's complete BS, I don't know, but perhaps someone who lives on your street has the same keyfob code as you?

I told you Brad you got gremlins :P But yea at the dealers the sales staff each have a "master" fob that can unlock any vehicle on the lot, so maybe someone near you has a fob on the same frequency
