So I'm sitting in the driveway, key in garage, wife at mall with other set. Car starts.... WTF!!!!! Had to go get my key and shut it off..... Yesturday I went into the store came out and car was running again.... I don't understand??? In garage my key was laying right side up so there was no reason of an accidental button push.... In store, maybe??? I doubt it..

Anyone else have this happen?

Thanks for the links, I have read them posts already. I have a 2010, the 2011 updated so you can't lock your keys in the trunk or car.
My keyfob always worked, so no issue there, i think?

I did get the latest firmware load form Dodge a few months ago because of the car not starting at all from the remote, that happened every blue moon though..... Maybe there is another fix? or soon will be?

I went into the garage to find the car inexplicably running about a month ago. I have no idea how long it had been running when I found it. Could the keyfob have been triggered inadvertantly at some point? Maybe, but it seems kind of unlikely. It hasn't happened again since, but it worries me somewhat to think the car might sponaneously start up in a sealed garage without my knowlege.

i've tried to do a search but i'm not finding anything.

do all 2011 392's come with remote start?

i remember my buddy's old Charger SRT8 having the key fob that would remote start his car, but my SRT8300C doesn't have it.

do all 392's have the key fob remote start?

Great..... My car started by itself again while in the garage. I wasn't even home. My wife was sitting in the living room and heard it start......

Could there be another Chrysler made vehicle near by? They both may be on the same code. I had a similar issue with my Audio system in the house. My neighbor has the same brand and he would turn on my system when he turned on his. Had to put in a new code to keep that from happening. Could this be the same?

Not sure? I thought it had rolling codes? Something to think about tho.....

Thanks

I believe that the engine only runs for 10 minutes when started "remotely".
