How far is you car parked from your house?.Some key fob signals travel a reasonable distance and if you car is close enough the signal will travel from indoors to your car if you accidently press the fob button.

One other thing,has it been sluggish to turn over when starting at all recently?.Battery voltage drops can cause strange things to happen.
Hi Lag thats a thought i have an 02 Megane Coupe convertible that parks beside me but if my remote does trigger his i have never heard it but i will have a little walk about in the morning and have a try

my key does open the car from the house about 60' from the front door so i guess it could be little fingers

With regards to starting the car all seems normal and my battery volt guage is reading normal but i will keep an eye out but like i said i will have a walk about the other Renaults in the morning and have a go at opening them

Cheers Donald
