I have a 2015 Edge with pushbutton start - thus the fob is quite large and the front surface is raised. This makes the buttons prone to pocket activation.
First happened as soon as soon as I got the car and after parking it I looked out the window and the rear power tailgate was open.
Several days later while exiting the car the panic alarm went off and the tailgate opened again.
switched fobs but same thing.
I wear cargo pants and keep it in the thigh pocket and I bought a leather cover on eBay but it still does it; while climbing a ladder in my garage - as soon as I raised my leg the car alarm went off.
My wife has a 15 Taurus and her fob is dish shaped so the buttons are protected - no problem.
Ford dealer says I can't have one of her "scooped" fobs programmed for my car.
ANYONE ELSE EXPERIENCE THIS!!!!!!
