I know you don't read them all, but there have been a lot of threads regarding this exact issue. My dealership had no clue so they checked the battery to try and make me feel like they did something.

You should have started talking to the car, telling it that you were sorry that you had to go in. Then you could have 'caved', and gotten back in and started it back up.

I would like to think that this will be my reaction if it ever occurs...

I work in the In-Vehicle Technology department so I typically respond to post related to Sync, navigation, and MyFord Touch.

I recommend contacting my partner, Noemi, to see if she's familiar with this concern. Her user name is FordCustomerService.

I have had this issue 3 times before I talked to the dealer about it. I told the dealer about they did the mft update and asked me to call them if it does it after they do the update. A few days later I had been driving it pulled in the drive way, shut it off and went inside. My wife was out front and came in and told me it was doing it again. I went out and sure enough it was. I called the dealer and told them it was doing it again. The service guy said it shouldnt do it because there was now power to the system. He thinks its a interference of some kind. He then asked me if I had just used sync, Bluetooth, or sirius. I had it on sirius. He then told me they realty don't know what it is, and see if I can get it to do it again. so last night at work ,mind you I had been there for 6 hours before, I went out front for something and I was about 30 feet from it and it started up again. Not to sure how to replicate it, but if anyone finds a pattern please post it up, and maybe that can give the service guys a chance to figure it out.

Just my 2 cents, I'm no tech or something, but when it occured to me it was pressing the lock button on my key. when you approched tour car, did you have the remote entry key in your pocket ?

what kind of remote entry system do you have ? the regular one that operates manually with the key or the automatic one thatpicks up your key in your pocket ?

I'm sure it has something to do wiht the lock mecanism

Understandable, although this is only happening on cars with MFT installed (of course that means it could be due to the Sony audio system, which seems likely from my experience with it.)

Have you considered...

...contacting a catholic priest for an exorcism? Clearly there are some restless spirits trying to get out of your trunk.

I dont expect grease monkeys are going to figure out computer problems or electrical for that matter.
"The service guy said it shouldnt do it because there was now power to the system."

That statement is 100% false.
