You know, I am not surprised at all if vehicles start themselves randomly.

There are so much electronic stuff on vehicles now things are bound to go haywire sometimes.

I am amazed at the options on my 2021 F150 XLT... it is far from the gold plated titanium option levels, and I still am learning about options it has even after owning it for a year.

I still have a ring of keys that fit all GM locks up to '68.
I was amazed at how often Pete keys would interchange.
How many different electronic codes can be used to remote control things? Not just cars, but lots of things. Can somebody adjusting their home temperature open your car windows?

There have been cases where TV remotes opened garage doors.

Well OP (Busdriver) hasn’t posted back since first post, so time to quit guessing until they do.

Talked to my service writer, he said there is no way to disable auto start on a 2019, said that feature was started 2022. Said probably a wifi signal close to my house

I’d be a little suspect of that explanation however I have had a key fob get picked up by a different car than mine in a parking lot before.

If that's true then I'd put in a battery disconnect switch. No battery, no start.

While a disconnect would be an option, lots to consider, such as presets and relearning the various idle settings. Not something you'd want to do all the time.

Few decades back I was helping a friend change jobs. Noticed a short pair of wires with a 9 V battery on 1 end, and a male lighter plug on the other. He said it would hold the presets while he serviced battery terminals. Might expand on that idea.
Guess I'm lucky. Leave battery disconnected for a month, only need to reset the clock.

I don't think a remote start will work if the vehicle is unlocked. I think you mentioned its parked in the garage. So, if you leave it unlocked, it should not remote start?...
