Ghost in the car

I went to meet a few friends for lunch today, parked away from most of the cars and when I came back I noticed the mirrors were no longer folded in... Ok strange, I got in and then I started the car and noticed that now the radio station is also on a Spanish station which I don't have programmed in my pre set stations. Wtf just happen? LOL, has this happened to anyone else?

It is not your car. It is just another car of the same color, which just happened to respond to your remote. It happens. Rarely, but happens.

My mirrors unfolded at some point after i locked the car and stayed that way until i returned. I only realized it because when i unlocked the car they started to fold in.

Different key fob to open the car? Each key stores the radio settings (and a host of other settings) from the last time it was used.

Dude, I have a ghost that always with and it likes to turn my ac on. I then turn it off. When i stare at the fan button nothing happens and the i look away, because its hard to drive while staring at the fan button, it goes back on! Sounds nutts I know but I'm not joking around.
