Truck is a 2012 3500 Diesel(of course),totally stock(running gear wise),4500 miles.Truck was parked outside,put cell phone and keys on front seat,I live out in the country.Couple hours later noticed the truck was running,locked.Had to get my spare set to get in it and by that time it timed out and shut off,doors still locked.
The temp that day was the warmest so far this year,hit about 85 or so.Anyone have issues like this with the remote start?Really don't need the remote start,so can I just disable it? Planning on calling the dealer about this.Thanks..

The last one I heard of was caused by a errant vacuum cleaner. Generated a signal to start. In your case, I suspect the fob laying on seat got hot enough to malfunction. Keep keys in pocket when not operating.

Who had the spare. Someone might have accidentally hit the button. Just a guess

Well,yes it does have leather and the spare key fob was locked in the safe.Can a person just disable the remote start? Not in that cold of a climate during the winter and really don't foresee using it.

I have read the same thing about the remote start on these forums. I have the remote start and the EGR unplugged. My rig will still start when I press the remote button. In fact everything still works like normal except I have the check engine light on. I am going to run it like this for a few weeks and see ehat happens.
