    Tonight the wife and I were out for supper and took my truck. I have a 2016 F-250 xlt. As we were eating our supper a guy comes in the restaurant and asks me if the white Ford f-250 in the parking lot is mine. He precedes to tell me that his wife mistook it for their truck and lifted the door handle and now my alarm will not shut off. He wanted to let me know so my battery wouldn't drain down. So I went outside and unlocked and relocked the truck with the key fob. No big deal. When we left, I told my wife that just lifting the door handle will not set the alarm off. So I am puzzled as to how this lady made the alarm go off. Has anyone else had this happen. They were driving a newer f-150 and was parked right next to mine. Could their key fob activate my truck?

    It's never happened to me on my 2011 F350 - I try to open the door alot not realizing that it's still locked.
