My sister sent me the below report.  I had not heard of this…I wonder if you do 
as described below to lock you car will the alarm system be turned on?

Remote Car locks--Be Aware of this
It was reported that a woman locked her car --- as she walked away she heard 
her car door unlock.  She went back and locked her car again three times.  She 
looked around and there were two guys sitting in a car in the fire lane next to 
the store.  When she looked straight at them they did not unlock her car again.

How to lock your car safely
While traveling a young man stopped at a roadside park.  He came out to his car 
less than 4-5 minutes later and found someone had gotten into his car, and 
stolen his cell phone, laptop computer, GPS navigator, briefcase...you name it 
He called the police and since there were no signs of his car being broken into 
- the police told him that there is a device that robbers are using now to 
clone your security code when you lock your doors on your car using your 
key-chain locking device.  They sit a short distance away and watch for their 
next victim.  They know you are going inside of the store, restaurant, 
or bathroom and have a few minutes to steal and run.
The police officer said...to be sure to manually lock your car door-by hitting 
the lock button inside the car, that way if there is someone sitting in a 
parking lot watching for their next victim it will not be you.  When you hit 
the lock button on your car upon exiting...it does not send the security code, 
but if you walk away and use the door lock on your key chain - it sends the 
code through the airwaves where it can be stolen, something totally new to 
us...and real ... be aware of this and please pass this note on, look how many 
times we all lock our doors with our keys...just to be sure we remembered to 
lock them....and bingo someone has our code...and whatever was in the 
car...and they are gone.
