This one is weird.  DW went to leave recently and upon opening the door to the garage we saw that the interior and parking lights were on as if a door wasn't fully closed.  As she walked past the car to get in she happened to touch the headlight and all the lights went out!  The car started just fine and all has been normal since.  I didn't think to check the 12V battery voltage but the lights appeared normal brightness.  No idea how long the lights had been on or why.  (Was it too spooky in the dark so the car turned on some night lights?)  Or why touching the headlight made them go out - coincidence just seems too remote.  Perhaps static?

Has anyone else had anything like this happen?

could be the touch sensor on the doors or something. I've noticed the doors locks sometimes when I'm washing the car and hit the door handle sensor with water while holding the nozzle with my key in my pocket.

That's interesting - but I have a lowly SE with no key-less entry, door sensors, etc...at least I didn't think so!

I butt-locked my SEL while squeezing past in the garage.

Sounds like someone accidentally hit the unlock button on the fob, then happened to time the touch with the timeout of the car's lighting system. Or it's possessed.
