My son's 95 civic started on its own randomly in early morning and then stopped on its own about 10 minutes later. Kinda Freaked us out! Anyone heard of this? BTW... No one has worked or was working on it lately and we have owned this car for about 6 years and have never experienced anything like this!

Probably "cross talking" another transmitter The frequencies are so overloaded that someone close by started your car

Sorry to be so flippant but for a car to start on it's own requires a precise procedure of the starter and the engine... If the starter is engaged the amount of time is very short ... otherwise you get that grinding sound (like when you accidentally turn the key after the car is running... so for a car to start, then run for 10 minutes (usually the default time from a remote ,,that a car will run if no-one drives it

I don't think it is possible without a remote starter set up. Maybe some one has a key and is messing with you.

Thanks for answers... if someone before us put a remote starter in it and then took it off before selling, could there be still some leftover wiring or something that may have cross transmitted with another person trying to start Their car in the area? How can I tell if there was a starter kit on it before us?

It should be on the remote /// I think you have to hit 2 things at the same time Like lock and alarm or something like that

This car is so old it doesn't have a remote.

I would remove the ignition from the steering column and inspect the wiring. Also check the connections for battery terminals and starter. Even though I haven't seen or heard a case where a car started on its own I guess anything is possible.
