First time, rear hatch just opened.

Second time- between 12M and 6AM, all 4 doors locked and rear hatch open...

Luckily car was pulled forward enough that rear tailgate did NOT hit the garage door!

Anyone find a explanation OTHER than accidental activation via fob?
If the car is unlocked, may be related to a condensation issue in the tailgate finger switch. Would be interesting to see how often it happens with a locked car and fob outside of range.
