I did have it once or twice unlock as I approached for no reason. But it hasn`t happened for quite a while now.
I've had the lock/unlock thing happen while washing it, too. My solution is to take my key fob out of my pocket when I'm washing it. I keep it in a lock box in my garage anyway when I'm not using it so I can have easy, but secured access to both vehicle keys without going up into the house.
It stays dry there, too, in case of an unfortunate ricochet of water when hosing it down.
As far as it doing that just when approaching, it's possible you have a bad proximity sensor in one of the front door handles.
Having said that, I would love it if the vehicle unlocked when I got close and automatically locked when I left the Fob range (or had an option to set it to do that).
Also, for the life of me, I don't understand why the system doesn't let you press the outside lock button to lock it when the fob isn't present. I don't get the conflict there. If the fob is out of range, there's no reason not to allow it to lock that way. It's not like it doesn't take some effort to actually lock the fob in the car.
It's annoying to not be able to use the easiest method to lock the vehicle without having the fob with me.
