640i GC alarm malfunction

I was driving my car the other day and while driving my car alarm went off. I was at the mall and all eyes were on me as if I was stealing the car (very embrassing). Has anyone else had the same issue with the alarm? The dealer couldn't find any faults so I'm just hoping it doesn't happen again.

Check battery

Check your battery. Erratic electrics and functions usually down to battery voltage being erratic, maybe not charging properly (presuming this is not a very low mileage car that has been standing long)

More likely this was some kind of proximity, pressure or EMF related event. A one off.
