Residents of a small village in England have been experiencing a spate of unexplained phenomena.

Quote

The strange series of events began when locals discovered that their car doors would spontaneously lock and unlock for no discernible reason. Sometimes the phenomenon would result in someone being trapped inside their vehicle while at other times they would be unable to get in.

More like a Cornish Twilighht Zone than Bermuda Triangle, don't you think?

Odds are these are all vehicles that you can unlock with your beeping key chain and there is some radio source in the area causing it.

I agree with OverSword, something is interfering with the radio signal the locking mechanisms work on, or it could be one of these cheap hacking tools you can get that lets unscrupulous people to gain access with a Smartphone App on their phones, but using it as a prank more than maliciously.

That is strange.  And to make it even stranger, the steering wheel moves to the wrong side of the car as in that photo!  How weird is that?

SaraT beat me to it!  I had to register first. But, come, come...there must be some paranormal factor at work.  The explanation cannot be so mundane.

Easily explained.

Could be a phone mast or radio signals.

Been to a lot of chrysler voyagers where they won't start, usually at petrol station forecourts(phone masts are usually hidden in the large signs), take the car half a mile down the road and its fine.

I cant understand how you can't get in the cars, they have a manual door lock which will open, too many people rely solely on the little buttons.

If what I type offends you, don't see it as an attack, but as my opinion.

Ancient aliens... or the radio signals is a good guess too!

Well our tiny island of Britain being as it is, means we are never far away from a Mobile Phone mast or some other technological installation point or other. So I am definitely in the camp of interference from something nearby. :yes:

Or someone has a key-fob scanner and is sat wetting themselves with laughter on some high vantage point with a pair of binoculars as he plays with peoples car doors lol.....yeah joking I know lol.

Even though this isn't that exciting, it's one of the better Unexplained Mysteries that has been posted on a site with the same name. Just sayin.

I don't think it is supernatural.

I don't live there but experience similar problems when I park under a power line/telegraph pole outside my work.  I try to avoid the space where possible as I either struggle to lock or unlock the car.  Happens to both my vehicles which have entirely different locking systems.  It is just poor insulation on wiring I believe that interferes with the key fobs.

Key fobs tend to operate on either 315 or 433 Mhz. So, what impacts one vehicle is likely to impact another. Causes of RF interference might be quite unexpected; in one instance it was found to be a DJ's light control panel using the same frequency as the key fobs.
