Default someone is accessing my car by satellite? how is that?

I was driving by the ups store and when I got out of the car I heard a beep, but didn't think much of it. when I came back the seat was moved and the radio stations were changed. what could be put on my car for someone to be able to access my controls like that. I have a 2006 zo6. I also have a 2015 4/runner and when I walked up to the car someone unlocked it as I was walking up to it. how would someone be able to do this by satellite is the only way I can think of, but what kind of control module would they be using. or are the accessing it like a computer and just hacking the car without any module on it, because sometimes my home computer will just turn on by itself and start running and wake me up in the middle of the night. someone has a hard on for me and I am not amused...

Yup Obummer ordered the NSA to spy on you. They have drones flying above that can access your cars computer through OnStar. This was part of the deal they made in the bailout.

Your 4runner has computer modules from China, that the Chinese left backdoors that can be accessed by satelite communication.

Are you using a different key fob? The seat memory, radio controls, and side mirrors can be programmed to each key that automatically puts those settings when key is inside vehicle. It's his and hers feature.

If someone was trying to take over your car, they would do a bit more than change your radio settings!

And be sure to stop at the store on the way home and get milk, bread, and ammunition.
