Lights flash as I walk past?

Hi all,

firstly I'll appologise if this has been answered elsewhere, not sure what to type in the search box for this issue??
Sometimes when I walk past my car, (keys are in my pocket and no buttons being pressed) the indicator lights flash once for no apparent reason? Doors remain locked. The alarm is just the stock one so no perimeter sensors etc.
It's very odd, I'm thinking maybe the batteries in the fob are getting low perhaps and this is the way it informs you? any info would be greatfully received.
Thanks peeps

When you had this problem did you hear the locks operate. As I have noticed that sometimes the movement as you walk can cause the fob buttons to operate.

Hi, no water been spilt on it (dropped my other set in the toilet though, grrrr!)
I thought that as well, maybe I was pressing it by accident but when it does it there is no sound from the door locks, lights flash once and nothing else, doors remain locked. The only way to reproduce it is to press the unlock button, that kind of flash. It's rather odd. I've got a Honda technician coming to the house on Saturday to fit a fuel filter for me so will ask him and let you know if it's something he's seen before.
Cheers guys

That's your car greeting you and showing you that you have been missed while you were away
