Horn honks and lights flash while engine is running

So like the title says. My wife got out at the ATM, I was in the Jeep. The jeep was running, I was the driver. When she got back in the horn sounded once, the emergency lights flashed once and that was it. The fake key was in the ignition. Any thoughts?

Isn't that what happens when you press the 'Lock' button on the Key FOB? Could that have happened accidentally?

At least that is what happens for me as I have the settings set for that... One horn beep and emergency lights flash once.

Edit> Although I never tried it while it was running.
SkipW and Array like this.

Now that could be, her key fob might have got bumped in her purse. I'll have to see if it works while the engine is running.
