I do not know your location, but I had a similar experience recently:
Couldn't open my car (was on a building site with my private car, don't sue me, all company cars were occupied), was astonished as I had just
exchanged the old battery in the beeper a couple of weeks earlier for a fresh one.
Was getting frustrated and ready to endure the alarm-honking of my car if I open it with the manual key after shutting it via remote.
Looked around, saw a crane operator with his remote standing close (about 15-20m distance) and smirking.
His remote to control the crane was far, far more powerful than my tiny remote-beeper, and it seemed to utilize the same range of frequencies, so he
could *squelch* my signals easily.
He took pity on me and stopped playing around, I think he even had to shut his remote down entirely via main switch. But I could open my car in peace
with the remote.
tl;dr: your remote-thing is a very very tiny transmitter and has to shut up if there is a real big bad guy in the vicinity.
