Recently changed top cylinder and they also worked on electric things that had to do with ignition to correct that fact that radio keep on when car is off.
Nothing on compressor, fan and thermostat to my knowledge

OK...first off, what is most likely happening is that your cooling fan (i.e. radiator fan) is intermittently starting, running for a while and then shutting down. This is abnormal but can happen even when your ignition/engine is switched off, due to some specific faults.

Get a VERY GOOD Auto-Electrician to check and possibly replace the following components for you:
1. The cooling fan relay (usually located in the engine compartment).
2. The cooling fan control module (usually located behind the glove box).
3. The thermostat.

A fault in any of these components can result in your cooling fan spontaneously and intermittently running for a while, even with the ignition and engine switched off.

Cheers!

I have owned a car with flood damage(salt water damage)the car can start on its own(very rare),the common faults are ac fan will on in the car at night, windows can roll down on its own,you can on the AC and the headlights will switch on,you can switch on the navigation and the wipers will start working, you can press horn and the AC will switch on,the horn can even blow steady on its own,crazy motor car apart from mad electrical gizmos but reliable mechanical ly,it's an Acura..

Most likely your fan relay is the culprit. You may have to change it

The key is no where nearby, nobody pressed any button. The car engine just started. I notice earlier that if I remove the key, the radio keeps working

Very funny

True! Reminds me of old boy's jetta executive back in the day...
Fan was automatic..would just come on it's own when the weather was really hot.
