    Any way to kill the panic button on the key fob?

    My big fingers keep setting it off..

    Thought I'd ask here first before I read that encyclopedia owner manual.

    Thanks

    Open the fob and put a small piece of tape between the button and the contact of the board. FREE!

    But if you get raped in an alley, you'll have no hope if you do that! Cuz you know usually everyone comes running when they hear a car horn going off.


    Oh wait this isn't the 70's. Yeah do it

    I'd keep the panic button.

    many have suggested folks keep their key-fob bedside...say someone is breaking into your home at night...hit the panic button and most thieves or violent criminals will run at the sound.

    also, it's a great tool to have handy when walking to your car in a parking lot or parking garage...some azzhat decides to approach to car jack or mug...the panic button and subsequent alarm could be a deterrent, especially for women.

    think about it. :cheers:

    Oh, I think that they will come running. 8 rounds of .45-ACP calls to the soul.

    Alarms are nowadays are ignored more than anything. The thought is now "Is it mine?, No .. Sucks to be them.", and you go on about your day.
