    so as some here know i picked up my Taco a little over a month ago and am still exploring the way it works.

    today, i noticed that the panic button on the factory keyless entry remote doesn't work. there are three buttons; lock...unlock...and a red one that i would imagine was the panic button. i got two sets of keys and remotes...and neither remote sets off the panic button when pressed. lock/unlock works like a charm, and on the center console the anti-theft deterrent light flashes when lock is engaged.

    shouldn't the panic button be functional? if so, the dealership should reset/program it, right?

    awesome...

    what's potentially more awesome is the fact that i have a link saved on my toolbar on my browser window that goes directly to a gif of him dropping the mic, and stepping off stage, and it just loops and loops and loops and...
