Re: Man, did I look stupid!

I have managed to hit every button on my fob and activate every feature, even the power lift gate while in my pocket. They really should have recessed the buttons more.

I have to make it a point when I get home to take it out of my pocket so I don't open the lift gate with the garage closed.

Re: Man, did I look stupid!

I'm no fan of the panic button for that reason. It's WAY too easy to hit on any remote I've ever had. I understand why they don't want to get rid of it (but if there's ever been an instance where it's saved somebody's bacon, I'd love to hear it), but methinks it should be the kind of thing where you need to hold it down for 2-5 seconds before it activates.

Thanks. I did this last night to both my FOB. I actually just grabbed the little nub and used a nail clipper to clip it off, presto gone-o. This is not an absolute fix, but appears it will now take a lot more to accidentally activate panic?

Re: Man, did I look stupid!

A couple years ago I left an auto part store with oil/filter package as this story. I wasn't paying complete attention, but walked up to my metallic grey GC and climbed in, put the package on the passenger seat...and realized...THIS IS NOT MY JEEP!!!...Quick grab package and get out of jeep. My GC was two cars over. The whole time I'm thinking someone is going to think I'm stealing a package out of this guys jeep.

Re: Man, did I look stupid!

It has happened to me once in the first time about 8 years ago, but fortunately nobody was around. lol I then learned something else... just click on the panic button!

Yesterday I replaced the battery for my 1996 JGC Limited and it beeped and beeped right away when it connected. Had no fab key with me (but its battery ran out, anyway) so I just opened and closed the driver door that stopped it.
