Man, did I look stupid!

I went to PepBoys to get supplies for my first oil change on my WK2. I was carrying a box with all the oil and filter in it to the counter, when all of a sudden, the alarm goes off on my Jeep. I put the stuff on the counter and run outside thinking someone was hurting my baby! Nobody around, and I can't turn the alarm off! I hit the unlock button, the lock botton, open the door, start the engine with the push button, start the engine with the fob - NO DICE!! I close the door, lock the car, and go back inside with the alarm still blaring. I look at the guy who works there, and tell him with a stunned look on my face that I can't turn the alarm off. He asks me for my key, and says I had hit the panic button. He pushes the panic button and the alarm turns off! Obviously, the button was pressed by the box hitting my jacket. I just can't believe I couldn't turn it off any other way. Well, I learned something new, and thought I would pass it on so nobody else has to suffer my humiliation....

I'm a "get the shavings out" kind of guy. Maybe a waste, but for less than $40, I'm going to show my new engine some love. Will pass 800 miles this weekend.

Re: Man, did I look stupid!

That's why I open the key fob and shave off the rubber nib that triggers the panic button. I don't need it!

Good man, rdalcanto. You gotta admit it's funny! I'm picturing the MannyMoe&Jack guy asking you for the fob...priceless.

I know the affliction.

I just didn't think you had that many miles yet.

Re: Man, did I look stupid!

I did that with my old Super Duty one day. Worst part was I had the train horn turned on. Now that gets peoples attention!
