Panic alarm

Anyone have any idea on how to disable the panic alarm on the AU's? ie the red button on the keyring. I don't know how many times I have set it off in the dark.

Re: Panic alarm

Well you could open up the key fob and remove the red button and replace it with someting deeper of the same circumferance (ie fits over the microswitch underneath but is too tall to move).

Re: Panic alarm

I would have thought that setting it off in the dark would help you find your car.

What you could do id open up the fob as Aussie blue suggested, and scrape off the circuit on one side going from the red button - kind of a permanent 'fix' though.

Re: Panic alarm

At your next service ask the service guys to disable the function. It's an option in the car's computer on AU and BA
