Key fob hack

I love my new car but HATE the panic button on the key fob - every time I was bending over the keys were hitting the panic button and starting the car beeping. Annoying as hell, both to me and the neighbors. Today I finally had enough and hacked it - I still want to be able to use the feature if absolutely necessary so didn't want to dig around inside the fob and remove the button, so next best option: cover it up. I used a small piece of really hard plastic from a SD card sleeve and a bit of black electric tape to keep the look and feel of the rest of the fob. You could probably also use an old expired credit card for the plastic piece too. Let's see how it works
