Panic Button on Key Fob

Has anyone else noticed that the "Panic" button on the key fob is very sensitive. I am pretty sure my neighbors hate me for the numerous times I have bumped it putting my keys in pocket at 5:30am.

I followed this mostly, but instead of removing it completely, I just clipped down the little nub, maybe by half, to make it still usable but harder to press.

It's a pain in the ass, but I don't mind it too much.

Its annoying. I was thinking the same thing the other day. I've only had my car for < a month and I've managed to set off the panic button 4x already. This is probably more than all my other 10 cars I've owned combined.

It's a PIA all right. So is the ASS. It should be shut off in the sporty modes, both of them.

That panic button is probably the biggest complaint I have with my Alfa. Should be set to go off only if pushed times 2 or I should have the ability to turn it of as an option.

Put it in your left pocket instead of right, most/all of your inadvertent bumps will go away

It is a 2 minute fix. Instead of complaining here, pop it open trim it and snap it together. REAL EASY!!

Just completed after the panic alarm went off again.
Battery out, peeled up the panic button, removed the green nub with flathead, and push it all back together again.
Job done.
