Key/Remote buttons too sensitive ?

Recommended Posts

Do you find the key (remote) too sensitive ? The panic button gets pressed all the time when I leave the remote in my pockets. My previous car remote had the key sunked in, and you really had to press deep with a thumb nail to activate panic mode.

 

Really this is a first-world problem... but when I do work around the house it's annoying !

I have set it off a few times along with having the hatch lift. But I usually don't keep it in my pant's pocket. I'll keep it in my coat/sweater pocket or leave it near the door.

I've set off the horn in my garage several times with the fob in my pocket, even once in a parking lot just getting into my Edge. As soon as I sat down in the seat, the horn started honking! I assume the other keys on my ring get "tangled" around the fob while in my pocket, causing the button to be pushed.

 

I had a 2013 F-150 before this Edge, and I think I have already set off the horn more times in the 4 months I have had the Edge, than the 2-1/2 years I had the F-150.

I have had the rear gate lifted a few times when I return to the car. Took awhile to figure out it was the remote in my pocket. Haven't set off the horn, yet.

I decided that before my neighbors lynched me constantly setting off the emergency button while bending over or working in the house and garage to go inside the remote and cut the small silicone rubber nipple tip shorter and have had no more problems.

This happens to me all the time.  It is very annoying, probably more so to my neighbors than me though.  If anyone has a solution that they know works for sure, I'd like to know.

FORScan (as usual): 

Panic Alarm
BCM 726-37-01 xxxx xxx0 xxxx Panic alarm on fob disabled
BCM 726-37-01 xxxx xxx1 xxxx Panic alarm on fob requires 2 presses
BCM 726-37-01 xxxx xxx2 xxxx Panic alarm on fob enabled

Forscan.org and you need a OBDII connector to a PC. I use an ELM327-compatible USB connector.

The things one can do with FORScan will never cease to amaze me!  Thats a good find! I'm sure some will find it useful!
