    Dear FCA, Love my truck. Love my keyless entry. Hate my fob. The panic/alarm button is so easy to set off in your pocket with just the slightest pressure. Perhaps recessing the button a bit on the next model year? Thank you FCA, your loyal MOPAR fan.

    Do you wear skin tight leather pants? :roflsquared:

    I wear Wrangler jeans, so they aren't that loose, and the only time I accidentally hit buttons in the pocket is occasionally when I am working and have to throw my hip into something or use it for support (for extra leverage or extra push or whatever). It helps if you store nothing else in the same pocket as the keys.

    I hit my button in my pocket all the time. I have even hit auto start by mistake. It's annoying. I usually keep my keys out of my pocket when I am home.

    I did it while in the gym. A friend came in and told me my truck was going crazy in the parking lot.

    I've done it before. Thing is, I have a train horn wired up to the factory horn, so..it's crazy loud when the alarm goes off, lol.

    Just this morning it happened to me for the first time. I was squatted down doing something g and heard my truck honk and fire up in the garage. My other keys must have been laying just right in my pocket to hit the remote start. And no, I wasn't wearing tight leather pants! (I much prefer leather assless chaps.... )

    See, this is why I stopped wearing pants :naughty:

    But yeah, it's happened a few times. Mostly when I've been rolling around underneath with them in my pocket or coveralls. Half the time the damn thing won't work when I want it to!

    It happens to me all the time... It goes off in my pocket at least once a week... Its so annoying because its only the panic button that gets hit.
