    At first, I thought my FR keyfob was pretty cool but, the longer I have it, the more I hate it. Specifically, I hate how easy it is to set off the emergency alarm (horn). Seems like the other keys on my keychain often press against the fob set it off. Happens just about every week and sometimes multiple times per week.

    First of all, I'd like to ask if any of you ever had an emergency and you used that button to help you in some way? I'll bet 1 in 100 or maybe none. When I'm working in my garage and I lean against something that presses one key against the emergency button on my FR fob, it scares the crap out of me if I'm closed up in the garage with the truck. If it's sitting in the driveway, then the whole neighborhood's probably saying, "yeah, sounds like ol' John's Raptor is scared again." That feature should have an opt out setting on the dash somewhere so that it can't be activated or, better yet, remove it from the fob completely.

    So remove the other keys.

    I have a 17 which is a different key fob than the 18s, but never set off the alarm.

    I don't mind mine yet. The only thing I hate is when I leave the truck running and keep my keys in my pocket and run into the house for something and it honks. I need to get into tweaking everything with FORSCAN.

    If I didn't need the other keys, they wouldn't be on my keychain.

    I have had mine go off several times. Like you, just leaning against something sets it off. Neighbors already hate me so no big deal :)
