Default How to disable the stupid panic button?

On the key fob, how can I disable the panic button? When I search online, all I see it suggestions to put glue or something in it. Is there really no way to just disable it? I never ever want to use it, but I accidentally hit it sometimes and it sucks.

Unfortunately, I am unaware of any actual way to disable it. Physically blocking the button off may be the only way, but I think someone who specializes in electronics may be able to help.

Open the remote and put a small piece of tape on the contact pad under the button.
