If you have ever, like me one time to often, had your horn start honking because you accidentally pressed the panic button on your keyless remote control, here's what worked for me a few minutes ago.

I hacksawed off the tip of the cap of a regular Sharpie permanent marker, the ones with a rounded cap, right at the point where the molded in clip joins the cap. These Sharpies are available everywhere. That leaves an 1/8" high section which goes over the panic contact on the circuit board (after you take apart the sections of the keyless remote) and because that section of cap is solid at the top, the rubber panic button can’t press against the panic contact on the circuit board.

This was on a keyless remote for a Lincoln Town Car, which like many others, has a rubber button that presses against the panic contacts on the circuit board, so you can’t disable it with a piece of tape (the rubber button will just press the tape onto the contacts and activate the alarm).
