So I have a '05 Indigo Ink Pearl Scion tC and I obviously it has the keyless entry... My question is why is there a panic button like it has an alarm system when it does not have an alarm system? When I bought the car for some reason I thought it had one because I assumed it did with the panic button (looks like a red horn on the key) but then I realized it didnt, but as we all know dont assume because if you assume it makes an ass out of u and me... Anyways, why is it there? Whats the purpose? J/w thanks

The panic button is there for a number of reasons. Two examples are:

- Maybe you can't remember exactly where you parked in a sea of cars (mall, amusement park), or...

- Maybe you see someone getting too close to your car and you want to startle them away.

I LOVE using my panic button to startle people. It's quite funny.
I do use it to find my car when I go to the mall.

The panic button is great. The cat up the street likes to take a stroll across eveyone's car on the block. I was looking out the window and he was getting ready for the big leap on the hood. Pressing the panic button made him run off to find a quieter spot. If you think a bit....there will be plenty of uses for that little button.

Oh man I had so much fun with the panic button when I first got the tC. Everytime a family or friend checks out my car and as soon as they put their hands on the door handle to open the car, press the panic button as they would think they set off the alarm!

Geneo, I have the exact same cat problems in my neighborhood and you could see the inner cloth lining underside of the hood you could see cat hair all over it. As with walking across the hood I wouldnt dare to hit the panic button cuz if the cats would bolt right off the hood leaving scratches. Its a good idea though

GOOD FOR LAUGHS!!!


I used it on my Escort at my last job. A guy I worked with had just pulled into the parking lot after lunch, I saw him pull in so I waited. When he got out of his car and hit his keyless to lock his doors I hit my panic button so the alarm would go off. He then hit his button again and I turned the alarm off, he looked bewildered and hit his botton again so I turned the alarm on again, he hit it one more time and I turned it off. He came inside and told me I wouldn't believe it but his keyless would set my alarm off, then I let him in on the little gag, it was quite funny.
