Get the panic button to do something else.

Is there some way that I could use the panic button on the key fob for something else?

It would be pretty sweet to use it for switching aux lighting.

Any chance that this could be done or is all that wrapped up in the computer.

x11 billion. That's the best feature on my dad's old maxima. Have the windows completely rolled down while walking to the car on a hot summer day, makes it so much nicer when getting in the car.

I'm guessing it wouldn't simply be reprogram the key fob. You'd probably need to re-program whatever recieves the signals from the keyfob... I'm guessing the computer and who knows how hard that is.
