Hi all:
New to the forum... Picked up our 2011 Limited two weeks ago. I have several questions already, and have been searching the forum for answers. Great resource!

Here's one issue I've been having: unintentional door unlocks

This is due to the fact I've always preferred to carry my car keys in my pants pocket. And the buttons on the Flex Key are raised and easily pushed just by being in a pocket...hmmmph! More times than not, when I go out to the car, the doors are unlocked! I have yet to find the powered liftgate open, but probably because of the 2-push feature.

Sure, I could just carry my keys in a man-purse (lol)... but even that isn't fool-proof. We were driving our first road trip this past weekend when all of a sudden, the doors unlocked while on the highway. we locked them again, then the same thing happened. again and again. At the next rest stop, we disabled the autolock/unlock features, thinking that they may have been malfunctioning. But soon the doors started clicking violently over and over like they were possessed! Was on the phone with the nearest service department when my wife said, "Hey, I wonder if my key in my purse is the problem". Sure enough, her purse had fallen over on the 2nd row floor board and was pressing on the unlock button on her key. Oy.

Is there a way to reprogram the unlock feature on the keys... perhaps to require 2x pushing similar to the liftgate? If not, what does everybody else do? I'm not about to get a janitor-style key chain attached to my belt!
