Default Does the Hatch Button on the Fob Work?

Hello All,

So I cracked open my key fob to transplant the guts into a nice new shell and saw that while the shell has 2 buttons, the PCB actually has 3. The third button appears to be used on other models for opening the hatch. Does this button do anything on the G1 Insight?

you can have it on an aftermarket keyless, but you have to run a wire to the back.

I tried pressing the extra button with the fob open and the LED doesn't respond to that button.

Can you be more specific to achieving this option.

Yes, there's an actuator for the rear that's triggered by the button on the hatch (blue I believe). Using an available channel on an aftermarket keyless/alarm plus a relay gives you this functionality.
