Well, I am not sure this will work as the OP has push button start and I think part of the idea was to avoid setting off the alarm on return. I think the idea is simple as long as you do not mind not having the alarm on while away from the vehicle. The other issue with the push button start is the fact that to leave the FOB in the vehicle it must be disabled as there is a safety measure to prevent you from locking it in the car. I think a good fix would be to have an option to disable the beeps when using the button on the rear gate.

See my post just prior to this. You are correct in thinking that the FOB can not be locked in the vehicle. I think the response assumes the standard key with the security chip in the key.

If you want to leave the FOB in the car but leave the alarm off follow the steps in the original post.

If you want to leave the FOB in the car but have the alarm armed replace step 4

> 4. Use emergency key to lock driver's door. Car is locked but no alarm.

with

> 4. Use the lock controls on the door panel before closing the driver door. Car is locked and the alarm is armed.

then to enter you can use the emergency key which will set off the alarm or use the push button control on the rear lift gate.

I hope this helps.

I am a bit confused as I do not see this as cumbersome. The process takes just a few seconds and you are on your way. I personally do not have a need for this but the process is quick and easy. My concern would be leaving the key behind in an unattended car over the concern of using this procedure. Not trying to argue but just want to understand as I have considered doing this when traveling by air to avoid bringing the key FOB. My thoughts are to bring the emergency key plus have my phone to the use the remote unlock when I get back to my car.
