I read on another DIY that someone used a pen cap glued to a base of stacked credit card pieces. I decided to give this a try. HUGE difference! The flat bottom of the credit card pieces presses evenly on the top of the two contacts, as it should. So you get that punch-in-bounce-back feedback that all the other buttons in your car have.

Maybe someone could try gluing a piece of credit card to the bottom of the lego pieces to get the same effect.
If someone happens upon this thread knowing nothing about these cars their going to be horrified or be LTAO....... Were gluing pen caps, chunks of plastic and legos to our cars in an attempt to modify it, to funny! I guess I was lucky that mine came with the required parts.
