So I have a intelligent key pushbutton and as much as I love it I miss the ability to turn the key just enough to put the car in accessory mode to have my stereo on without having the vehicle on.

Does anyone know if it is possible to have accessory mode on with the intelligent key?

I know sometime it kills you right? Trying to figure something out looking at the book and not finding the answer only to find out how simple it was.

This was kinda like finding out how to remove the side turn signals, it was easy but hard too.

Does anyone know if there is a way to cut the engine and go into accessory mode? I'm always on the phone, so when I park I want to cut the engine, but remain talking on the bluetooth.

Double tap the Engine button really quick and you will turn off the car and the accessories power remains on. It's tricky & needs a little bit practice.

I was driving thru the parking lot at work doing about 5mph and I went to turn on the radio and instead hit the start button and the engine turned off wile everything else remained on. I did not think that possible wile moving but I sure did kill the engine wile moving.

I got flustered and did not have the car in park so the engine would not star again until I realized I needed to move the shifter to park. Duh.

That actually was a good question, with an actual key it will engage the starter solenoid and the metal shaving will start to build up!

We have had several question and answer session on the forum about the Intelli key system and it has always been thought of by the designers.

The last question I want answered if there is an issue with the engine does the stater keep trying to start the car or does it quit like it does now in about one second. If it does keep turning over, for how long. I imagine this will get answered soon.
