Do not press the ENGINE START/STOP button while  
driving unless it is absolutely necessary for the engine  
to be turned off.  
If you press the ENGINE START/STOP button while  
driving, the beeper sounds.  
The steering wheel will not lock. However, because turning off the engine disables  
the power assist the engine provides to the steering and braking systems, it will  
require significantly more physical effort and time to steer and slow the vehicle. Use  
both feet on the brake pedal to slow down the vehicle and stop immediately in a  
safe place.  
The power mode is in ACCESSORY when the engine is stopped.  
To change the mode to VEHICLE OFF, put the transmission into (P after the vehicle  
comes to a complete stop.
