Honda Accord: ENGINE START/STOP Button
• Changing the Power Mode
ENGINE START/STOP Button Operating Range
You can start the engine when the smart entry remote is inside the vehicle.
The engine may also run if the smart entry remote is close to the door or window, even if it is outside the vehicle.
Indicator in the button is off, if the engine is running.
If the smart entry remote battery is weak, beeper sounds and the To Start, Hold Remote Near Start Button message appears on the multi-information display*.
Do not leave the power mode in ACCESSORY or ON when you get out.
• Automatic Power Off
If you leave the vehicle for 30 to 60 minutes with the shift lever in and the power mode in ACCESSORY, the vehicle automatically goes into the mode similar to VEHICLE OFF (LOCK) to avoid the battery drain.
When in this mode:
The steering wheel does not lock.
You cannot lock or unlock doors with the remote transmitter or the smart entry system.
Press the ENGINE START/STOP button to switch the mode to VEHICLE OFF (LOCK).
• Power Mode Reminder
If you open the driver’s door when the power mode is set to ACCESSORY, a warning buzzer sounds.
• Smart Entry Remote Reminder
Warning buzzers may sound from inside or/ and outside the vehicle to remind you that the smart entry remote is out of the vehicle. If the buzzer continues even after the remote is put back inside, place it to be within its operational range.
• When the power mode is in ON
If the smart entry remote is taken out of the vehicle, and the driver’s door is closed, warning buzzers sound from both inside and outside the vehicle. A warning message on the information display or multi-information display notifies the driver inside that the remote is out.
• When the power mode is in ACCESSORY
If the smart entry remote is taken out of the vehicle, and all the doors are closed, a warning buzzer sounds from outside the vehicle.
When the smart entry remote is within the system’s operational range, and the driver’s door is closed, the warning function cancels.
If the smart entry remote is taken out of the vehicle after the engine has been started, you can no longer change the ENGINE START/STOP button mode or restart the engine. Always make sure if the remote is in your vehicle when you operate the ENGINE START/STOP button.
Removing the smart entry remote from the vehicle through a window does not activate the warning buzzer.
Do not put the smart entry remote on the dashboard or in the glove box. It may cause the warning buzzer to go off. Under some other conditions that can prevent the vehicle from locating the remote, the warning buzzer may also go off even if the remote is within the system’s operational range.
