How does push start work?
I was at the dealer and bought an 07 v8 sport trac. My salesman said the paperwork would take a few minutes so he tossed me the keys to a Taurus SHO and said have fun. (sweeeeet!)
Afterwards, it got me thinking about the Toyota accelerator problem.
My question- when you are driving, if you hit the start button does the engine turn off? It seems like either option is bad. If a kid hit the button while you were driving it could be dangerous. On the flip side, if the accelerator got stuck and you hit the button and it didn;t turn off, it would be dangerous. So which is it? There is no key. At least with the taurus sho. You have a key fob. If the key fob is in your pocket you just put the feet on the brakes and hit the button to start.
Does it take two inputs to turn it off while driving? Like have the brake pedal down when you touch the button? Even that could cause an accidental shut down.
I'm confused. Anyone have an answer?
