My first car with a stop/ start button and yet I have a question about what happens when you leave the car? Specifically, I have repeatedly found that "x" number of minutes after I have gone to work or gone into the house, I am second-guessing whether I actually pressed the stop/ start button to turn off the car. I am so used to taking a key out of the ignition that I really need to get ingrained the habit of "knowing" that I turned off the car with the stop/ start button. Anyone else have this issue? I wonder what happens if I don't press the button, leave the car for the night and then...10-12 hours later go back to the car? I have no idea if the car has an "auto-off" feature...after "x" number of minutes, the electric turns off automatically without driver input?

If you select Home > Setting > Vehicle > Door Settings, you can change the how the car locks and unlocks... I changed the settings there because I wanted the doors to automatically lock when I walked away and be able to hear it beep and flash.

Here’s some info from the owners manual..

Warning buzzers may sound from inside and/or outside the vehicle to remind you that the 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 remote is taken out of the vehicle, and all doors are closed, a warning buzzer sounds from both inside and outside the vehicle. A warning message on the driver information interface notifies the driver inside that the remote is outside of the vehicle.■

When the power mode is in ACCESSORY
If the remote is taken out of the vehicle, and all the doors are closed, a warning buzzer sounds from outside the vehicle.

Goldy, thanks for the info. I read the owners manual online and did NOT see the info that you posted from the owners manual. Yours must be in the printed owners manual - which apparently is different than the online PDF one that I have been reviewing.



That one sentence you posted makes very little sense: "If the buzzer continues even after the remote is put back inside, place it to be within its operational range." What does that mean? Where does one place the remote if not inside? It's operational range? I guess that means the remote must be physically outside the car but within three feet of the panels?

To clarify and answer your main question, the car wont turn off if you leave it on with out any user input, however if the car is on and it detects the car key leaving the vehicle, the car will beep loudly multiple times to remind you that you are leaving the car on.

And from experience I can tell you the trunk won’t close with a key in it. I couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t get it closed and my wife remembered her key was in a bag she had just put in the trunk.

I once pulled in the driveway and got distracted to the point I didn't know the car was on when I got out (because it's silent). It's a good thing to know (now) that the car will put itself in park automatically when you open the door (and step out). It screamed at me (beeps) when I walked away with the keyfob to let me know. It will also put itself in park if you hit the stop button without selecting park first. Honda thought of everything - they even have the fan blower lower itself so the voice recognition can hear you better!
