operation question

ok, in the bygone era of keys you could turn the key backwards for accesories, or forward without starting to power the electrical system.

this would allow you to listen to the radio, check the lights, use the windows, ect.


how can this be done with a keyless fob?

Don’t put your foot on the brake and just press the start button. 😉

do you need to do it a second time to turn it off?

The only thing I don't really like with this way is that the headlights, A/C, and everything else you had running comes on too, not just the radio. As for the A/C, it just blows air, not chilled though. Just the fan

You can have the radio turn on by just pressing the power button on the radio...at least that's what I do.
