Keyless entry - ignition On/Off question.

Post by Mikeyjd » Fri Sep 14, 2018 1:29 pm

OK, I'm new to this, so my question.

I have keyless entry/ignition. When I get into the car the jaguar logo lights up and the stop/start button lights up. What state of "ignition" is the car in?

What I am trying to say is: With my previous cars the key could be in several position i.e. Lock, Accessory, On, Start etc. It was possible to sit in the car with all power off. Can this be done with keyless?

I think it best described as "poised ready for action" at that stage.

If you press the start button without your foot on the brake you are in the accessories mode

Pressing brake and start you're off.

Also bear in mind that if you go into accessory mode it will turn itself off after a few minutes. Ditto if you turn the radio on which I find annoying as it doesn't stay on for long enough, especially when the boss if off shopping.
