Engine Shuts Off, but Power Mode Stays in ON or ACCESSORY

Currently Applies To: All models with one-push start

EDITOR’S NOTE: This article replaces the one issued in January 2012.

When you shift into Park and shut off the engine, does the power mode stay in ON or ACCESSORY?

The culprit could be a misadjusted shift cable. If it’s not adjusted right, it puts pressure on the shift lever, keeping the park pin switch from opening. The power control unit needs the park pin switch position input to switch the power mode to VEHICLE OFF (LOCK). To find and fix this problem, hook up the HDS, and go to the ONE-PUSH START/PCU Data List. Scroll down to AT SHIFT POSITION P and AT SHIFT POSITION P-PIN.
