Anyone else noticed this with the S/S button.......

I found it is impossible to switch off the engine when the wheels are still turning on the car, ie at 70mph or 1 mph when in gear or out of gear.

The system must be connected into the ABS somewhere making it impossible to switch off whilst moving, probably a safety feature for drivers that don't know you will lose your power brakes and steering if you could switch the engine off whilst moving.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
