Ever wonder what happens if the POWER / Start / Stop button gets pushed while driving with these new keyless cars? Well I tried it out on my 2017 Chevy Volt to find out in this video a large private parking lot. (DISCLAIMER: Please DO NOT do try this at home. I did this for my own entertainment . )
I wanted to see what happens if i accidentally bump in to the button I want to prepare myself on how to react. Secondly, I want to know if I start the car again while in motion. I looked at the Chevy Volt owners manual to reference afterward to check if Neutral can be used to restart the car.
With the 2017 Chevy Volt, pushing the power button while driving will alert the driver to confirm they want to turn off the car, by pushing the button for the second time. Testing this at a private parking lot, I tried it at under 5 mph and at 40 mph, you can turn off the car by using the Power button.
According to the Owners Manual, you can turn on the car at the “P” or “N” gear selection. In P you need to step on the brakes. In N you need to use the Power button twice and not hit the brakes. I feel that the hitting the power button twice is not really user friendly or intuitive unless you read the instructions.
Thanks for watching / reading. Starting to learn more about the 2017 Chevy Volt every day.
