The starter will crank as long as you hold the button just like a key would.
It operates like this:
short button presses cycle through the key positions:
OFF > ACC > ON > OFF
From any of those positions, a long press will START and when you release it goes to ON. A momentary button push kills the engine and it goes to ACC. That way when you kill the engine your radio does not cut-out. At that point you are back in the OFF>ACC>ON cycle and a long press will re-start.
If it does not start when you crank it, then when you release the button it goes back to ON. At that point, you have to cycle it to OFF or ACC before you can restart. This was necessary to prevent you from being able to crank the engine if its already running.
I took a video last summer. I'll Youtube it and post a link.
So in the off position you can just press and hold for the 1.2 and it will start bypassing the ACC? That is a very cool feature!!!
The double start engagement prevention is a great feature too. It shows you put some real thought into the programming.
I'm really liking this upgrade now.
