Do you know what happens if you push the "Start Stop" button whilst doing 70. I Do!!!

Now befor you all say "why did you do that", the simple answer is that on my S2000 i can push the button at speed and NOTHING happens, i guess there is some safety gadget installed.

So... i was driving along yesterday on a dual carrage way with my friend when we started discussing the button in question.

He said what would happen and i said "nothing", "Look"!!! I pushed it once and nothing happened so i pushed it about 4 more times just to emphasise my point when the engine stopped at 70 mph!

The dash was indicating that i had to put the car into "P" but this was the last thing to do at this speed and of course i cant start it without pushing the break.

My mate said "have you got breaks" at this point i had and i pushed them a couple of times just to check. They then stopped working and so did the power steering, Fortunately we were coming up on an exit so i put the hazzards on and rolled to a stop about 100ft onto the exit where i could stop the car and re-start.

What a Tw*t.

I wont do that again.

Hahahaha, quality. Reminds me of when that space shuttle blew up, someone in the cockpit must have said "I wonder what this button does?"

It is crazy that it does not have a failsafe to prevent that. Surely it is not difficult for the ECU to check road speed before enabling an engine shutdown?

The only situation I can see where you might want to do that is if there was a sudden loss in oil pressure and you wanted to try to save the engine (but it's nearly always too late by the time you've been warned about low oil pressure).

Surely it's better to lose an engine very rarely than to allow an otherwise perfectly functional car to crash due to loss of power steering and brakes?

I would tell your HPC who should inform Nissan asap.

That would easily be fixed with an ECU tweak.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you take the wall with you.

I know it isn't a GTR but i tried the exact same thing on my bro's new focus RS. 1 press nothing happens repeatedly pressing the start button did exactly the same as above. Luckily the RS is a manual so just dipped the clutch and restarted. But thought it was odd that it stops the engine while moving. Imagine a passenger/child doing it to you while driving around a bend.

My little boy did the same thing just after I got it - we were doing about 30 in a 30 but as you say everything stopped working - they should change the button to say "Start/Turn Off Every Damn Thing"

I agree, it could be a serious problem.

Do you have warning notices on every plug socket in your home that say 'WARNING!! DO NOT PUT FINGERS IN PLUG SOCKETS AS ELECTRICITY CAN KILL!!' How does Nissan protect itself from stupid customers? Your kids can turn your ignition off in other cars by the key, wasn't a problem then. A little common sense is required. It's only a problem when owners get all hysterical and whip up a frenzy.

Your kids must have really long arms if they can reach an ignition key whilst you're driving!

The Start/Stop button is prominent on the centre console.
I say again, I can't understand why it would even be enabled whilst the car is moving?

No they don't, but my plug sockets are not placed directly under my elbow on my sofa where i sit. they are also NOT in areas where i don't spend too much time at speeds upto 190 mph! i.e low level on the floor.

Thanks for the stupid customer quote, i am in fact not stupid, unlike your quote about your child reaching around you whilst driving and turning your ignition off! that my learned friend would be stupid (in your terms) to allow such a idiotic act.
