Engine running --> Accessory Mode for 6spd manual

2331 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Fired00d
Wondering if anyone knows how to go straight to accessory mode from the engine running for manual trannys? I have seen automatic users instructed to push the Engine Start/Stop button when NOT in Park. This will turn the engine off but leave all your accessories running. I can't figure out how to do this with my 6spd. Any ideas?

Found the following w/a Google search - How to Use Push Button Start in Honda Vehicles with a reply regarding manual transmissions....

"Thanks for an informative article.

Yet this only covers about 97 or 98 percent of modern Honda autos.

What about the folks who bought a manual-transmission Honda and keyless start? Your article is useless to those folks.

I’ll get you started:
Press the clutch down. Way down. To the floor down. Much farther than you would press for a driving gear shift.
It wouldn’t hurt to hold the brake pedal down too, but this hasn’t always been mandatory.
If you are lucky enough to live in a state where the sun shines brightly all the time, press the button while holding that clutch pedal down.
If you are unlucky, and you live in a state which has a winter, you’ll find about 4 to 15 percent success rate on your button press.
To “cycle back” to where you want to be, you’ll need to press the button twice more.
Once to move the vehicle into accessory mode.
Once to shut the vehicle down.
And then you are permitted to try again. Good luck! And keep that clutch pedal DOWN !!"

These instructions appear to be the sequence to get manual transmission in accessory mode when not running, but it may be worth a try to push the clutch pedal to the floor as they are describing when car is running and hit the engine start/stop button to see if it'll work.

Good luck, and let us know if this works or you find out how it can be done.
