I drove home from work today like normal. Pushed the engine start/stop button before getting out of the car. The radio was still on, and the dash was still on, with Accessory Mode, push "start/stop" twice to turn off, or something similar to that.
I pushed the button twice. It went to accessory mode.
I started the engine, drove the car out of the drive way, came back, pushed the button to turn off the car... accessory mode.
turned the car on, turned the car off.... accessory mode.
Moved the keys all away from the car. Started the car (which i could do because it WAS STILL IN ACCESSORY MODE) and drove the car, meanwhile there was a big warning saying there was no key fob in the proximity. Parked the car, pushed the on/off button.... accessory mode.
I have tried everything I can think of, the car wont lock. It wont exit accessory mode unless its in full on start. Someone could come along and steal my car because I cant turn it off.
Any ideas? I phoned roadside assistance, they had no suggestions except to call the dealership in the morning.

It happened to me once, the culprit was my phone sitting in front of the shifter, would not allow the car to go fully all the way into park. Once I moved the phone it went fully into park and I could turn the car off.
