I noticed a post somewhere in this forum where a person said (I believe a Volvo owner), "I turn the key to the on postion then back to the off position and the wheel remains unlocked without the accesories powered up" (Not an exact quote)
So I thought what if my Escape could do that???
I tried the following experiment.
I turned the key to the first position.
This unlocked the steering wheel and lit up things like the radio.
Then I turned the key back to "OFF" WITHOUT REMOVING THE KEY.
The steering wheel appears to remain unlocked until you remove the key. I coasted down the driveway and could turn the wheel much further than is required to lock the wheel after the key is removed.
Am I correct? Or was I imagining things?
I am installing a US Gear Unified Brake System so it has a trickle charge circuit, I just don't like the idea of leaving the circuit live if I don't have to.
