you should be able to turn the engine off when the car is in neutral you just won't be able to take the key out.

All the car washes I frequent let you keep the engine on.


Their is no key. It just has a fob you carry in your pocket. If I put car in neutral and press engine stop nothing happens. I cant figure it out.


Will the car allow you to turn it off and THEN just put it neutral?

Darius Hermanski

There must be a brake sensor on your car prohibiting the engine being turned off without the car being in parking. Try the handbrake and see if that will allow you to switch the engine off.

I'd try turning it off then putting it in neutra then, but you ought to try looking in the manual to see if the manufacturer put anything in there about this problem. As for the car wash I've never been to one that made me put it in neutral and turn the engine off either.


you cant turn car off and they change gears.

Bradley Shelledy

then go to a car wash that doesn't require you to put the car in neutral and turn off the engine


Wash it by hand- it's a new car- an auto wash will mess your paint up


they wont shut off, unless its in park. Just try to put one on a rack to work on it........This is one of Chryslers BAD ideas.
