Not sure if what follows would verify all the time....but i NOTICED THAT if I run (with or without Cruise in operation)..then I stop..like for road works, then turn the ENgine OFF for waiting but keeping the keY ON instruments...to keep radio ON...then restart from there, SEt would not activate. If I turn the ey completely to OFF....then restart from there, SET WILL WORK. I tried that a few times, and it worked every time.
Will keep verifying if what i SAID HERE IS ALWAYS true.
EDIT: in view of Hudsoner experience, another factor can be involved: keping the key to instruments , I can leave the shifter in neutral.....but to turn the key to OFF, I have to shift to PARK. ( mine uses a REAL metal key) This may involve the transmission position sensor.....but I cannot , at this mooment, confirm that I did not shift to PARK each time when keeping the key on instrument...so the matter is still subject to investigation.....
