Keyless ignition - powering accessories

Hi:

I have a 2013 titanium hatch that has the push button start. Is there any way to run the radio and other accessories without actually starting the engine? On a normal ignition one would turn the key one or two clicks.

Thanks

Just press the power button on the stereo and it goes into the "1 hour" mode, which on a titanium means it may shut off after 15-30 minutes, but allows you to turn the radio on without turning the car on. All 2012+ Foci models can turn the radio on without the ignition on.

Short of hitting the ignition/ power button on without putting your foot on the brake to put the car into accessory mode afaik. All of this is discussed in the owners guide.

Thanks again. I looked at the manual before posting, but must have missed that part. I appreciate the help.
