If engine is running you are still able to lock the car, I have done this a few times to keep ac running but ASS gets disabled.

System works flawless as far I have experienced with almost 5000 miles so far.

I never shut my car off by pressing the button. I always come to a stop, put car in neutral, lift off clutch, pull up hand brake and car goes to ready. Once I open my door it says ASS is disabled and engine goes to off. I walk away with my music still playing and hit the lock button and music stops and car fully shuts down and alarm arms, beep.
I don't get the ASS disabled thing. Needle just drops to OFF.
