Turning off engine without turning off radio

Anyway to turn off engine without turning off the radio?

Like if it's a key system, turning one notch would have shut the engine but still all accessories mode to be on.

Sincerely,
menoworry

page 76 of the owner's guide:
Turning the vehicle off: Shift to or select Park, then press ENGINE START/STOP.
If you press the button and the shift lever is not in Park, the vehicle goes into
Accessory mode.

That's odd. I cannot find that in my manual. I can only find this reference to car wash mode on page 334.

If you want to keep the transmission in (N position [car wash mode]
With the engine running:
1. Press and hold the brake pedal.
2. Select N.
3. With in five seconds, press the ENGINE START/STOP button.
The power mode changes to ACCESSORY.
This puts the vehicle in car wash mode which must be used when your vehicle
is pulled through a conveyor type automatic car wash where you or an
attendant do not remain in the vehicle.
The gear position remains in (N with the power mode in ACCESSORY for 15
minutes, then, it automatically changes to P and the power mode changes to
OFF.
Manually changing to P cancels ACCESSORY mode. The P indicator comes on
and the power mode changes to OFF.

i googled the online owner's guide and went to this PDF

http://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/p.../BZ31515OG.pdf

go to page 45/75 of the pdf, labelled page 76 at the corner of the page

note: it's owner's GUIDE not owner's manual

Thanks! I see that now, but how does it know it's not in car wash mode if you put the car in Neutral. Maybe use anything but P or N? Car wash mode times out after 15 minutes.

I downloaded the guide. I was surprised I didn't have it already or find it on my DVD. Maybe I overlooked it. Thanks again.
