For the most part on all keyless Acura’s. To go to “Accessory 1” mode: Foot off brake, press start button once. This will allow you to listen to your music. To go to “Accessory 2” mode: Foot off brake, press start button twice. This will turn on ALL accessories. To turn off: Press start button (and everything should go back to sleep). It sounds like what is happening with you is that you are pressing accessory mode once to listen to music and you would then need to hit start button twice more to get out of accessory mode. If your vehicle is doing something else, you may have a weak remote battery, a weak car battery or some other problem. Keep in mind that this is a TLX board you are posting at, but it should be the same.

yes the key - no pun intended - is the three steps but all with your foot off the brake as soon as you foot is on the brake it will start. As #Crashmaster said there cycles.

Push 1x Accessory Mode 1 (radio, windows, screens etc) >>>
Push again Accessory Mode 2 (Pre ignition, car control system activated (dash warning lights, day time running lights, all systems on as if engine was running) >>>
Push again all is off.

I am having that same problem with my 2012 Acura TL. It happened once when my husband was driving it. He had to unhook the battery to fix it because he didn't know what to do. It ended up fixing itself. Now today it has done it twice. My husband took it for a drive then it would shut off, but when I took it for a drive it wouldn't.
