(lol)
o, so someone thinks there special huh?

From a quick glance at the schematic, I'm going to say NO. At least not REMOTELY possible.

You'd have to short TWO wires to ground between the multifunction lever and the PCM at the same time, and the car couldn't ACCELLERATE. It would simply set.

You also have TWO brake inputs to disengage it should one or the other fail.
Don't go by the mistaken conclusion that it happened on a mercedes or ford so it must be possible. I'm quite sure we have a very different circuit design.

Is there an ACTUAL problem here, or not? If NOT, we'll move this topic to General Chat.

wouldn't it be easier to push the cc **** to "off" than shift the car into neutral and turn the key off? Just a thought.

He was talking about that wire being SHORTED to ground, so it couldn't be turned off. But more than one wire would have to be shorted, among other things. You'd literally have to have 3 or 4 very uncommon failures occur all at once.
