    Picked up my new 2018 MX on Wednesday and have not been able to figure out how to leave the car on (e.g climate, radio, console, etc) when I, the driver get out of the car to run into a store. Is it not common practice to have the driver jump out of the car for a little bit to run into the store or something else?

    I put it in park, leave the key in the car while I run in, and everything still turns off leaving the passenger with nothing to do just be hot/cold, sit in silence and be bored.

    Am I missing something?

    Touch the screen after you jump off.

    Or, bring up A/C screen and turn on Keep Climate On when car is in Park.

    Yep, this was just added a few updates ago. Basically, touch the front AC controls before you get out and choose to leave climate system on. It'll stay on (until 20% of battery level is reached max).

    You used to have to put on the emergency break I recall or something to workaround this, but pretty easy now.

    That get's me part of the way there, but does it leave the MCU, including music on? I did notice that feature, but wish it were more intelligent to not turn off it detects passengers in the car. Come on people, this is supposed to be a smart car. :)

    All they have to do is touch the screen when you get out to keep it all on...
