Car showed off, but all screens and music were powered on.

    Noobie question here. My wife is a wee bit intimidated by our new MS. After two weeks, she has finally started to take it out on her own. Tonight she drove it home without me. When I arrived 45 minutes later I observed that though the car was unoccupied, all screens were on, music was playing and climate control was operating. When I got in the car I saw CAR Off on the left display.
    Would this happen if she left the car without engaging P? Is there another potential cause for this?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Generally the car will put itself in Park when you open a door. Leaving the car in Neutral requires an extra step or two.

    Is it possible that the door was ajar? That can leave music and climate control running. See Keeping the radio ON when exiting the car for similar tricks.

    Might have been. I didn't notice.
    Thanks
