Tried this last night on my 2012. No worky. I even put the shifter in neutral and tried it. All I saw was "Vehicle not in Park" message as the Jeep was rolling at 8-10 mph in front of my house.

Re: How to kill the engine...

I never thought of this. Scenes from "Christine" are now floating inside my head.

I suppose the best way to kill the engine would be to have a switch in a circuit to the power panel under the hood, and cut out a relay the powers the ECU or ignition system....

Just guessing here, but with the 2011-13's there is actually a key hole behind the push start button, maybe we would actually have to use the key inside the fob to manually shut the engine off. Completely guessing though.

Re: How to kill the engine...

'12 manual also says to hold down the button over 6 mph and eventually it will turn off. Doesn't help if it rolls off while tripping you in a parking lot Guess that just leaves the parking brake in an emergency.

Of course, if the car is rolling > 15mph then the wheel is pretty easy to turn. A number of cars run pumps that shut off power steering at speed anyway. Also, there is usually enough vacuum left in a system to provide for a decent stop even if the engine is not turning.
Actually IIRC the 2014s have an electric power steering pump so windmilling the engine will not keep you in power steering....
