Default Push-button start: can you go from "running" to "on"?

We just got a 2014 Outlander with the push-button start. When you drive somewhere and then park it, is there anyway to shut off the engine and still keep the audio system on without going through the "off" state first? I don't mind too much if I'm listening to the radio, but when I'm listening to music via bluetooth, it has to connect again after being shut off.

Did you try to hold button while engine is running?

Yeah, that didn't work. Tapping it quickly twice didn't work either.

Let me know if you figure this one out. I've tried everything I can think of. Amazing how something so simple apparently got left out.

There does not seem to be a way to do it with just the button, at least I could not find one. I asked their head mechanic, but no luck. They said “This is the way it is designed to work”
I found a simple workaround though.

Do not switch transmission in Park before shutting down the engine. Keep it in Drive or Neutral then press the Start/Stop button. The engine then will shuts off in ACC mode. You can then switch the transmission into Park or set the hand break . ACC mode will stay on.

I usually stream the music from the phone over Bluetooth to the in car audio system and this workaround keeps the music playing at least until you have to start the car again. Otherwise, you lose the music for at least 20-30 seconds while Bluetooth reconnects after OFF->ACC transition

Yes, I tried this last night, and it works. Thanks!
