What does the push button warning mean?

If your car has a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a push button start, you may see the push warning show up on your vehicle information display. The image display shows the word “Push” and the outline of the start button. This warning shows up immediately after the Shift P warning when you move the key to the accessory position and the car is in park. To turn off the warning, just:

  1. Turn the key to On.

  2. Turn the key to Off.
