u are right, that light takes around 10 secs to go off and when you are stuck in traffic that light is the last thing on your mind.

in many cases if the engine is killed on the move it is advisable to crank the engine right away as the cars with power brakes can end up in a big mess

Yes, the brakes will be less effective when the engine is in off state. It is better that it is started immediately on the move.

That's cool..

Any idea whether the same kind of feature is available for NHC as well? I don't wanna try and test it out Just curious to know from fellow BHPians who have had similar experience with their NHC or even OHC in the past.
