If you press the PUSH START/STOP button while driving a vehicle equipped with such a feature, the typical response will depend on the specific design and functionality of the vehicle. However, in most modern vehicles, pressing the start/stop button while the vehicle is in motion will not shut off the engine or turn off the car quickly.

Here are a few common scenarios that may occur:
- Ignoring the command: Many vehicles are designed to ignore the start/stop button press while the vehicle is in motion. This is a safety feature to prevent accidental engine shutdowns while driving. The button press may simply be ignored, and the engine will continue to run.
- Activating the “Engine Stop/Start” system: Some vehicles have an Engine Stop/Start system that automatically shuts off the engine when the vehicle comes to a complete stop, such as at a traffic light, to save fuel. If you press the start/stop button while driving, it may activate or deactivate this feature, depending on the vehicle’s programming. If the system is already active, pressing the button may disable it, allowing the engine to continue running.
- Displaying a warning or alert: The vehicle’s onboard computer or infotainment system may display a warning or alert message when you press the start/stop button while driving. It may inform you that the action is not allowed while the vehicle is in motion.
