Man, that was dumb

So I'm driving through the airport parking garage and the A/S/S is becoming rather annoying. I reach down to turn it off and hit the start/stop button instead, shutting off the car and throwing it into park. You'd think I wouldn't be able to do that while the car is moving!

So what happened, did you get catapulted through the windshield? Inquiring minds want to know.

No such drama. The car just lurched hard and I managed to look foolish

I would imagine it would only do that up to a couple or few mph. Try it on the highway and let us know what happens.

Which brings up an interesting point. In an unintended acceleration (stuck throttle) situation one of the remedies is to turn off the ignition. Interesting if the car jams into park -- but perhaps if you shift into neutral before hitting the stop button that would not happen. Of course jamming it into park would stop the acceleraton too I guess.

My guess is that at high speed the electronics would prevent the transmission from going into park,... but if it did, something is sure to break.

The logic should prevent this from happening. If anything it should go to neutral rather than park if the car is moving. The ASS bypass button is right next to the start stop button. Like you I frequently remember to bypass the ASS feature once underway. It would be easy to accidentally touch the adjacent button.
