If you step on the brake before inserting the key, the engine is killed.

Taking this to the Prius Smart Key system, I would assume that the Remote Start authenticates and starts the engine, but the immobilizer will kick in if the transmission is attempted to shift without the Smart Key fob present.

Currently I have a Chevy volt but it was a bit of a disappointment but anyway I am looking to get a Prius, but the point I wanted to make about remote start. First let me say its awesome, second it only turns on accessory mode so you can't start the car and go anywhere. You actually need to have the key to go.
