ZS- Affirmative, several dealers have told owners to use this band-aid because the owners were not selecting neutral before starting, like the owners manaul says to do. So they figured if the owners could not be trusted to select neutral first, this was one way they could solve the problem. The correct way to do it, and the safest way, is to park in gear (1st is way lower than reverse, so gear of choice) and select neutral after turning the key to on. As soon as you open the door to get into an F1 car, the F1 pump pressurizes, so no sweat selecting neutral. If neutral will not select, then you have a problem.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
