Did a search, and can't find any real answer. A lot of people asked, but no one really answered.

So... Can you do it while still sitting in the car? Or at all?

Xbox 360 btw

It's been confirmed that we can turn on/off the engine.

It did it, though can you do it and not get out of the car, or do you have to get out?

Huh? I just can't seem to figure out to leave me engine on. If I exit a vehicle, the engine is turned off regardless if i hold the button or not.

Been playing about 3 hours now. Sadly this is something that did not make it into V. Every time you get out the engine turns off.

I've tried to just sit in the car and turn the engine off. As I read You could on Gta v Net. Can't seem to do it at all. Also why can't I have Trevor with no shirt on ? I got some tattoos however I can't find an option to have him shirtless ?

Thanks for the 2 answers, iALLOUT4eva, and GTA_girl84. Blows my mind how many people responded without knowing what they were responding to.

I remember reading on multiple sites that you could turn engine off while you're still in the car. Weird. Oh well, it isn't a big deal at all,was just curious really.

Just trying everything, ya know. Haha

People he means when you're sat in the car, he wants to know how to turn the engine off. Not when you're getting out.

I'm still waiting for my postman so I dont have a clue but I hope they left this in the game :/

Haha, I'm so confused as too why people are having such a hard time reading! Ahhh

So far, don't think it is. You just get out of car and it turns off. Though the engine start up sounds on some cars are so sexy!

Yeah, pretty annoying... Loved that feature in IV as you could leave the place faster if you had to just step out of the car for a little while to do something, get back to the car and drive off.

Takes a bit longer now as you have to start the engine every time now after leaving the car.

Someone should ask Rockstar about that.

Yeah.. I did it once, Left the car with the raido still running... havent been able to do it again though... There must be a way... No? it was awesome in GTA 4, you could left the engine running for a quick getaway.

 

lol went to rob a store and got out into my car and the engine took ages to start... I was dead by then!

Guys the only time they leave the engine running is when they are wanted.

Same here.. you loose like half of your health when you have to start the engine while police is at your location... why not use GTA4 system?

And I managed to let the car running once. Was right at the beginning when first being able to free roam. I still heard the radio and was able to drive without having to start the engine. Hopefully they fix it. Really annoying to start the engine over and over..

Yeah same thing here, tapping Y still turns off the engine. Managed to keep the car running a few times though. Must be a bug in code.

Thats really annoying especially when you ron a store or just want to exit quickly to kill someone for random event and such. When you are wanted then, you have to turn on engine again which takes ages and if you have bad luck, police has you in sight by then..

Only time I left the engine on was when a random aggressive ped pulled me out of my car. Shouldn't be hard to implement the GTA IV system I think. I thought the way it was back then was perfect.

it's not a useless feature either, leaving the engine running was useful for getaways.

As I wrote in another thread:

 

It's NOT possible to leave the engine running after exiting your vehicle or while sitting inside of it (Sometimes it happens randomly when you exit it though).

 

You're not able to control the engine state like you were in GTA IV (Pressing Y/Triangle quick - Holding Y/Triangle).

 

Nicely put: They pretty much lied to us.

Indeed it's been confirmed, but it's not implemented! :v:

I kinda have the feeling that these things are still bugs. It's a little like the slowmo camera now, you can toggle it with the R3 button while in cinematic view, but it won't save that state, whenever you go back into cinematic mode it's at normal speed and you need to trigger the slowmo with R3 again, in GTA IV that state was saved.

Those are minor things though, I do hope that R* will end up patching some of these things. I love the game, but there are a few minor parts of the game where I have the feeling that they weren't able to polish it completely until release.

It's just another baffling omission by Rockstar North. I mean, they fix one thing, like able to watch TV without sitting down, but now I can't leave the engine running & the radio on when I leave the car. 

 

If I were a tester on this game, I'd probably have gotten the sack. I would constantly have been putting in my notes "Why is this different?", "Why have you changed this?" & on & on.
