Now, is there a way to continue listening to the radio, conversing on bluetooth, etc, after shutting down the engine? sales guy tells me nobody's asked about that before. I can't imagine I'm the only one in the world who shuts off the engine while finishing a call, or continue listening to the radio when I'm waiting for somebody in the car, or get annoyed but lack of retained accessory power? it works for the windows until you open a door (and on most american cars), so why not the radio too?

Just hit the start button without foot on the brake for the radio -- hit it again for windows. Go back to the sales guy and ask if he knows how to do it next oil change. Don't let on you know. Keep asking whenever you see him.

hehe thanks Jayrider, but doesn't exactly answer my question.
I'll rephrase: Is there any way to change the push-button sequence, from:
OFF -> ACC -> RUN* -> OFF (the default)
to: OFF -> ACC -> RUN* -> ACC -> OFF (desired)where * = (start, if foot is on the brake)
so that when I get somewhere and turn off the engine, I don't have to wait for the radio to reboot before continuing to listen to music and/or talk on the bluetooth?

I think I understand you, this got me, too.
When you're parked/done driving, double press the start button, two full presses quickly...say, both presses within one second.
With my '09 LE, the radio stays on, the engine stops. I haven't tested this with the Bluetooth, but I think this gets you to where you want to be. Everything is on, but the engine is off...and you get there seamlessly.
When I first tried to make this work, I'd turn the car off (one press), and then press start without the brake (second press). It would take over 5 seconds to start everything back up.
Hope this is what you're talking about. It made me so happy to find this "feature."

EUREKA! Just ran out and tried it, the accessories stay on, Bluetooth and everything! going to take a little practice to master the touch (some of the second taps didn't register; maybe didn't push hard enough?), but that's EXACTLY what I was looking for! My faith in engineers has been restored. Too bad tech writers and the local sales folk and techs weren't aware of that "hidden" feature, would have saved plenty o' fumbling with the cellphone deep in my jeans pocket in desperate attempts to salvage the call, and, more recently, gas (and dirty looks) while idling at my destination until the call was over. Thanks stevemile!
Now, if there was only a way to tweak the auto volume adjust timing (not sensitivity) and speed-sensing wipers so they wipe immediately when releasing brake pedal after a full stop (as opposed to halfway through the intersection)...

#42 of 42 Murano - XM Skipping Channels
Jan 11, 2010 (6:14 pm)
Just bought a new 2010 LE murano. Was going through the XM channels and found that its skipping from 98 straight to 115. Is that normal? I can't find anything online about it. Just looking for some input before I call the dealer.
