Default Disable Auto Power Off in Accessories mode?

Any way to disable 20 mins timer auto power off when in Accessories mode?

This features is annoying because the car suddenly powers off while I listen to the music and the seat retracts.
If I immediately turn it back to accessories mode again, the USB drive connection is lost and I have to remove and reinsert again to be recognized.

Why would you want to sit in there for more than 20 minutes, draining the battery?

You can keep the car from going into accessory mode after you drive. Just put it in neutral, press ignition button, put the car in park, and set parking brake. You'll need to hit the ignition button a couple times to turn the car completely off. This should keep the car from turning off after 20 minutes.

I tried this and does't work. The car still turns off after 20 minutes as usual.

I finally figured out how to let the car stay in accessory mode without turning off.
All you have to do is put in Neutral, set parking brake, and press ignition button to turn off engine and go into accessory mode.

Basically leave the gear in Neutral while in accessory and it won't automatically turn off.
