As the glow plugs pre-heat there will be a message in the cluster stating “Engine Start Pending, Please Wait”.

If the push button is pressed again prior to the engine starting the ignition will switch to accessory mode and not start.

Also while starting the engine your foot has to stay on the brake pedal until the vehicle starts or you will have to re-initiate the engine start.
