I agree. There is a lot of conflicting documentation and it's not always 
clear what is or is not supported on any given device, and like in this 
case I sometimes waste the time to try it out only to discover that the 
lights are on, engine is running, but we're not going anywhere (oh, the 
wheels haven't been installed yet and you are sitting on jackstands...).
