This vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission shift lock control system. The shift lock is designed to: • Prevent ignition key removal unless the shift lever is in P (Park) with the shift lever button fully released.
• Prevent movement of the shift lever out of P (Park) unless the ignition is in ON/RUN and the brake pedal is applied.
The shift lock release is always functional except in the case of an uncharged or low voltage (less than 9‐volt) battery.
If the vehicle has an uncharged battery or a battery with low voltage, try charging or jump starting the battery.
To shift out of P (Park): 1. Apply the brake pedal.
2. Turn the ignition to ON/RUN.
3. Press the shift lever button.
4. Move the shift lever to the desired position.
If still unable to shift out of P (Park): 1. Fully release the shift lever button.
2. Hold the brake pedal down and press the shift lever button again.
3. Move the shift lever to the desired position.
If the shift lever still cannot be moved from P (Park), see “Shift Lock Manual Release.”
Shift Lock Manual Release
The automatic transmission has an electric park lock. The key must be in the ON/RUN position, and the brake pedal pressed so the shift lever can be moved from the P (Park) position. If the battery has lost power, the shift lever cannot be moved from P (Park) unless the shift lock manual release is disengaged manually.
To access the shift lock manual release: 1. Apply the parking brake.
2. Open the cover to the right of the shift lever.
3. Insert a tool into the opening as far as it will go and move the shift lever out of P (Park).
If P (Park) is selected again, the shift lever will be locked again.
Have the cause of the problem fixed by your dealer.
4. Close the cover.
