Shifting out of Park

The vehicle has an automatic
transmission shift lock control
system. You have to fully apply the
brakes before you can shift from
P (Park) when the ignition is on. See
Automatic Transmission 0 172.
The shift lock control system is
designed to:
Prevent the ignition key from
being removed unless the shift
lever is in P (Park).
Prevent movement of the shift
lever out of P (Park), unless the
ignition is on and the regular
brake pedal is applied.
The shift lock control system is
always functional except in the case
of a dead battery or low voltage
(less than 9 V) battery.
If the vehicle has an uncharged
battery or a battery with low voltage,
try charging or jump starting the
battery. See Jump Starting - North
America 0 289.
To shift out of P (Park):
1. Apply the brake pedal.
2. Turn the ignition on.
3. Move the shift lever to the
desired position.
If you still are unable to shift out of
P (Park):
1. Ease the pressure on the shift
2. While holding down the brake
pedal, push the shift lever all
the way into P (Park).
3. Move the shift lever to the
desired position.
If you are still having a problem
shifting, have the vehicle serviced.
