Shifting Into Park

WARNING!
It can be dangerous to get out of the vehicle if the shift lever is not fully in P (Park) with the parking brake firmly set. The vehicle can roll. If you have left the engine running, the vehicle can move suddenly. You or others could be injured. To be sure the vehicle will not move, even when you are on fairly level ground, use the steps that follow. If you are pulling a trailer, see Driving Characteristics and Towing Tips.

Use this procedure to shift into P (Park):

1. Hold the brake pedal down and set the parking brake.

See Parking Brake (Electric) or Parking Brake (Manual) for more information.

2. Move the shift lever into P (Park) by holding in the button on the shift lever and pushing the lever all the way toward the front of the vehicle.

3. Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF.

4. For vehicles with key access, remove the key and take it with you. If you can leave the vehicle with the ignition key in your hand, the vehicle is in P (Park).

For vehicles with the keyless access system, take the keyless access transmitter with you.
