Shifting out of Park

This vehicle is equipped with an electronic shift lock release system.

The shift lock release is designed to:

- Prevent ignition key removal unless the shift lever is in P (Park) with the shift lever button fully released, for vehicles with key access.

- Prevent movement of the shift lever out of P (Park), unless the ignition is in ON/RUN or ACC/ACCESSORY 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. See Jump Starting for more information.

To shift out of P (Park):

1. Apply the brake pedal.

2. Release the parking brake.

See Parking Brake (Electric) or Parking Brake (Manual).

3. Press the shift lever button.

4. Move the shift lever.

If unable to shift out of P (Park):

1. Fully release the shift lever button.

2. While holding down the brake pedal, press the shift lever button again.

3. Move the shift lever.

If the shift lever will not move from P (Park), consult your dealer or a professional towing service.
