This vehicle is equipped with an electronic shift lock release system.
The shift lock release is designed to prevent movement of the shift lever out of P (Park) unless the ignition is in on 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 on.
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 you still cannot move the shift lever from P (Park), consult your dealer or a professional towing service.
Parking over Things That Burn
Warning: Things that can burn could touch hot exhaust parts under the vehicle and ignite. Do not park over papers, leaves, dry grass, or other things that can burn.
It is best not to park with the vehicle running. If the vehicle is left running, be sure it will not move and there is adequate ventilation.
If the vehicle is left parked and running with the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter outside the vehicle, it will turn off after one hour.
If the vehicle is left parked and running with the RKE transmitter inside the vehicle, it will turn off after two hours.
The vehicle could turn off sooner if it is parked on a hill, due to lack of available fuel.
The timer will reset if the vehicle is taken out of P (Park) while it is running.
