  1. Apply the parking brake.

    Note: If vehicle battery is dead, for example, no electrical power is available, you could require an external power source to apply the parking brake.

  2. Using the key or a flat head screwdriver 4.7 in (120 mm), carefully open the access cover under the arm rest console.
  3. Turn the vehicle ignition on without starting the vehicle. Press the push to start button without pressing the brake.
  4. Once in the driver seat, fully apply the brake pedal and hold. Do not release.
  5. Insert a screwdriver or your car key into the Manual Park Release lever slot, pull the Manual Park Release lever toward the rear until the detent in the slot pops up against the screwdriver or key. Allow 0.3 in (7 mm) of full upward travel of the detent, which locks in the park override mode, and you can remove the screwdriver or key. If done correctly, a message on the instrument cluster displays Park Not Available, Transmission Not in Park or Shift System Fault.

  7. Your vehicle remains in neutral (N) for emergency towing purposes.
  8. Switch off the ignition.
  9. Once it is safe to do so, and there is no risk of your vehicle rolling, disconnect the negative, black, battery cable from the battery.
