Lincoln Aviator: Transmission / Stay in Neutral Mode

Note: Stay in Neutral mode is a temporary vehicle state that works with the engine in a running or OFF state. Once in this mode, maintain sufficient battery voltage, or your vehicle returns to park (P) if left active for an extended period of time when the engine is off.

Failure to follow this instruction could result in vehicle damage not covered by the vehicle warranty.

Note: When entering an automatic car wash, always enter the Stay in Neutral mode. Stay in Neutral mode must be enabled if you are exiting the vehicle before the car wash.

Extended usage of Stay in Neutral mode could result in a battery voltage reduction to a level where the vehicle no longer starts.

Do not tow your vehicle in this mode.

With the transmission selector in Stay in Neutral mode, you can start your vehicle and it is free to roll.

To enter Stay in Neutral mode, do the following:

  1. Bring your vehicle to a complete stop.
  2. Shift into neutral (N).
  3. Press neutral (N) again within five seconds after shifting to neutral (N).

Note: The Stay in Neutral mode confirmation message appears in the information display when your vehicle has entered Stay in Neutral mode and the neutral (N) button on the transmission selector slowly blinks.

To exit Stay in Neutral mode, press park (P) at any time, or apply the brakes when the engine is running, to shift into a different driving position.

Note: You can select the (P) position with or without brakes applied when the engine is OFF.
