Shift lock function

The shift lock function helps prevent the improper operation of the select lever.

● The select lever cannot be operated unless the ignition switch is turned to the ON position and the brake pedal is depressed.

● The select lever cannot be moved from the P position to any other position before the brake pedal is depressed. Depress the brake pedal first, and then operate the select lever.

● Only the P position allows you to turn the key from the Acc position to the LOCK position and remove the key from the ignition key cylinder.

● If the ignition switch is turned to the LOCK position while the select lever is in the N position, the select lever may not be moved to the P position after a period of time. Therefore, move the select lever to the P position with the brake pedal depressed soon after the ignition switch is turned to the LOCK position.
