In the event of an electrical failure, the vehicle can be shifted out of PARK by using the following procedure.

1.Turn the key to the ACC or ON position.

2.Remove the liner to the cubby bin to the right side of the shifter.

3.Depress the BTSI override (2) on the side of the shifter assembly (1).

4.While the override is depressed, move the shifter out of the PARK position.

5.Return the cubby bin liner to its original location.
