TRANSMISSION PARK RELEASE

WARNING

Make sure that the vehicle is secured with wheel chocks. Apply the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) or firmly press the brake pedal. Two people are required for this procedure. Failure to do so can result in unexpected movement of the vehicle, potentially causing serious injury or death.

CAUTION

The recovery agent must activate the transmission park release before recovery commences. The procedure for activating the transmission park release is covered in a separate publication for service personnel. Failure to activate the transmission park release can result in serious transmission damage.

When recovering the vehicle, it is essential that the transmission park release mechanism is activated. Activating the transmission park release mechanism locks the transmission in Neutral (N) and prevents the transmission from automatically selecting Park (P).

When vehicle transportation is complete, make sure to deactivate the transmission park release mechanism.
