Steering Column Shift Lever

If the vehicle has a steering column shift lever, use this procedure to shift the vehicle into P (Park):

1. Hold the brake pedal down.

2. Move the shift lever into P (Park) by pulling the shift lever toward you and moving it up as far as it will go.

3. With your foot still holding the brake pedal down, set the parking brake. See Parking Brake for more information.

4. Turn the ignition key to LOCK/OFF.

5. Remove the key and take it with you. If you can leave the vehicle with the ignition key in your hand, the vehicle is in P (Park).
