    Repair manual does not show a bypass for that car. If you have the owners manual that might be place to check for a overide or bypass method.

    Just above the P there is an access point looks like a button, lift this up to gain access to shifter lock release.
    Use the key to push down in slot while moving shifter. May take a little practise!
