The shift lock control feature was intended to prevent drivers from shifting out of Park with the
vehicle running without the brakes applied. However, if the ignition switch is in the Accessory
(ACC) position, it may be possible on some vehicles to move the shift lever out of Park WITHOUT
first activating the brake.
The shift lock control system is ONLY active when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ON position.
Note: not all ignition switches have a accessory position. Try that first otherwise the shift interlock mechanisum will need to be checked for problem.
