AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION — IF EQUIPPED
Damage to the transmission may occur if the follow-
ing precautions are not observed:
Shift into PARK only after the vehicle has come to
a complete stop.
Shift into or out of REVERSE only after the
vehicle has come to a complete stop and the engine
is at idle speed.
Do not shift from REVERSE, PARK, or NEUTRAL
into any forward gear when the engine is above
Before shifting into any gear, make sure your foot
is firmly on the brake pedal.
It is dangerous to move the shift lever out of PARK or
NEUTRAL if the engine speed is higher than idle
speed. If your foot is not firmly on the brake pedal,
the vehicle could accelerate quickly forward or in
reverse. You could lose control of the vehicle and hit
someone or something. Only shift into gear when the
engine is idling normally and when your foot is
firmly on the brake pedal.
Key Ignition Park Interlock
This vehicle is equipped with a Key Ignition Park Inter-
lock which requires the shift lever to be placed in PARK
prior to rotating the key to the LOCK position. The key
can only be removed from the ignition when the ignition
is in the LOCK position and once removed the shift lever
is locked in PARK.
