before the shift lock will release.
Shift the selector lever to the desired position only when
the engine is idling normally and the brake pedal is
applied. Do not release the brake until ready to drive. The
vehicle may otherwise accelerate quickly when the selec-

running. Before exiting a vehicle, you should always

securing the vehicle against unwanted movement.
Furthermore, you should never leave children unat-

transmission cools down, it will return to normal opera-
