1. Start the vehicle or switch the vehicle into service mode.
2. Open the driver's side door while applying the brake.
3. Shift the transmission into NEUTRAL.
4. If the transmission indicator does not display neutral, start the process over from step one.
This procedure allows the driver to exit the vehicle when the transmission is in neutral. However this condition will only last until the driver’s door is opened. When the driver’s door is opened with the transmission in neutral, the parking brake will engage and the transmission will immediately shift to park.
