1. Push the ignition switch to the LOCK position.

2. Apply the parking brake.

3. Using a protective cloth on the tip of a 3 mm screwdriver, remove the shift lock release cover.

● If available, a plastic trim tool can also be used.

4. Insert the small screwdriver in the shift lock release slot and push down.

5. Move the shift selector to the N (Neutral) position while holding down the shift lock release.

If the shift selector cannot be moved out of P (Park), have a NISSAN dealer check the transmission as soon as possible.

WARNING

If the shift selector cannot be moved from the P (Park) position while the engine is running and the brake pedal is depressed, the stop lights may not work. Malfunctioning stop lights could cause an accident injuring yourself and others.
