The key interlock device prevents the key from being pulled out after the ignition switch is turned OFF, unless the shift lever is moved to the P position. Thus, the driver is urged to park the vehicle in the P position.
The shift lock mechanism prevents the shift lever from being shifted to any position other than the P position, unless the ignition switch is ON, and the brake pedal is depressed. This mechanism helps to prevent unintentional acceleration.
The shift lock solenoid has a built-in P detection switch. ^ System Diagram •
