Shift Lock System General

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 system mainly consists of the shift lock ECU, shift lock solenoid, key interlock solenoid and shift lock override button.

The shift lock solenoid has a built-in P detection switch. ^ System Diagram •
