Shift Lock Override Button

In order to move the shift lever out of Park, the ignition switch must be in the Accessory or ON position and the brake pedal must be depressed. When the brake pedal is depressed, the ECU turns on the solenoid, moving the plate stopper and allowing the shift lock plate to move down with the grooved pin.

If the shift lock solenoid becomes inoperative, the shift lever cannot be moved and the vehicle cannot be moved. The shift lock override button can be used to release the plate stopper from the shift lock plate, releasing the shift lever so it can be moved from the Park position.
