Rav Transmission Selector Shaft

If you cannot shift the selector lever out of "P" position to other positions even though the brake pedal is depressed, use the shift lock override button as follows:

1. Turn the ignition key to "ACC" or "LOCK" position. Make sure the parking brake is applied.

2. Pry up the cover with a flathead screwdriver or equivalent.
