3. Working from underneath the vehicle, remove the black
rubber plug from the front of the Park Module (a black
canister mounted on the front of the transmission).
4. Using a T25 driver bit, rotate the Instruction Park Release
shaft (located just behind the rubber plug) clockwise, at
least 20 turns, to release the Park Mechanism. The
vehicle is now out of PARK and can be moved.

Instruction Park Release will be reset automatically once
the vehicle is restarted.
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can
often be moved using a rocking motion. Turn the steering
wheel right and left to clear the area around the front
wheels. Then, shift back and forth between DRIVE and
REVERSE while gently pressing the accelerator. Use the
least amount of accelerator pedal pressure that will main-
tain the rocking motion, without spinning the wheels.
⬙ESC Off⬙ switch, to place the Electronic Stability
Control (ESC) system in
⬙Partial Off⬙ mode, before rocking the
vehicle. Refer to “Electronic Brake Control” in “Safety” for further
information. Once the vehicle has been freed, push the
switch again to restore
⬙ESC On⬙ mode.
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces generated
by excessive wheel speeds may cause damage, or even
failure, of the axle and tires. A tire could explode and
injure someone. Do not spin your vehicle’s wheels
faster than 30 mph (48 km/h) or for longer than 30
seconds continuously without stopping when you are
stuck and do not let anyone near a spinning wheel, no
matter what the speed.
