Does any body knows what does shift lock button do in new Vitz?
Havnt found anything about it in any thread, so thought it will be useful to every1 if some one tried it?
according to my info when ur car is switched off and u want to push it if ur car battery is down or in case of any other prob,u can shift the *** from parking p to neutral n by pushing that button.
it is there so that you may move the gear level when the car is off.
some how i think its there to change the gear to N (neutral) without using the key, to move the car.
But in my Vitz it only works when the key is turned to (ON) position
Thanks guys. will give it a try today just to confirm.
You all are correct, checked it myself. Its used to move Gear lever from P to N withought Putting key in it.
Well that makes good sense, you don't have to start your car.And i guess by turning key to ON position it also frees up the steering wheel.
Did your steering get free or stayed locked?
thee is another thing when u start the engine then first u were press the brake pedal there is alink btween brake pedal and shift lever first u press the brake then ur shift lever works . suppose ur vehicle having some trouble then u will press this button for shift it to neutral..
Good point made, will check it today and update accordingly..
Yes theres a link, you can not move from P to any other gear untill and unless you press brake pedal...
And this shift lock is when i guess your car is having any trouble or for toeing purposes..
