    it is there so that you may move the gear level when the car is off.
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    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
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    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?

    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..
