SOURCE: Battery Dead - How can I get the vehicle into neutral

i hate to say it, but you are gonna have to open the hood in the confined area and try to work with the area you have or call in whatever autoclub you use / the dealer and make it their problem.

actually you can buy a jump box that plugs into your cig. lighter and jump it that way. my jump box has the set up to do it that way. but check your owners manual to see if the car will accept that without damage.

SOURCE: How can I get a 2004 Honda Odyssey into neutral

If you have jumper cables, connect them to the honda as if you were going to try to jump it off. Be sure to have your foot on the brake when trying to shift. You can also use a "Settings Saver" that plugs into your cigarette lighter. This will provide enough power to allow it to shift.

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear

Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

SOURCE: My battery is dead and I can't move the car due to the auto gear shift stuck in park. How do I move the car to get a jump on the battery?

if you look on the center council where the shift lever is you will see a small plastic button on the drivers. Remove the button. Insert a small screwdriver into the hole and push down. You will then be able to move the shift lever into nuetral and push the car.

Need to jump my 2014 Honda Civic - it's in the garage and I can't get it into neutral to move out for a jump. Help?


Near the shifter there is a cap, remove it with a small screwdriver and insert your key or the screwdriver. While pushing it in, you will be able to shift into neutral.

Dead battery will not shift into neutral


Have you tried manually pressing the neutral safety switch? Not a 100% where it is if your shifter is on the column but the floor shifters usually top right or mid ways along the gear selector, something like a small square that pops out ive seen people release it with a small screw driver.

Can't Shift To Neutral with a Dead Battery


I am not sure about the Impala but the SAAB (also made by GM) has a small slot near the shifter where you can insert your key or screw driver (something flat) to release it from park when the car cannot be powered up.

No power....no click.....no anything....


yes this car has everything electrical even transmission shifter.if the battery were totally dead it will take long time to revive it, even if it comes back most never do but jumping the battery terminals should let you shift it into neutral unless the cables you have are bad,.load test the battery if its good than check for bad fuses and bad connections.

Ford countour battery dead and shift into netral


If all else fails, try locating a parking lock override button or hole near the shifter. Most vehichles now have them, except for those with shift knobs located on the steering column, which should release simply by holding the break all the way while turning the key to the "run" position. If you need to located the unlock button, I'll include some pictures of the override button location on my van as an example to know what to look for.

1. locate the hole.
2. Remove the cover/plug if present.
3. Insert a narrow object such as a car key.
4. Hold brake down.
5. Press inward and hold with one hand, while using the other hand to shift out of park.

(On some cars, the ignition switch has to be in the "run" position to move the shifter, so best to use a different key or a screwdriver to insert into the shift release hole/button.)
