  • Auto Transmission Shift Lock Button

    The previous generation Toyotas had a button next to the shift lever, that was easy to press and slip the Auto transmission into N (to push it out of the garage etc. if you wanted to do that without starting the vehicle).
    The new Fortuners have a slot, that the manual says you push by inserting something into it...

    Does anyone use it and how do you make it work?

      So you need to have power on and foot on the brake as well. I did read that back when I tried it, will have to give it another go. Thanks mate.

        I've got the auto and never had to put my foot on the break while starting it.

          If you have push button start/proximity key, foot must be on the brake to start...unfortunately!

        on the GX , you can insert the ignition key into that small square hole , which will allow you to move the gearshift out of Park.

          Yeah you should be able to use the removable key from the fob also, in fact I'm pretty sure it's designed for just that.
