Hi Folks,

Quick question - I'm the guy with the toasted 06 VR. When it caught fire, the car was in park (GT transmission, obviously) and in park it still is. Is there an easy way to get it out of park since the electronics are disconected and toasted.

Thanks

IF battery is disconnected then all that locks it in park is ignition lock cylinder cable. Turn the key to position I and lever should move.
The electric park lock on P2's is default off.

If fire melted the TCM with integrated gear position sensor that sits on the selector shaft coming out of top of trans then that may have the lever immovable without some force.

How far do you have to move it? Can get wheel dollies for very short distance, flat bed for longer. The car is totalled, right?

Thanks - the car is toasted, but there are a couple of folks who are thinkng of taking it on as a project. Unless you get in there, it's hard to tell what's toasted and what's not, but the body itself including the front end is still pretty much pristine.
