Dodge Charger: IN CASE OF EMERGENCY / MANUAL PARK RELEASE — 8-SPEED TRANSMISSION

Dodge Charger 2011-2022 Owner's Manual / IN CASE OF EMERGENCY / MANUAL PARK RELEASE — 8-SPEED TRANSMISSION

WARNING!

Always secure your vehicle by fully applying the parking brake before activating the Manual Park Release. In addition, you should be seated in the driver's seat with your foot firmly on the brake pedal when activating the Manual Park Release. Activating the Manual Park Release will allow your vehicle to roll away if it is not secured by the parking brake, or by proper connection to a tow vehicle. Activating the Manual Park Release on an unsecured vehicle could lead to serious injury or death for those in or around the vehicle.

In order to move the vehicle in cases where the transmission will not shift out of PARK (P) (such as a depleted battery), a Manual Park Release is available.

Follow these steps to use the Manual Park Release:

  1. Firmly apply the parking brake.
  2. Remove the console storage bin.

  5. Press and maintain firm pressure on the brake pedal.
  6. Insert the screwdriver into the slot in the center of the lever, and disengage the lever locking tab by pushing it to the right.

To Reset The Manual Park Release:

  1. Push the latch (at the base of the lever, on the rear side) rearward (away from the lever) to unlatch the lever.
