Neutral

Post by moonlitknight » Thu Mar 15, 2018 7:27 pm

This is a hypothetical question. In the event of an electrical failure or flat battery, how would I put the car into neutral, eg to push it to a safe position? Hopefully the answer is something I'll never actually need to know.

Page 389 in the Manual.

TRANSMISSION PARK RELEASE
Make sure that the vehicle is
secured with wheel chocks. Apply
the Electric Parking Brake (EPB)
or firmly press the brake pedal.
Two people are required for this
procedure. Failure to do so can
result in unexpected movement
of the vehicle, potentially causing
serious injury or death.

The recovery agent must activate
the transmission park release before
recovery commences. The
procedure for activating the
transmission park release is covered
in a separate publication for service
personnel.
Failure to activate the
transmission park release can result
in serious transmission damage.
When recovering the vehicle, it is essential
that the transmission park release
mechanism is activated. Activating the
transmission park release mechanism locks
the transmission in Neutral (N) and
prevents the transmission from
automatically selecting Park (P).

Not sure how this is done but I am sure it will be published at some point. F-Pace has the same info

Log into TOPIx and navigate to the Documents tab, then Roadside Assistance, then Vehicle Recovery Guide. This is a downloadable PDF that I keep in my phone just incase.

Here's the document for those who do not want to create a Topix account.

I think we are looking at pages 7 and 8.

Remove the engine cover, you’ll see a black switch attached to a cable on top of the engine. Pull the switch out until it clicks into place....its now in neutral.

The problem i had is finding the electronic handbrake override. Electrical failure meant it was stuck on and couldn’t find how to override it. 🤷🏻‍♂️
