The manual is structured so that it can be used for reference. For this reason, it should be kept in the car for ready access. Do not export your Volvo to another country before investigating that country’s applicable safety and exhaust emission requirements. In some cases it may be difficult or impossible to comply with these requirements. Modifications to the emission control system(s) may render your Volvo not certifiable for legal operation in the U.S., Canada and other countries.
Volvo reserves the right to make model changes at any time, or to change specifications or design, without notice and without incurring obligation.
When your car is parked, the gear selector is locked in the (P)ark position. To release the selector from this position, turn the ignition key to position II (or start the engine), depress the brake pedal, press the button on the front of the gear selector knob and move the selector from (P)ark. If it is necessary to manually override the shiftlock system:
· Turn the starting (ignition) key to position I
· Press firmly on the “SHIFTLOCK OVERRIDE” button located at the base of the gear selector
· While holding the override button down, press the button on the front of the gear selector
· Move the selector from the (P)ark position.
