Lincoln Corsair Owners Manual / Transmission / Automatic Transmission - Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)

WARNING: Always fully apply the parking brake and make sure you shift into park (P). Failure to follow this instruction could result in personal injury or death.

WARNING: Do not apply the brake pedal and accelerator pedal simultaneously. Applying both pedals simultaneously for more than a few seconds will limit engine performance, which may result in difficulty maintaining speed in traffic and could lead to serious injury.

WARNING: When your vehicle is stationary, keep the brake pedal fully pressed when shifting gears. Failure to follow this instruction could result in personal injury, death or property damage.

Note: The ready to drive indicator may be off and you may not be able to shift out of park (P) unless the remote control is inside your vehicle.

Understanding the Shift Positions of Your Automatic Transmission

Lincoln Corsair. Automatic Transmission - Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)

Putting your vehicle in or out of gear:

To place your vehicle in gear from park (P):

The instrument cluster displays the current gear.

Park (P)

With the transmission selector in park (P), your vehicle locks the transmission and prevents the wheels from turning. Always come to a complete stop before putting your vehicle into and out of park (P). An audible chime sounds once you select park (P).

The electric parking brake may apply when you shift to park (P) without fully pressing the brake pedal. The electric parking brake applies when you shift to park (P) on large slopes. The electric parking brake releases with the drive away release operation.

Automatic Return to Park

Your vehicle has a feature that automatically shifts your vehicle into park (P) when any of the following conditions occur:

If you switch your vehicle off when moving, your vehicle first shifts into neutral (N) until it slows down enough to automatically shift into park (P).

Note: This feature does not operate when your vehicle is in stay in neutral mode or neutral tow.

Note: If you have waited an extended period of time, 2-15 minutes before starting your vehicle, unlatching your seatbelt causes this feature to activate, even with the driver door closed.

Note: This feature may not work properly if the door ajar switch is malfunctioning. If your door ajar indicator does not illuminate when you open the driver door or the indicator illuminates with the driver door closed, see your authorized dealer.

Reverse (R)

With the transmission selector in reverse (R), your vehicle moves backward. Always come to a complete stop before shifting into and out of reverse (R).

Neutral (N)

WARNING: In neutral (N) your vehicle has the ability to roll freely. If you intend to leave your vehicle, make sure you apply the parking brake.

In neutral (N), power does not transmit to the driven wheels, but the transmission is not locked. You can start the engine with the transmission in this position.

Stay in Neutral Mode

Stay in neutral mode allows your vehicle to stay in neutral when you exit your vehicle. Your vehicle must be stationary to enter this mode.

To enter stay in neutral mode:

A message appears in the information display screen when your vehicle enters stay in neutral mode.

To exit stay in neutral mode, apply the brake and select a different gear.

Note: Stay in neutral mode is a temporary vehicle state with the ignition off. Extended usage of stay in neutral mode may result in a battery voltage reduction to a level where the vehicle may no longer start. Do not tow your vehicle in this mode unless in an emergency situation as it will cause a drain on the battery.

Note: When entering an automatic car wash, always shift in neutral (N). If you are exiting the vehicle by the car wash, stay in neutral mode is available. Failure to do this could result in vehicle damage not covered by the vehicle warranty.

Drive (D)

Drive (D) is the normal driving position for the best fuel economy.

If Your Vehicle Gets Stuck In Mud or Snow

If your vehicle gets stuck in mud or snow, you can rock it out by shifting between forward and reverse gears, stopping between shifts in a steady pattern. Press lightly on the accelerator in each gear.

Note: Do not rock your vehicle if the engine is not at normal operating temperature or damage to the transmission may occur.

Note: Do not rock your vehicle for more than a minute or damage to the transmission and tires could occur, or the engine may overheat.
