It is a safety switch at the shifter,you can remove the cover at shifter and manualy move the lock and release the shifter.

Do you have to have to remove the whole console to do this? And where is it?


I think your shiter is in the floor,remove top cover from it and you can access the switch,youtube vedio will show you,but i think you just remove the cover not dash.
