KEY INTERLOCK SYSTEM OPERATION


BHE051409000T04

Positions other than P position (Key interlock is operating)

• When the selector lever is in a position or range other than P position, the cable end is set at the key-locked position. When the engine is switched off and an attempt is made to turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position, turning of the cam is restricted by the slider because the cable end pushes the slider to the cam side, and the ignition switch cannot be turned to LOCK.

P Position (Key interlock is not operating)

• When the selector lever is in P position, the cable end is at the key-unlocked position, and because the slider does not restrict movement of the cam, the ignition switch can be turned to LOCK.
