How can you put the transmission in neutral without the key?

On my 93 Metro on the console (at the end towards the back seat ) there is a square button, it pulls out, and when you pull it out you can change gears, of course you still have to hit the brake pedal.

Open the hood and pop off the transmission shift cable from the transmission linkage, then rotate linkage by hand into neutral.

Put transmission in neutral, brake, steer off of road, and then shut key off. Put transmission in neutral, brake, steer off of road, and then shut key off.

you will probably have to get under the car and unhook the shifter cable from the transmission and then you can put it in neutral manually by hand.

You would need to take the shift cable off at the transmission and move the lever manually.

Either disconnect the driveshaft, or, if it has a manual transmission, put it in neutral. Or, if it has a transfer case, put that in neutral.

You don't have to be able to start a car to put it into neutral. Put the key in, turn it to on, then the shifter will be unlocked and you can move it to neutral.

Yes. You just keep the transmission in neutral... for an added measure, you can put the transfer case in neutral, as well.

I think you have to put your transmission on Neutral then shift to 4x4.

If it has a manual transmission, you simply put it into neutral. If it's a 4x4 and has a manual transfer case, either with a manual or automatic transmission, you simply put that into neutral. If it's a 2wd with an automatic, or a 4wd with an automatic transmission and an electronic transfer case which does not have the option to put the transfer case into neutral, then you have to disconnect the driveshafts.

Turn the key to the run position and then put it on neutral. c.s.

Just put the key in the ignition and turn it like you would to start it. Once the key is in the on position just apply the brake to shift. If you have a manual transmission you can push start it, ive never heard of push starting an auto tranny car

Couple ways to go about it. Put the transfer case in neutral (or the transmission, if a manual), and you can tow it from either axle. If it has an electronic transfer case without a switch to go into neutral and an automatic transmission, you'd have to separate the driveshaft from the axle remaining on the ground.

Put the transmission in neutral then move the 4x4 selector

turn the key to the on position, depress the brake pedal and select neutral

Call a locksmith. They have the tools necessary to take the lock apart and pop the key out. Or at least they have the tools to pull the key out - perhaps without taking anything apart.

If it is an automatic put your transfer case in neutral and your transmission in park, and turn your key to the first notch so the steering wheel moves, This is what we have done for years with our jeeps.
