Lincoln Corsair 2020-2022 Owners Manual / Transmission / Automatic Transmission - Excluding: 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: 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.

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.

Note: You may not be able to shift out of park (P) unless the intelligent access key is inside your vehicle.

Understanding the Shift Positions of Your Automatic Transmission

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

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

  1. Fully press and hold the brake pedal when shifting out of park (P).
  2. Press the desired gear on the transmission selector.
  3. When you finish driving, come to a complete stop.
  4. Press the park (P) button on the transmission selector.

The instrument cluster displays the current gear.

Park (P)

With the transmission 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 tone 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

The transmission returns to park (P) if any of the following occur:

  • You switch the ignition off.
  • Your seatbelt is not fastened, and you open the driver door.
  • The driver door is open, and you unfasten your seatbelt.

Note: This feature does not operate if your vehicle is in Stay in Neutral mode.

Note: If you switch the ignition off when your vehicle is moving, your vehicle shifts into neutral (N) until it slows down enough to shift in park (P).

Note: If you have waited for more than two minutes before switching the ignition on, unfastening 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 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

Use this feature to keep your vehicle in neutral (N) when you exit the vehicle.

To enter stay in neutral mode:

  • Bring your vehicle to a complete standstill.
  • Press the neutral (N) button on the transmission selector.
  • Press the neutral (N) button again to enter stay in neutral mode.

Note: Stay in neutral mode is a temporary vehicle state with the ignition off. Once in this mode, sufficient battery voltage must be maintained, or your vehicle returns to park. Extended usage of stay in neutral mode may result in a battery voltage reduction to a level where the vehicle may no longer start, and the vehicle returns to park (P). Do not tow your vehicle in this mode.

Note: When entering an automatic car wash, always shift into 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.

Note: A confirmation message appears in the information display when your vehicle enters stay in neutral mode.

To exit stay in neutral mode, press the brake pedal and shift into park (P).

Drive (D)

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

Manual Park Release

WARNING: When doing this procedure, you need to take the transmission out of park (P) which means your vehicle can roll freely. To avoid unwanted vehicle movement, always fully apply the parking brake prior to doing this procedure. Use wheels chocks if appropriate.

WARNING: If the parking brake is fully released, but the brake warning lamp remains illuminated, the brakes may not be working properly. Have your vehicle checked as soon as possible.

WARNING: Do not drive your vehicle until you verify that the stoplamps are working.

Use the manual park release to move your transmission from the park (P) position in the event of an

Activating the Manual Park Release Cable

  3. Using a tool or the key blade, carefully remove the access cover.

    Note: Do not pull the tether until you are in the driver seat.

  4. Switch the ignition on, but do not start your vehicle.
  5. Once in the driver seat, fully press the brake pedal and hold. Do not release. Pull the orange tether towards the driver seat until the tether gets locked in the override position. Then leave the tether.

    Note: Your vehicle is now out of the park (P) position and is free to roll.

  8. With your foot still fully applied on the brake pedal, disengage the parking brake.
  9. Your vehicle remains in neutral (N) for emergency towing purposes.
  10. Switch off the ignition.
  11. Once it is safe to do so, and there is no risk that your vehicle will roll, disconnect the negative, black, battery cable from the battery. If the vehicle rolls before the battery is disconnected, the electric parking brake may automatically apply. The operator may need to release the parking brake again.

Returning Your Vehicle to Normal Mode

  1. Once it is safe to do so, reconnect the negative, black, battery cable to the battery.
  2. Apply the parking brake.

    Note: If the vehicle battery is dead, for example, no electrical power is available, you could require external power to apply the parking brake.

  3. Fully apply the brake pedal and hold, do not release. Pull the orange tether outward toward the driver seat to remove it from the override position.
  4. The cable releases and retracts back to its original rest position.
  5. Stow the manual park release cable tether back inside the instrument panel dash hole, and install the access cover by pressing it back in position.
  6. With your foot fully applied on the brake pedal, start your vehicle. Confirm that your vehicle is in the park (P) position and that the instrument cluster indicates park (P).
  7. If the instrument cluster is not displaying the park (P) position or there is a message stating Park Not Available, Transmission Not In Park, or Shift System Fault, apply the parking brake before exiting your vehicle. Contact an authorized dealer for service.

Automatic Transmission Adaptive Learning

This feature may increase durability and provide consistent shift feel over the life of your vehicle. A new vehicle or transmission may have firm shifts, soft shifts or both. This is normal and does not affect the operation or durability of the transmission. Over time, the adaptive learning process fully updates transmission operation.

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 could 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.

Note: If your vehicle has SelectShift™, you can pull away in second gear.

  1. Shift into drive (D).
  2. Pull the (+) paddle until 2 shows on the instrument cluster.

    Principle of Operation The traction control system helps avoid drive wheel spin and loss of traction. If your vehicle begins to slide, the system applies the brakes to individual wheels and, when needed, reduces engine power at the same time. If the wheels spin when accelerating on slippery or loose surfaces, the system reduces engine power in order to increase traction...
