The transmission cannot be moved out of park without stepping on the brake pedal.
If the brake pedal switch is broken or fails.. you cannot move the lever out of 'park'

But for emergencies, broken brake switch, or a dead battery. there is a way to override the lock.
In the shift lever mechanism, a screwdriver can push a gizmo to release the shift lever from park and allow the tranny to be in neutral to move the car..
There is a small picture in the manual showing where to push the hidden lever inside the shift console in the cabin.
