Toyota Yaris: Automatic Transaxle Controls / Warning Light and Transaxle Ranges

Toyota Yaris XP210 (2020-2021) Owner's Manual / When Driving / Transaxle / Automatic Transaxle Controls / Warning Light and Transaxle Ranges

Warning Light

The warning light turns on when the system has a malfunction. Refer to Warning Lights.

Transaxle Ranges

  • The shift position indicator light in the combination meter illuminates. Refer to Warning/Indicator Lights.
  • The selector lever must be in P or N to operate the starter.

P (Park)

P locks the transaxle and prevents the front wheels from rotating.

R (Reverse)

In position R, the vehicle moves only backward. You must be at a complete stop before shifting to or from R, except under rare circumstances as explained in Rocking the Vehicle.

N (Neutral)

In N, the wheels and transaxle are not locked. The vehicle will roll freely even on the slightest incline unless the parking brake or brakes are on.

Apply the parking brake or depress the brake pedal before moving the selector lever from N to prevent the vehicle from moving unexpectedly.

D (Drive)

D is the normal driving position. From a stop, the transaxle will automatically shift through a 6-gearsequence.

M (Manual)

M is the manual shift mode position. Gears can be shifted up or down by operating the selector lever. Refer to Manual Shift Mode on.

WARNING

Always set the selector lever to P and set the parking brake when parking

Only setting the selector lever to the P position without using the parking brake to hold the vehicle is dangerous. If P fails to hold, the vehicle could move and cause an accident.

If the engine is running faster than idle, do not shift from N or P into a driving gear

It’s dangerous to shift from N or P into a driving gear when the engine is running faster than idle. If this is done, the vehicle could move suddenly, causing an accident or serious injury.

Do not shift into N when driving the vehicle

Shifting into N while driving is dangerous. Engine braking cannot be applied when decelerating which could lead to an accident or serious injury.

NOTICE

  • Shifting into P, N or R while the vehicle is moving can damage your transaxle.
  • Shifting into a driving gear or reverse when the engine is running faster than idle can damage the transaxle.
  • Do not shift into N when driving the vehicle. Doing so can cause transaxle damage.
