    How to shift

    I will be taking the engine out of my 2008 Chevy Suburban. How can I put this in neutral to move the truck around after the engine is out?

    With the battery disconnected on this vehicle, the shift lock-out is inactive, so you don't need to unhook the cable at the tranny. Just put the key in, turn it on and shift.
