The selector lever is equipped with a selector lever lock. When changing the selector lever position from P to a driving gear, depress the brake pedal and push the lock button in the selector lever in the direction of the arrow вЂ‰ or вЂ‰. To move the selector lever out of position N to position D or R, first depress and hold the brake pedal.

|Selector lever position||Designation||Meaning вЂ‰|
|Parking lock||The drive wheels are locked mechanically.
May only be selected when the vehicle is stationary. To disengage this selector lever position, depress the brake pedal and also switch on the ignition.
|Reverse gear||The reverse gear is selected.
May only be selected when the vehicle is stationary.
|Neutral||The gearbox is in the neutral position. No power is being transmitted to the wheels and the braking power of the engine cannot be used.|
|Standard driving position (normal programme)||All forward gears are shifted up and down automatically. The timing of the gear shift is determined by the engine load, your individual driving style and the speed of the vehicle.|
|Standard driving position (sport programme)||All forward gears are automatically changed up and down at higher engine speeds than in selector lever position D. This uses the full power available from the engine. The timing of the gear shift is determined by the engine load, your individual driving style and the speed of the vehicle.|
Selector lever lock
The selector lever lock in position P or N prevents gears from being engaged inadvertently, which would cause the vehicle to move.
To release the selector lever lock with the ignition switched on, depress and hold the brake pedal. Press the lock button in the selector lever at the same time.
The selector lever lock is not engaged if the selector lever is moved quickly through position N (e.g. when shifting from R to D). This makes it possible, for instance, to rock the vehicle backwards and forwards if it is stuck in snow or mud. The selector lever lock engages automatically if the brake pedal is not depressed and the lever is in position N for more than about 1 second and the vehicle is travelling no faster than approximately 5 km/h (3 mph).
In rare cases, the selector lever lock may not engage in vehicles with a dual clutch gearbox DSGВ®. The drive is then deactivated to prevent the vehicle accidentally pulling away. The green indicator lamp flashes and an information message is also displayed. Use the following procedure to engage the selector lever lock:
WARNINGSelecting an incorrect selector lever position could cause you to lose control of the vehicle, potentially leading to an accident and serious injuries.
WARNINGUnintentional vehicle movements can cause serious injury.
NOTICEIf the handbrake is not applied when the vehicle is stationary and the brake pedal is released when then selector lever is in position P, the vehicle may move a few centimetres forwards or backwards.
If the lever is moved accidentally to N when driving, take your foot off the accelerator. Wait for the engine revs in the neutral position before selecting a driving gear again.
