I dont believe I've seen this mentioned in the owners manual but have read something about it, possibly here. There is a port on the console (circled) that I believe is used to unlock the shifter. So would the scenario be, battery dies, unlock doors with key pulled from key fob, unlock shifter using the port and shift into neutral for towing or pushing? Is that it? What is good to use to pry off the cover, or is it a small screwdriver that I probably wouldnt have in my possession?
