Question Can you shift into Park while moving

Most of my cars, over the years, have been sticks, therefore I am in the habit of holding the shifter while I drive. On a few occasions I must have pressed the "Park" button while at a light, because when I stepped on the gas the car didn't move, because it was in Park.

Since the last time that happen, I have been worried that I might accidently shift into Park while moving, which would not be a good thing.

I would assume that the Trans computer wouldn't allow that to happen, but the owners manual warnings against placing the car in Park while moving.

Does anyone know if the car can actually shifted into park while moving?

I can't answer your question other than to reference the manual as you have already done. My experience is that it is really easy to inadvertently nudge the selector into neutral which does not require any button pushing, and this may be what you're actually doing vs. putting it in park.

I highly doubt you will be able to park the car while moving. Jaguar has got to have that covered. It would destroy the transmission if that was possible.

But I'm pretty sure you can move it to neutral by accident.

I can't see that being a possibility. What would happen? The tires lock up? If the gas pedal stops working than you are just in neutral so park would be like the emergency brake. I don't think that is going to happen.

if you threw the car into park while moving (if you could) yes that tires would probably lock up and you would destroy your transmission,

Thanks for the responses, but the question is, can you place the car in park while it is moving. Since the Park button is right on top, you could press it by accident by just resting you hand on the shifter.

Your wheels will lock up. Not sure if it has it but it's possible Jaguar might have disengaged it once you rear a specific speed and beyond. If thats the case, pressing it may do nothing if you're at say.... 80 MPH.

that possible, but it could also be a safety issue.
what if the brakes stopped working, this would be a way to slow and stop the vehicle.

Sorry, but park CANNOT be used to slow the car, if you shifted into park, the rear wheels would LOCK up until the park claw broke and destroyed the trans and then the car would be free wheeling. Not good!

Speaking as a software and firmware developer: it'd be pretty shocking if the guys who did the firmware failed to lock out input from the park button if the vehicle is in motion at all either forward or in reverse.
