Does the transmission have a manual override button?

Temporary misplaced the keys. Any way, need to take it out of park into neutral so I can move it for street sweeping. I also can't steer without the key. Guess I will turn it with a floor jack. Sweeping starts at 7:00 am.
The question is does it have a manual override or a button or something. If anybody knows could really use the info. Please and thank you.

To release the transmission you use a pen or the tool in the glovebox to push the manual release that is located at the bottom of the shift display. The cover below D will slide up and when you push the release you can shift out of park. The cover will remain open until you can start the car and put it into gear. The steering can only be unlocked with the key, unless you wish to damage the steering column. If you can't find the keys you can take the title and personal ID to a dealer and have them order you new keys for it, however you will still need to have them programmed into the cars security system for them to work.

Thank you for the info. I am sure it will come in handy someday. However, I found the keys about half an hour ago. Again thanks for the quick response.

Great to hear. Keys are always better than workarounds.
