Transmission “froze” tonight

Weirdest thing happened tonight. After parking the car, with the ignition still on, I tried to put it back in D to move the car forward because I had forgotten there were things in the trunk that I wanted to take out and I needed some extra room in order to open the rear hatch. But the transmission would not engage.

Instead, I got a weird “A” symbol on the instrument panel (see picture below). Anyone know what the heck is going on?

Oh, you’re probably right. No idea how I activated it. I’ll check the manual as Justin suggested.

Did your seat belt still on or off?

Yeah. I assume he took the seat belt off with the ignition still on after placing it in park, thus activating the parking brake.
