I have a 2003 Pilot that has a good battery but no power to anything. I am parked under a carport and I can't raise my hood far enough to use the hood support. Since I have no power I cannot release my gearshift lever out of park to roll it back far enough to raise the hood all the way. If I use the manual gearshift release to get it out of park and move the car will I be able to put the car back in to park?

Did you notice that there are two holes in the hood for the support rod - one on the driver's side and one near the center of the front edge?

Try this to release the shift lock, Then you'll be able to put it in neutral and push it back to a better, more accessible position.

Know anyone with a lithium portable power bank? I picked one up to prep for any no-starts this winter and it worked like a champ to start my lawn tractor with a dead battery.

Great instructions- thanks for the link.
I had to do this on an Old Explorer I had a year ago.

You can use anything small and think, like a slender screwdriver also IIEC, not just a key. Use could use any key actually too, right?
