Over Ride for Back Up Warning

I pulled my car in single car garage. Trying to back out the back up warning indicator comes on and the car switches back to neutral. Is there a way to override the warning light.

Wait, so you're telling me if someone is behind me and I feel my life is in danger I can't plow into their car, it automatically puts me in neutral??

I thought this only happens if the driver side door is open while backing up... I could be wrong tho.

Left it in R w/ e-brake up the other day to move something out of the way and returned to find it in N. Thought I lost my bloody mind!

But no problem backing up w/ sensors going off, maybe a glitch for Mr. Dre?

when you leave the car in gear and applied the ebrake the mechatronics shifted into neutral. it knows you don't intend to move the car when the parking brake is applied so it automatically shifts to neutral if the engine is running or park if the engine is off.

I park the car in the single car side of the 3 car garage. It's very tight. There is no one behind me and the parking brake is not on.

My garage is very tight. Until I clear the garage door, the alarm beeps. But the car does not shirt into neutral.

Same here. What OP is describing is strange.

Maybe the door is not latching properly?
