Can a "bricked" Gen 1 be put into neutral and pushed out of a garage?

My 2011 has P0AA6, P1FFF, SHVCS and won't charge. Among other likely issues, I'm pretty sure my HV battery heater doesn't work. The car didn't run well in the winter anyway, so my plan is drive it to my dad's place (on ICE), swap it for his currently unused Accord and leave it in his garage until springtime. At that point, I might junk it or try getting it reprogrammed to maybe get another summer of use out of it.
My concern is that I might end up with a bricked car stuck in his garage. Hoping for confirmation that, independent of the HV battery status, I'll at least be able to shift into neutral and push it out of the garage if needed.
Anyone have experience with that? Thanks!

You can remove the passenger side panel from the shift console and push the latch with a screwdriver. That releases the shifter from Park and allows you to shift to Neutral.
