Question about 2002 Kia Sportage

My 2002 Kia Spectra won't start

First the problem started by it not starting park sometimes. Then I would have to change it to neutral, then it would start. This morning it would not start in park or neutral.

Defective plug wires is a start. Do you have a check engine light on? Have you scanned the system for fault codes?

MY 2004 KIA SPECTRA WONT START UNLESS ITS IN NEUTRAL


Parking switch damaged. The two starting positions P and N both have a separate safety switch which allows starter motor to crank only in these two positions.
Replace the "Parking Starting switch".
