Brake/Shift Interlock System
The shift interlock system prevents the shifting from PARK (P) (when the ignition switch is in the RUN position) unless the brake pedal (2455) is depressed. The interlock system consists of an electrical solenoid mounted at the base of the steering column (3C529). If the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the solenoid has continuous power supplied unless the brake pedal is depressed.
Remove steering column as outlined in Section 11-04A or Section 11-04B .
Unclip wire terminal from solenoid.
Remove insert plate and solenoid by removing three retaining screws.
Pry off clip.
NOTE: The clip which retains the solenoid to the insert plate should not be replaced for service. The clip's sole purpose is an assembly aid for the assembly plant.
Position insert plate/solenoid assembly to the steering column and tighten the retaining screws.
Install the steering column in the vehicle as described in Section 11-04A or Section 11-04B .
I do not recommend remote start systems for manual transmissions. You would have to bypass the clutch interlock to enable the starting circuit. If you left the vehicle in gear and used the remote you could do damage to the vehicle or other property (hopefully the parking brake holds the car in place). I have never seen a factory remote system on a manual transmission, to much liability....
No component will fail as a result of you disconnecting your battery
Batteries go bad & have to be replaced all the time, so I don't know why you would wonder that
The crank sensor is a sealed magnetic sensor & it is actually an output sensor,so the engine controls are waiting on it to send a signal base on a magnetic pulse as the flywheel passes by
It is used for cylinder recognition or positioning
I read what you wrote-- alot Something seems like something !
No it doesn't,not unless you perform some kind of a test to confirm
You have no way to know if your getting fuel unless you hear the fuel pump run when your ear is next to the tank or you have a scan tool on the car & read the data or a mechanical fuel pressure gauge on fuel rail.
So you have I assume a no start condition
You need as you said fuel & spark
You can't have the MAF sensor unplugged or the air filter ducted near it off & explect the air part to be recognized.
It may have failed but not because of the battery
Do not throw parts at it to try & resolve,have it properly diagnosed
You where given a radio security code whith the car new, with instructions on how to enter it. If you don't have this info you MUST contact the dealer, any GM dealer can help. The radio goes into lock anytime the battery power is lost.
It sounds like a relay or interlock is bad. Get close to the hatch and listen for a click sound while pushing the remote button. If you don't hear anything, it will be the relay under the dash or the wire has disconnected from the interlock.
Read the label. On the bottle there should be a list of the older transmission fluids that this is acceptable for replacement. If Dexron 2 or 3 is not on that list, don't use it. Transmission fluids are made to different specifications based on the manufacturer's wishes and therefore are not interchangable without creating problems.
If there is no list on the bottle, don't use it. Find a different type that tells you it is compatable with Dexron 2 or 3. Hope this helps.
The 2001 Kia Sportage is equipped with a brake safety interlock. When you depress the brake pedal you should hear a click coming from the base of the shift lever. The click is a safety interlock which prevents accidental shifting out of park unless you have your foot on the brake. This is the most common cause for the vehicle shifter to be stuck in park. There is a switch that is activated by the brake pedal, the switch in turn energizes an interlock, which makes an audible click, allowing movement of the shift lever out of park position. If you do not hear a click when applying the brake it is most likely either the brake switch contacts or interlock solenoid.
