Question about 2001 Kia Sephia
I saw a 1999 sephia do this. This car had been sitting for quite some time. Maybe six to eight months. I had to take the shift cable off the transmission and lube the shaft with WD or Blaster. Then take a pair of pliers and easily and slowly move the shift lever back and forth until the it frees up. If it's not the problem you'll know immediately as the linkage will move easily. Make sure you set the parking brake and trig the wheels as the car will come out of gear when you move the linkage and could possibly roll and cause you to be injured. When you take the shift cablee off the linkage at the transmission, try to move the shifter to see if the cable's the problem. One more thing, and I'm not being a smart alec. I just like to touch all the bases. Are you stepping on the brake when you try to shift out of park? I believe these cars are built that way.

Next to the shifter is a small cover,take this cover off and push in with your key or screw driver,this should let you take it out of park.
