Question about 2000 Kia Spectra
2000 Kia Spectra (automatic) - Started the car, but I could not get the car into gear. So I FORCED the gear shift selector to move, but the car would still not go into gear. Now I have not been able to start the car since. Battery is new and charged. Starter was removed, tested and still works. By forcing the gear shift selector, could I have messed up something which prevents me from starting the car? (Fuses are all good.)
Yes yes yes there s a newtral parking switch in those and you eitho bent or broke it off try puting the car in newtral not newtral you can see just go by feel shift the car into l1 try it then l2 try it
then d try it heck even try reverse and newtral
failing that you need a hays manual and a lot of time to crall arround eithor under your dash or hood depending what the book says
happy hunting and good luck
btw thats why all cars come with a parking or hand break dont be afraid to use it b4 you put your car in park it will save you a lot of problems in your tranny like bent parking pins from some moron bumping your car or just a hill or incline.
