SOURCE: 2002 Kia Spectra stuck gear shift

Sounds like you need a new shifter assembly, or the brake switch. Most likely will be the shifter though if you can move it out of park with the override.

Sorry, sounds like a snapped cam belt. Get out the wallet because there will probably be some valve/cylinder head damage.
