I have 2002 kia sedona and having problem with gear shifting it gets stuck in 1 gear i press on gas untill rpm reaches 4000 then change then goes to second gear in the moring does not do it but i feel...

there is something wrong with your SYNCRONIZER. it is a device located inside your transmission that is responsible for smooth gear shifting at any rpm's. i have not yet heard of syncronizer repair, so it possibly means that you just need to have it replaced. this is not a DIY job. have a transmission mechanic fix your problem

How to move to neutral when the battery is dead

Nearly all modern cars with a column, console or floor-mounted shift knob are equiped with a shifter level lock release button. Look for a small hole or plastic plug, usually to the right side of the shift lever or on rare occassions above or below the shift knob. It should be just large enough to stick the ignition key into the hole and push on the release button. While holding the release button with one hand, have foot on the brake or parking brake set and gently bress the shift knob button and move to neutral. I spent two years working for ADT Automotive at Mid-America Auto Auction and out of over a quarter million automatic transmision cars I have seen, nearly all have this feature.

try wiggling the gear shift in park and turn your key at the same time, could be that the cable has stretched, push it into park a little harder and see if this helps

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.
