Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
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.
