2002 Kia Spectra stuck gear shift

I have a 2002 Kia Spectra. The gear shift will not move out of park unless I override the safety lock, and once I do, I can't shift past reverse. It takes a tremendous amount of effort to move it to reverse, and I can't pull it any further than that.

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.

2005 Hyundai accent gear shift stuck in park after brake failure


Make sure the brake lights are coming on if not the release solenoid that unlocks park gets no power and will not release the shifter from park position. Also check the owner's manual for a possible way to override the solenoid lock.

The transmission shift interlock works from the brake light circuits. Check your brake lamps to see if they are working.. If not, fixing the brake lights will get your shifter working. Your Owner's Manual will tell you how to "override" the shift lock so you can get your vehicle in for service.

Our Kia Spectra was not ran for 2 weeks-when we went to turn on-the gear shift was extremely tight and we used force to move into reverse. We turned the engine off and then when we tried to restart-engine...


this is very common with these cars the shift shaft goes through the aluminum case below the neutral safety switch then is exposed 3 inches befofre it goes into the transmission to shift the case is supposed to be a guide this corrodes you need to use a silicone based lubricant to free it up. Have some one spray under the switch while you hold the brake (key on engine off) and move the shifter from park to first approximately 2 min or thirty times

Shifting gear(Acura Integra 95) gets stuck on P.


The switch should lock the shifter in park . And you should need a key to release it. It is a child safe safety that has been installed since the 70's on all US sold auto's.
