MY GEAR SOMETIMES JAMS AND FAILS TO SHIFT

2011 Kia Sportage • 12,000 miles

Hi there.I have a KIA Sportage 2011 and sometimes the shifting gear from P to R, N or D fails, it jams and I press the brakes hard too, after a few times then it shifts. Could you please tell me what is the problem?

Thi should be a problem with the shift interlock system. Check and ensure the brake lights are working at all times. Since vehicle is still under warranty, get the dealer to check it for you.

If the brake lights are functioning normally-Have the shift interlock control solenoid checked/tested-start here and let us know
