Kia K900: Shift lock system - Automatic transmission operation - Automatic transmission (Shift by cable) - Driving your vehicle - KIA K900 2014-2019 Owner's ManualKia K900: Shift lock system

For your safety, the automatic transmission has a shift lock system which prevents shifting the transmission from P (Park) into R (Reverse) unless the brake pedal is depressed.

To shift the transmission from P (Park) into R (Reverse):

1. Depress and hold the brake pedal.

2. Start the engine or set the Engine Start/Stop Button to the ON position.

3. Move the shift lever.

If the brake pedal is repeatedly depressed and released with the shift lever in the P (Park) position, a chattering noise near the shift lever may be heard. This is a normal condition.

WARNING

Shifting from park

Always fully depress the brake pedal before and while shifting out of the P (Park) position into another position to help avoid inadvertent motion of the vehicle.
