Default 02 Sportage is stuck in park after battery died.

Battery died and couldn't jump start it. Had to remove little tab next to stick shift and stick in key to get car to nuetral so AAA could load it for tow. Replaced battery and a few fuses but car is still stuck in park. Everything else works but can't get it out of park without removing tab and inserting key. Is there some type of computer reset or something that I need to do?
HELP
Thanks

On the 2000 sporty there are (3) three fuses and all will effect the "Shift Interlock Circuit" system.

They are:
Radio Fuse 15A
Turn Fuse 10A
Stop Fuse 15A

All located in the interior fuse panel, left side kick panel on the 2000 sporty.

The A/T Shift Interlock Control Module on mine is located under the Radio in the center console all the way to the back by the ventilation air box. I have heard on some it is on right side of the dash and you have to remove the glove box to get to it. (LHD models)

There are 2 switches that effect this system, the brake pedal switch and there is a park position switch below the center console shifter. The signal that comes from the brake switch also goes to the brake lamps, so if you do not have brake lamps find the fuse labeled "STOP" and see if it is blown.

If you're able to remove the key from the ignition when the shifter is in park then that part of the circuit is working. Once you are in any position but Park position, you should not be able to remove the key from the ignition switch, unless someone has disabled that safety solenoid.

Hope this helps, not sure how many changes they might have made from the 2000 to 2002 models. Good Luck!

fishinbuddy,

That is a big YES for you. From what I know the 1998 to 2001 were very much the same electrically, just minor cosmetic changed done for each model year.

If you can follow a wiring diagram this is how the safety shift interlock is connected on your sporty. I tried to upload a larger version of the diagram but this site will not allow it.

If you want to get a complete wiring diagram for your car check this site out, it is were the above image came from.

I have a 96 Kia Sportage and I have the same problem. At first it was fairly easy to get it to come out of park by insert a key in the hole, but the more we have done this the harder it has become now. It is constantly stuck in park and the keys will only go back as far as accessory mode. You can not completely remove the keys. I have been having to leave it parked in neutral and use the emergency brake. It is quite aggrevating especially when you go out somewhat and forget that it gets stuck in park and after you put it in park it takes nearly over an hour to keep working with it to get it to release. Do you have any suggestions for me. I have about to totally give up on this situation. My battery has gone dead so many times and I ended up having to buy a new one. I have only had the battery 3 days and this morning it was back dead again. Please help!

There is a small micro switch underneath the shifter cover it allows the solinoid in the key lock to diengage. Manually move this micro switch and listen for a click in sterring colum . If none Get wiring diagram from KIATECH on line and trace .r
