Sounds 99% like the shifter position switch is bad. It is relatively easy to replace, you have to remove the battery and the battery tray. It's plug and play. Part is a bit less than $50. INSTALL THE OEM one. Buy it new in a hyundai/kia dealer, as it has been redesigned and early ones tend to fail in a lot of kia models.

As long as you don't mess with the nut in the arm that holds the cable there is no need to make any adjustments. The switch wiggles a bit over the transmission. First remove one of the bolts and note the position over the bolt center to reinstall the new one in the same position. Then, remove the arm from the switch, remove the remaining bolt that holds the switch, install the new one and you're good to go.



Just don't touch the B nut.
