• It is one of two things, first I believe it is the switchs in the shift lever they are prone to failure, a key sign is the Light on the dashboard will not show reverse, or whichever gear the switch is bad on, sometimes the lights will be dim, the switch is bad and does not pass current, it passes via the dash then back to the transmission, and the tranny does not have enough voltage to see whats going on. The Kia does also have a magnet in the fluid reservoir underneath, if enough metal builds up it shorts, causes an engine light fault until the pan is dropped filter is changed, and the metal is removed. I have experianced both.
