About Kia Neutral Safety Switch
If your car uses an automatic transmission, then you have to be thankful that it's got a Kia neutral safety switch. That's because this switch prevents your engine from firing up unless your shift selector is in the neutral or park position. When your car is in the forward or reverse gear, this Kia neutral safety switch is then put in the "open" position, preventing any current from activating the starter solenoid. Generally reliable, the Kia neutral safety switch isn't a component that breaks down easily-unless of course it's misadjusted or heavily-damaged.
