Question: Location of Inhibitor Switch on 2008 Kia Sorento


#1

Hello friends,

I am unable to find anyone who can tell me for certain where the Neutral Start Switch is located on my 2008 Kia Sorento. This is a rear wheel drive vehicle, which is not covered in my shop manual. Every place I call, including the dealership, says it is either inside the transmission or mounted outside of it. Well, there’s a pretty BIG difference between those two scenarios! Can anybody answer this for sure?

From the looks of the switch, I would say it’s in the center console and attached to the shift lever itself
