Kia Cadenza YG 2016-2024 Owners Manual / Driving your vehicle / Automatic transmission / Automatic transmission operation / Shift lock system

To shift the transmission from P (Park) into R (Reverse):

1.Depress and hold the brake pedal.

2.Start the engine or turn the ENGINE START/STOP button in the ON position.
