Hi all. Anyone know the location of the neutral safety switch on a 2014 KIA Rio LX? Automatic transmission. Amazingly, I can’t find anything in internet or YouTube.

Car will only start In neutral, so pretty sure that’s it. I am also going to replace the crankshaft position sensor.

Thanks everyone.

WAIT!
If the problem is the Crankshaft Position Sensor, it would throw a code/CEL.

Often there is an adjustment you can make on the Transmission Range Finder/Sensor, which is usually mounted on the front of the tranny(I can't see the schematic very well). It may just need to be unscrewed(2 screws) and turned(CW/CCW) about 1/8". The holes should be oval for this adjustment. It's probably just out of position a tiny bit.

Try this first.
