    If this vehicle is still under warranty, call the dealership and have them pick the car up and repair it. This should not be your problem.

    Check to see if your brake lights are working. There are two fuses that are required for this system to operate, the Module Ign1 (ignition) fuse and the ATM K/Lock (keylock) fuse, both in the fuse block, underdash left hand side. Almost anything beyond that will require a technician with a full scan tool.

    Had the same problem with a 2011 sportage . Kia wanted $550+ to swap out the shifter assembly!... (no thanks) Pulled the console off to see how it works and found a little contact switch (very small piece of metal with 2 wires connected) pushed the switch part, heard a small click and keys came right out! To fix this I very slightly bent the metal tab towards the prong on the shifter that pushes it. Works great now! Hope this might help.
