Having problems with your 2011 Kia Sorento ?

Problem starting have a smart key and cannot get car started....tried putting the smart key in the console receptacle, but still will not start. Battery seems to be fine; think it has to do with security system as the brake is stiff... had this issue before and they replaced some chip or sensor that locks the brake to prevent starting... KIA service engineer told me how to get it started, but can't remember...now it's Sunday and they are not open...:-(
