Question about 1999 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

Stuck in hold but no light

Just bought a 99 sportage and the pickup is terrible while in drive. I found normal pickup when placed in 2. I read through the owners manual and discovered the hold. Played with the hold button and notice no effect on 1st or indicator light. Seems like a nice car and can get by with starting out in 2 but can't be that hard to fix real problem.

What does the blinking "hold" light mean on a 1999 kia sportage?


this indicates that the gearbox is set/stuck in one gear .I presume this is an automatic ? try disconnecting the battery, leave for 5-10 minutes to allow the power to drain down from the electrical components , before you disconnect battery make sure you have the radio code if one is needed,re-attach the battery (only need to detach the earth lead from battery) try the vehicle, if this doesnt work get the OBD codes read and have them cleared ,this should fix it otherwise further diagnostic investigation will be required at a repair shop

Have a 03 matrix with a oilpump promblem I think,bought the car last week ran good next day was drive on highway notice oil lap on and noise from motor ,slowed down light went off.Next day change oil and...


Generally three things can turn the light on. First is the sending unit itself if it's going bad. Next is an obstruction of the pump pickup screen (usually hard carbon deposits). Third is worn engine bearings (usually rod bearings). Best way to find the problem is to have someone put a mechanical pressure gauge on the engine and read the actual pressure. If it's low you need to go into the engine to determine why. if it's normal, replace the sending unit. Senders aren't terribly expensive and you could just buy one and replace the one you have, providing the engine isn't tapping or knocking.

HOLD keeps coming on in my 99 kia sportage what does that mean


Look on the shifter lever,just bellow the push button. There is another push button there. That's the one you press or depress to keep the transmission on 3rd. gear. Just press it again and the hold light should come off.

Hold light flashing on dash.


We unhooked the battery and left it unhooked all night. This morning when he reconnected it and started it, it started right up and the hold light and our check engine light went off. We did press the hold button and it came on and went back off when we hit it again.

Green indicator light on 1998 kia sportage


That light sounds like a differential lock or 4-wheel drive. This is usually found in 4-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. Being the light is "GREEN" and not amber or red tells me that it's not an abnormal problem.

Look around your dashboard or gearshifter for a button labeled 4x4 HI, 4x4 LO, 4x2 HI. sport/off road button, or a second, smaller shifter. Switch them around a little, and if it is a 4x4 selector, be sure when you drive on paved roads to have it set to 4x2 HI. 4x4 HI should only be used if you get stuck to help you get out (snow/mud) and 4x4 LO is only for off road driving (trail blazing/rock climbing/4-wheeling/mud bogging,etc.)

Also, check for any switches labled "DIFF LOCK" or 'AXLE LOCK". In most cars a green light is normal operations.

I hope I could help you find a solution to your problem.
