SOURCE: 04 Kia Sorento stuck in 4WD Low

Usually the vehicle needs to be stopped and in Nuetral. Flip switch to 4X4 HIGH firts. It should come off. If it does not, put in drive and start moving slowly. Once in 4X4 HIGH you should have no problems going back and forth from 4X2 and 4X4 HIGH.

It's not necessary to use the 4X4 LOW setting in a snow storm in my opinion. I only use it if I'm off road going up a really steep grade or if I'm hauling something heavy up a hill. I only used it once because I was hauling a 26 foot pontoon boat out of the water. I strongly recommend using 4X4 in a snow storm or on slippery surfaces since you will get much better traction.

Good luck.

SOURCE: 2002 kia 4x4 wont go into 4 wheel drive

Hello
A VERY COMMON FAULT!
Kia us a dim design that works on air, so the light on the dash may light up green...mine does...but no 4x4.
Test one, look inside the engine bay,(2Litre petrol) on your left hand side, to the left of the actual engine is the solenoid device that "switches on" the vacuum to the front hubs. This is easier that you would think. If you look at the left side of the engine, there are two pipes coming out (left side) one is thick (break system. DONT touch) one is thinner and soft rubber. Follow this tube, it goes into a small black cannister which is a resvoir and one way valve...the tube then outputs into another device (solenoid) which has 2 wires on. The tube then splits under this in two. The test is simple, with the engine running, and 4 wheel drive engaged pull the tube apart after the solenoid. Put your finger there you should feel a nice strong ****. If it does **** put it back on. If it does not **** it needs to be removed and cleaned. This is simple to unbolt and all you do is pull the rubber bung of the bottom, and the two tubes and spray break cleaner inside. reassamble until you get to feel the vaccum.

test 2 Now look behind each wheel, you will see a thick hose wrapped in a spring, this is the break system, do not touch this. There is a thinner flexible hose attached behind the wheel, you will notice that these have no securing system just push fit. Remove each of the in turn and test for vacuum.

Leaks here are common and easy to fix.

The bad news if you have vacuum, and still no 4 wheel drive one or both front wheel hubs has a leak, and the bad news is, it needs a garage to fix it, and to replace the seal a £5 part you have to ruin a £100 part.

Test the vaccum, pray. Otherwise ask, doe you really need to spend £250 to sort this?

Good luck

Always make sure that whenever you engage into and out of 4x4, your gear lever is on N and not P.

so to reset it in now, switch on your engine with the hand brake up. set the gear lever to N, turn the knob to 4x4 Hi... wait 10 secs....switch it back to 2Hi...wait 10 secs and then return the gear lever to P and it should be ok.

Be careful there.. If you remove the Throttle Position Sensor TPS or the throttle Cable, the engine light will come on because there is a certain setting that needs to be done to ensure accurate emission control.

The 4 wheel low light is on but its not in 4 wheel drive but the trans will not change to overdrive


Are you sure it's not in 4 wheel or do you mean that it's just not switched to 4 wheel? Sounds like a bad indicator switch in the transfer case which is indicating 4 wheel low to the ecu which might not allow overdrive due to speed constraints of the 4 wheel low system.

2005 Kia Sorento - on dry pavement going forward in 4 wheel drive at slow speed turning left the rear wheel driver side seems to be trying to go reverse, can hear is catching or locking on the road,...


you shouldnt use 4x4 on dry road its made for pulling or snow mud etc type situations if you feel its ok then check tire size are they all the same size tires and the pressure all the same if you dont have a check eng light on then there is nothing wrong with the 4x4 but dont forget all wheel drive works with abs tcm if one wheel spins faster or slower then the rest it puts on the abs to slow it down or the trans shifts up to speed it up so there are a few things to check

My kia soernto 4x4 light flishing


I assume that the vehicle has a rotating knob on the left side of the dash for four wheel drive. It may have been put into 4 low by mistake. To get it out, start the vehicle and put it in drive, select 4 low on the 4 wheel drive selector, take your foot off the brake and get the vehicle rolling at a walking pace (1-2 m.p.h.) then move the selector to 4 high, stop the vehicle and move selector to 2 high
