2001 Kia Sportage - ''HOLD'' is flashing on my dash

The other day when I started my car all of sudden the word "Hold" was flashing on my dash right underneath were your "engineLight" would come on.
I thought maybe I hit the Hold button on the gear shift but that wasn't it because it is still shifting properly. I purchased the car used and it doesn't have a manual in it and I have never even heard of this. Does anyone know what this means? or if I am doing more damage to my car if I continue to drive with this flashing. Thanks

Have a mechanic use a code reader to determine the cause for the hold.

Code number p1624 is MIL Request Signal from TCM to ECM. which means malfunction indication light(MIL) is requesting a signal from your engine control module(ECM) or Transmission control module(TCM) i would reccomend u take it to the dealership to get it checked out.

SOURCE: hold keeps coming on in my 99 kia sportage what

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.

It ran out of petrol.We then put petrol in ,but now it wont start and the hold light is flashing on the dash


you can spray WD40 into the intake and see if it acts like it wants to start, if it does you may have air in the line, a fuel filter clogged or the fuel pump that is bad. Hope this helps Tim

My Kia backfires, sputters, bucks while this is going on the exhaust fumes are horrible. When starting my Kia at times it starts easily other times it starts, dies, starts dies when it does start a hold...


Did a little research, sounds like the hold light is linked to the transmission, used when needing higher rpms like when towing up long steep hills. The back fire and bad smell could be two things, either insufficient fuel, or bad spark. The spark plugs and wires need to be checked, and also the fuel pressure and flow rate. Is it back firing from under the hood or behind the car?

What is the hold light mean?


Assuming a first generation Sportage, sounds like a problem with the vehicle speed sensor on the back of the transfer case (4wd) or transmission extension housing (2wd).

Could be as simple as a corroded/broken wire, through to a malfunction in the sensor. Take it to Autozone and get the codes read and let us know what they are (to be absoluteluy sure...).

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.
