Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
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.

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.
