Hold light flashing on dash.

I own a 99 KIA Sportage 4WD 4DR and my hold light is flashing on the dash now. The nearest dealership is an hour away and I don't know if I should drive it there like it is or how can I get the light to go off?

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.

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.

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...).
