Question about 2000 Kia Sephia

1 Answer

00' Kia Sephia LS not shifting past 1st gear

Check engine & O/D Off light stay on. Disconnected battery for 24hrs, then reconnected. Lights were off but only for a little while. When driving there's a hard shift, then just a straining sound is the only way I know to describe it. Car does not shift anymore after that. Replaced the speed sensor and that did not fix the situation. Took car to AutoZone for a "free diagnostic check". No major problems, just the 2nd & 4th gear ratio showing trouble. Informed that this could be due to improper fluid level. Checked transmission fluid level and it was high and the fluid was black. How do I drain the fluid out?

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STAYS ON


Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery for 5 mins, then reconnect it, the light will go out, HOWEVER if there is a problem it will light up again until you fix the problem that is causing it light up.

My kia is stuck in park,


Check to see if the brake lights go on. also listen for a click sound in the shift lever location when you hit the brake pedal. if neither one of these things are occuring then you have a brake light switch problem. you need to replace that and it should all work.

Check engine light on and O/D OFF light flashing


I was facing a similar problem when I bought my car, I think the "check engine" lit due to a problem with shifting control system which obviously made the "O/D-off" flashes.The best solution in this case is to replace the malfunctioning shifting control system (a closed steel box that works like a computer).This is what I did and since then it's running perfectly.
