Question about 2006 Kia Rio

Open Question

2006 kia rio, how to turn overdrive on? I spilled some soda and it went into the middle compartment where you shift gears. I have an automatic. Since then my O/D OFF light has come on. How do I fix my car so i can put it into overdrive again. Im wasting a lot of gas the way it is now. Can anyone help?

This is the same information that us Kia techs use to diagnose vehicles. Lots of useful information. For your particular vehicle, lookup a 2003 for the timing belt information. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Where is the overdrive button in a 2004 KIA Rio


Look on the gear shift just below the handle, it is just below the thumb button. It will be easy to feel but can be harder to see.

I have a 1997 Kia Sportage (#KNAJA5278VA787759). The automatic transmission used to not shift into overdrive at 60 km/hr, but only after the engine was warm--after about 5 km of driving. The problem...


I had a simular problem.
Ended up changing the themastat and the gears changed into overdrive when the temp. got to normal running.
Be carefull that you get right thermastat though. You want one that reaches the normal working Temp as soon as possable.
Hope this helps.

The stick shift has a coke spill and it is a little hard to shift since, How to I open the shift box


since you or someone spilled soda pop on your shifter you could lift the boot cover and unscrew the boot.to gain access to this area. however this could be a real pain in the !!! what i would try first is to get a solution of hot soapy water and pour it slowwly or repeatedly down the shifter hole to wash out the soda pop. this all goes right out onto the ground.

Transmission problems


This is what my 04 Kia Rio is doing exactly. I was told that the TCM and Shift Solenoid "C" is faulty. Am trying to figure out how to go about fixing that without paying more than the car is worth. My tech checked with the local Kia dealership and the TCM new is I think around $700. You also have to buy the program to tell this high dollar part what to do and that is right at $100. I have found that sometimes if I let the car warm up and then keep hitting the overdrive button, eventually it starts shifting correctly.
