My hold light wont turn off on a 2003 kia sportage. It keeps flashing I have unhooked the battery twice the first time it turned off the second time It didnt work. Anyone know how I can fix this probl

I am not sure what a hold light is, if you speaking of a break stopping light staying on, i would look at the break switch at the break pedal and pull up on your break pedal see if stop lights go out..if they do the switch should have adjustment..make sure lights work perfect after adjustment before going back out on the road, if you are hitting you engine starter to make engine start i would think its time for new starter and cylinoid and also check your batter cables make sure everything is tight and cables are good ...make sure the neg. cables has good clean ground conection to engine......

The shifter is locked and engine turns on but can not shift from park

1st, have someone step on brake pedal while you check to see if your brake lights are working, if yes proceed to step 2, if not check your brake light fuse(Left side of dash fuse#20- 10amp)IF fuse is good replace brake light switch on brake pedal. 2nd Step (brake lights ok) Turn key on engine off, press and release brake pedal several times slowly, listen for a click and and pulse on shifter handle. IF yes you have a shifter malfunction replace shifter assembly. IF no, inspect shift interlock solenoid and or relace solenoid and cable. You should see a small access cover about the size of a peanut around base faceplate of shifter assembly use small screwdriver and remove cover, use screw driver to press button underneath plate and release shifter into reverse and drive gears(this is manual overide) if you need to move vehicle in the meantime.

Reverse lights do not go on, bulbs not burnt, fuses are ok.what may be the issue

Ok, if you are sure you don't have a bad fuse, and the bulbs are good, and there hasn't been some work done recently that might be related, I would be looking for the back-up light switch. If you pick up is an automatic the it is usualy part of the neutral safety switch. If it is a manual transmission, there is a back up light switch that screws into the transmission case (usually near the shifter) It will have two wires and some kind of a plug the conect the wires to the switch. It may be a bad switch or a poor conection at the switch or broken/ bad wire between the swicth and the lights in the back. There are several way to go about narrowing this down but you first have to be able to get under the truck and you will need a test light or a multimeter to test for voltage. Once you locate the switch, one of the two wires will have voltage with the key on (engine off) the other wire will go out to the lights. If you don't have a test light you can jumper the two wires together (after you unplug it from the switch) with a paper clip or some other short piece of wire (don't worry,12 volts can't hurt you) If the lights come on with the switch by-passed you know the switch is bad, If not, back to square one. You need to find out if there is voltage at the switch. At this point you really need a test light or a multimeter. Test for 12 volts at the switch with the key on if not, the problem is "upstream" that is you are not getting power from the fuse panel, if you have power at the switch and you have done the "jumper wire" test, the problem is "down stream" that is between the switch and the lights. Also, before you do any of this, if you bought this truck used look and see if some shade tree previous owner added a plug for a trailer and hacked into the lighting harness near the rear of the truck and maybe made some poor conections.

Will not turn starter motor even though the rest of the car has power,(lights, radio,windows,ect,)

check the battery first, its possible to have power, but not enough to ingage the starter, also check shifter to make sure its in park good ? if all is good , the starter could be bad ? or the ignition switch located on the collum under the dash could be bad, also check for loose conections , good luk

New starter good batt. no voltage at the starter not even a click

Have to do some trouble-shooting first. With no click at all means their is no power comming from the key switch to the starter or no earth (-) to the starter.How to check power from the key switch. Look at your starter motor wiring their should be a main batery wire conected to it and more wires to the same conection. Then their should be one small wire connected to a different connector on the starter this is the power wire from the key switch. To check if this is the problem remove it then get a long piece of wire which will reach from the starter to the battery. Conect one end to the connector on the starter then touch the other end to the positive (+) pole of the battery. When you touch it to the battery you should hear a click and the starter will turn the engine. If it does then you will have to check the ignition system starting with the fuse then relay and key switch, It could also be a coroded connection or a broken wire in the wire loom, Check the earth if you get no click when you touch the wire to the battery. Follow the large wire from the (-) pole of the battery to the engine make sure all connections are tight and corosion free. To double check get a jumper cable clamp one to the - neg. of the battery and the other end to the engine (large bolt or metal) do not conect it to any pulleys (alternator etc.), This should get you sorted but if not let me know what you have tried and I will help further.

Shifter stuck in park,when engin is running. Able to move shifter if igniion swith is turned, but not to started

The problem sounds like it is the shifter interlock solenoid located on the steering column is not releasing the shifter lever. The shifter interlock is supposed to release the shifter lever when the ignition is in the run position and the brake pedal is pressed down, and I have found that about 90% of the time the problem is either a bad switch on the brake pedal lever, or it will be the wires that connect to the switch on the brake pedal lever, and I have found many times that the wire is actually broken right up inside of the wire connector and hanging on by the insulation making it appear to still be connected. Most vehicles use only one multi-function switch on the brake pedal lever to control functions like the brake lights and the cruise control, but Ford products are good at using two switches on the brake pedal lever. Be sure to check all of the wires to the switch(s) on the brake pedal lever very well for broken wires especially at the connectors to the switches. If you can use a power probe or a volt meter to check that power is flowing through the switch(s) properly, and you do find that the switches have power to them and through them when the brake pedal is pushed down, then the shifter interlock solenoid will either have a broken wire at it, or the shifter interlock solenoid is malfunctioning and will need to be replaced.

Will Not start in Park

The safety netural switch is loose there is a nut on the shift rail, if it is tight then the safety netural switch is bad and is held on with two bolts and takes 20 miutes to remove replace and adjust.
