SOURCE: hold keeps coming on in my 99 kia sportage what

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.

I have a 1993 1.3l ford fiesta mk3 I had a accident and airbage went off the car is ok just bumper and headlight but won't start now just turns over no damage to engine Is there a reset I need to do

Fuel reset button-or, Fuel Inertia Switch-cuts power to fuel pump in an accident to prevent fires starting. This switch should be in the trunk area, it is small, probably behind a trim piece or carpet, and to reset you just push the button in. Turn the key to on and you should hear the fuel pump buzz for a couple of seconds to prime the fuel system for starting. If the switch was tripped, it should now start.

Remote entry keyfob control doesn't work. Batteries are good.

Unfortunately theres not a lot you can do with them. If you are sure the battery is OK and the contacts are clean and it still doesn't work then a trip to the dealers to get it reprogrammed or replaced is in order.
Can you see any moisture inside? any chance you dropped it in the rain by accident?
If by any chance it has come into contact with moisture try drying it out somewhere warm but not hot as that may cause more damage.

What does the blinking "hold" light mean on a 1999 kia sportage?

this indicates that the gearbox is set/stuck in one gear .I presume this is an automatic ? try disconnecting the battery, leave for 5-10 minutes to allow the power to drain down from the electrical components , before you disconnect battery make sure you have the radio code if one is needed,re-attach the battery (only need to detach the earth lead from battery) try the vehicle, if this doesnt work get the OBD codes read and have them cleared ,this should fix it otherwise further diagnostic investigation will be required at a repair shop

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......

Hello. There is automatic fuel shut off switch. When the car is in an accident like you were. The switch trip and turn off the fuel. There should be a red button in the trunk on one of the side panels. If not, call the dealership and ask them were the auto fuel shut off button is located. Also, it might in your vehicle owner manual. GB...stewbison

Need to turn off dome light off. It stays on because door is slightly ajar after a accident.

There are little buttons on the side of the door. When the door shuts, it pushes the button closed. That is what turns off the light. Find the button and tape it with tape. Problem solved. DM, you could also find the fuse to turn it off to. Best wishes.
