I think she pressed the button on the side of the shifter by accident. If she presses it again, it should go off.

Hello,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

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 speed sensor.It is located on the transmission extension housing, right at the back of the transmission. It should be the only electrical connection in that area so not to difficult to pick.

Before you go replacing it, try to clean the electrical contacts in the plug and socket by unplugging/replugging the connector together a few times. Area under there is subject to a lot of road dirt/salt/corrosion.

God Bless

2001 KIA sportage down shifting by itself and the hold light keeps blinking what could be wrong


a blinking hold light means the transmission control sensor is telling the engine cntrol sensor that something is wrong. Usually it is nothing too serious, mine has been doing it on and off for years, go to a transmission shop that offers free or cheap diagnosis, get several opinios before spending a lot of money

Sportag 2001 120000 km - drink 6 km for 1 liter ? what i have to chek ? miko


If there is a serious loss of power, look at the exhaust manifold. There should be a flange where the exhaust expands out. This is the "pre cat" and has tendency to plug and create fuel consumption issues and power issues. What else is going on with it?

Hold light flashing on dash.


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.
