Check that the actuator is moving the gear dog into position fully for complete engagement
it indicates that the connection is not complete and the pressure on the teeth is making if jump out of the engagement
have an accredited transmission shop check that adjustment
the symptoms indicate a failure to properly engage --adjustment--or worn teeth of the dog--- new parts -- or misalignment of the shafts --- new bearings and parts
have a proper diagnosis done first as replacement parts gets to be an expensive job

My kia soernto 4x4 light flishing


I assume that the vehicle has a rotating knob on the left side of the dash for four wheel drive. It may have been put into 4 low by mistake. To get it out, start the vehicle and put it in drive, select 4 low on the 4 wheel drive selector, take your foot off the brake and get the vehicle rolling at a walking pace (1-2 m.p.h.) then move the selector to 4 high, stop the vehicle and move selector to 2 high

04 Kia Sorento stuck in 4WD Low


The 1st time my 04 Sorento got stuck in 4WD low it was towed to dealership & they claimed it was the switch. Six months later, while on a camping trip, got stuck again. The local tow truck driver saved me hundreds of dollars in towing costs. Put it in reverse for at least 10-20 feet. That's it! He said that he found this to be a common problem. I later asked my dealership why they failed to mention this solution to me. They replied that they thought I knew! Spread to word!
