SOURCE: four wheel drive wont engage

I fought with this problem every year since I had the Sportage. And it was so frustrating to find out just when you really needed it, that you did not have 4-wheel drive. I replaced the hubs with manual hubs and I wish I would have done it at the beginning. They work great and are 100% reliable. Bottom line.. the vacuum hubs were a great idea that just plain did not work reliably. Save yourself alot of grief and money and just replace the hubs. Less than $200 including paying someone to put then on and I now can rely on my Sportage when I need it.

SOURCE: 2003 kia sportage 2l wont engage four wheel drive

This is a long/hard one to answer as a few things can cause this. First, check the vacuum lines running from the engine down to the front axles for cracks, and make sure you have vacuum to the axle hub. Second, remove and inspect the front wheel bearings, they should be set to proper preload and there should be no signs of water in the hub. And last if there is water in the hub, that most likely means there is rust on the front axle, and the pitting caused by the rust will not allow vacuum to build up and ingage the four wheel drive. the later requires a new front hub kit $$$.

I don't know how to get my 2001 kia sportage into four wheel drive


On small shift behinde gear lever there is 3 settings. H4 = 4 wheel drive high range, L4 = 4 wheel drive low range, h2 = 2 wheel drive high range. as soon as jou engage to 4 wheel drive a green light on the dash board will appear to indicate that the car is in 4 wheel drive. if not check fuse - check air pipes at front wheels.

Green indicator light on 1998 kia sportage


That light sounds like a differential lock or 4-wheel drive. This is usually found in 4-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. Being the light is "GREEN" and not amber or red tells me that it's not an abnormal problem.

Look around your dashboard or gearshifter for a button labeled 4x4 HI, 4x4 LO, 4x2 HI. sport/off road button, or a second, smaller shifter. Switch them around a little, and if it is a 4x4 selector, be sure when you drive on paved roads to have it set to 4x2 HI. 4x4 HI should only be used if you get stuck to help you get out (snow/mud) and 4x4 LO is only for off road driving (trail blazing/rock climbing/4-wheeling/mud bogging,etc.)

Also, check for any switches labled "DIFF LOCK" or 'AXLE LOCK". In most cars a green light is normal operations.

I hope I could help you find a solution to your problem.

FWD not working


There is an electronic switch underneath in the linkage I believe that becomes corroded if not used frequently on my 2001 Montero Sport. At the start of each Winter season, I have to work the 4X4 lever to get the green light on. I then drive around holding the lever in position to keep the light on. I shift in and out several times as well. After the first time out in 4X4, it comes on and stays on the rest of the season. You are correct about the green 4X4 indicator light. If it is not on, you are not in 4 wheel drive
