The POWER light just means the transmission is in it's performance mode, there should be a button to switch from normal/economy mode to power mode, I don't have a sportage in front of me right now, I believe the button is on the dash between the steering wheel and center console area.

Check it (remember rated this help) Good luck.

What does it mean when the green pwr light comes on?


I assume you mean the "ect power " light. This means the trans computer will hold each gear a little longer before changing down. It is turned on and off by a button on the console

What does ECT PWR green light on dash mean? It just popped up at 160k


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

The ECT PWR light is on because someone has inadvertantly bumped the switch. Look on the console, by the shifter, or on the dash for a switch labeled ECT. Turn it off, and the light will go out.

The ECT PWR mode, when activated, increases the time that the transmission shifts up thru the gears. Without the mode selected, the first shift would be at 18-20 mph. With the mode selected, the first shift would be 20-22 mph. This mode basically allows the shift to occur later, and is normally used when you are towing something, or if you have a large load of cargo in the car.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance. Have a great day.

PWR light is on dash, what does this mean ?


This light usually indicates that you have selected the power option for your transmission shift pattern(normal or pwr)

There is a button on the center console or the shifter that selects pwr or normal trany shifting, if pressing the button again does not change the light than the button or wiring may be defective and require further diagnosing

Dash board light came on, says ETC PWR?


"ETC PWR" means the "power mode" switch on the tranny is on. this lets the tranny rev above 3000 RPM, and is normal. look for a button near the center console and punch it. as for running rough, have someone check to make sure a coule of wires didn't get switched. also, you shoulda changed the plugs, too.

Green light ext pwr


The ECT/power light is controlled by the ECT switch on the console. WHat it does is stretches the shift point from 1-2 and 2-3 when you are carrying a large load, or towing something. For maximum fuel economy, the light should be switched off.
