I'm driving an automatic gear car. At traffic light, do I put gear to neutral and pull handbrake, or do I continue to step on the brake. Any difference on either action.

Just keep your foot on the brake. It cannot do any damage, the auto box is designed for this

If you put in neutral you risk making a mistake and selecting reverse. or may not select gear inadvertantly on a hill and roll backwards.

    If gear is on neutral when stationary with handbrake pull, will it wear out or cause damange to the gear box or any parts of the car faster than when on drive with foot on brake.

    No makes no difference, the gear box is automatic and the clutch disengages at idle.
    Even if on a hill and the motor reving slightly to keep the car stationary, will take a very long time to cause wear. Auto gearboxes are usually extremely reliable and durable. If you have real concerns just make sure the auto is serviced and oil changed at factory recommended intervals. But in normal personal use they can last hundreds of thousands of kilometeres, usually the life of the car. There are exceptions of course and repairs can be necessary, but this can happen with a manual gearbox and clutch also.

What is best way for driving automatic car? To put gear on N during stop in traffic or keep D


I believe most car driving experts would tell you that there is no real benefit from placing the car in neutral while waiting at a stop light.
For me, the biggest draw back is that you might encounter a situation where you need to MOVE!!! With all the distracted drivers today (texting and such), you might look in your rearview mirror and see someone coming right at you who will not be able to stop in time. If your car is sitting in neutral, stepping on the gas will not move you out of the way in time.

If the fuse for the brake lights is good, I would suspect a broken wire or defective turn signal/multi function switch. The main brake light circuit usually runs through the signal switch assembly. The high mount brake light is on a seperate circuit

Gear light in Drive started to blink while was driving


This light is warning you that a fault has been detected in the electronically controlled transmission by the Transmission control module. You must get the system scanned for the fault code that was set in the modules memory when the light was turned on.

Gear shift has locked up


sounds like brake shift interlock solenoid is bad. try doing this emergency bypass. Turn key to off position, no lights on cluster. step on brake, pull shifter out of park to neutral. start car & drive away without putting it in park. see owner manul for better description.

How do i put my 1998 sportage in four wheel drive


If it is automatic transmission you must stop vehicle put it in neutral or "n" then put shifter that is indicates 2h 4h and 4L pull down to 4h if you are driving on highway or pull down then over and up to 4L if you are not going to be driving faster than 30mph.
If manual put in neutral also and do the same process as automatic there will be a light on dash board indicating that it is in 4wd also put transmission back to drive on automatic or shift to first gear on manual

1990 Suzuki Escudo 4 wheel drive


As far as I know the procedure should go something like this...

Stop the vehicle, engage the parking brake and if applicable, get out and turn the hubs on the front wheels from Free, to Lock.(You may not have these on a Suzuki, they may be auto-lockers)

Get back in the vehicle and put the transmission shift selector into Neutral.

If you have a manual transfer case, move the selector-shaft to 4x4-High, or 4x4-Low -- whichever is desired. Now, putting the vehicle in gear with the transfer case is sometimes somewhat difficult. As long as the vehicle's transmission is in neutral, don't worry, the gears inside the transfer case are big and beefy -- Don't be afraid to be rough -- Again as long as the transmission is in neutral. You may also have to disengage the parking brake and slightly let the vehicle roll forward or back with your foot-brake to get the Transfer case to lock into place.

Once 4x4 of the selected High, Or Low range is selected, usually indicated by the vehicle jerking slightly with a slightly loud clank/thud. Move the Transmission selector out of neutral into your desired gear (Drive if Automatic, if Manual, whichever gear you pull out from). and voila! You should now be in 4-Wheel-Drive.

To disengage 4-Wheel-Drive. Just reverse the steps.
