    Mine has also done this - it also kicked out the cruise control. Dealer replaced burnt out lamp located in the steering column, but it has had to be done several times over the years.

HOLD keeps coming on in my 99 kia sportage what does that mean


Look on the shifter lever,just bellow the push button. There is another push button there. That's the one you press or depress to keep the transmission on 3rd. gear. Just press it again and the hold light should come off.

Kia sportage 4wd won't engage, unrelated to vaccum hubs


a quick fix to solve the problem with the 4wd not working on the sportage is fitst check the vacume soionoid is working lockated by the suspention turet on theL/H side of the engine bay, then, chech hoses going to the hub, if there is still a vacume leek from the hub remove the 6 bolts from the outer hub locker place in vice remove the circlip, remove the spring, remove the spline gear then take the spring and swap it around so that it gose under the gear so that it is in conatant mesh/ lock, build back up and fit, it means the front axle will be live all the time but you will still be able to select 2 /4wd,,

What is the hold light mean?


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 sensor. Take it to Autozone and get the codes read and let us know what they are (to be absoluteluy sure...).

Cruise control will not 'set' on '05 kia sportage


Check the brake lighf bulbs. If even one is burnt out, it throws the sensors.

I have a Kia sportage 2006 and the cruise control is not working it comes on but will not set. i also have found that my ESP light is coming on after 5 miles.


The ESP was a recall,the dealer will honor that if you havent had it done.The cruise I had the same problem replaced it and its starting to go bad again. I think soon we will find it to be a recurring problem in all sportages.
