Best Answer

Disconnect the battery for about 5 min and then try it. Should work after that.

The hold flashing light means the transmission is locked in a perticular gear, so to disengage it press the button just below the shifter knob on the left side of the shifter.

If this does not work disconnecting battery will NOT solve your problem .you will have to purchase a transmission computer box located under drivers side of dashboard.Take the one with you to the junk yard to match it up by the #s on the box. Should run about $ 100.00,at Kia $950.00.

What will cause the check engine light to flash on a 1997 suburban?

The control module is trying to tell you something is wrong. If the light is steadily flashing you need to drive it to a dealer pronto. They will read any codes and hopefully be able to tell you what's wrong. A steady light is just a warning that something needs fixed but not right away. A flashing light needs fixed now.

What does a flashing yellow traffic signal mean?

means nothing Wrong! It means caution. Something requires extra attention. At an intersection, a flashing circular yellow means to take extra caution, and watch for traffic on the cross road (which has a flashing red light). A flashing red light is the same as a stop sign. A flashing yellow arrow means you ma turn in the direction of the arrow, but you must yield to conflicting traffic. If the flashing yellow light is not at an intersection, it either calls attention to a road hazard on an accompanying sign, or indicates that a special regulation indicated on the sign is in effect (School speed limit 20 when flashing).

Flashing overdrive light, or one that goes out and won't come back on means you need to have your transmission checked. I believe in a 99 they have a computer hook up they can use to see if they can figure out what is wrong with the transmission.
