I have a 2000 Kia Sportage and when the hold button is flashing, the transmission is locked in low, by the gear shift is a button that says, hold, some how it got pushed, you might have a button on the dash that says, power and economy, I read in the manuel that it should be in economy for every day driving, if you are towing something, you can use power, and the hold, it lets the transmission, pull harder, and doesn't shift as fast.

If you have an automatic with a push button 4WD shifter, you must be completely stopped to shift in or out of 4LO. Hold your foot on the brake, put the transmission in neutral, and push the 4LO button. When the light stops flashing, you will be out of 4LO.

What is the hold light on the dash of the 2002 Kia Sportage?

http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=416844 I have a 1999 Kia Sportage and there is a HOLD button on the automatic shifter and it controls the transmission shifting for slippery or wet conditions. The manual says the HOLD will shift more smoothly for slippery conditions so that you don't loose traction. For practical purposes though, if you press the HOLD button while driving down the road the transmission will shift into the "Passing" gear and remain there until you slow down or release the HOLD button. I use the HOLD button when I want to control the shifting on corners and maintain higher RPM's on the engine. At speed on the expressway the HOLD button will shift down into the passing gear and this is nice on hills. Then when you want to unshift, release the HOLD button.

Why would your 2001 kia sportage not start it will turn over for a half second then dies as soon as this started happening the HOLD light in the gage cluster started flashing any help?

well I had a 1991 Mazda protege and when the hold light started flashing my transmission was going out. don't know if this will be of any help to you but i jut thought i would share that info. I have a 97 kia. try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. Might work after that. I have a 2000 Kia. On my gearshift (which is between the 2 front seats) there is ANOTHER button just under the gearshift button. When I press this button, my Kia is now in gear HOLD. This means that no matter how fast or slow my Kia may be going, it WILL NOT change gears. It will hold the last gear speed that the Kia was in when the HOLD button was pressed. Also, when in HOLD, I have a HOLD light that lights up in the gage cluster. Using this option is not recommended unless you REALLY know what you're doing as it is HAZERDOUS to your TRANSMISSION. I don' use mine much. Ussually on steep inclines. Peace...........
