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...........

How do you prevent rain from entering at the top of the mast?

There is a plastic boot with a rubber piece that surrounds the pipe for this. If it's an existing installation you won't be able to do this unless you have utility power disconnected. However, you can get some flashing and tar and seal the leak by installing the flashing under the shingles with liberal amounts of tar, and sealing the upper part of the flashing to the mast with tar as well. If you don't know how to install flashing, a simple google search or talk with someone at home depot should get you started.

Why are the gauges of my 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 all dead?

I had the same problem with my 1998 Dodge Ram 1500. I reseated the instrument cluster and it started working. The whole thing took me 15 minutes and I am not a mechanic. I believe that I removed three screws to enable me to remove the plastic which covers the instrument cluster. I can't remember how many screws hold the cluster down but once you remove them pull the cluster out. It is simply plugged in, and those connections are your problem.
