This information can be found in your owner's manual. Don't have one get one. Dealer or salvage yard is a source. That just means that the transmission is in AT mode, press the "AT mode" button on the dash and it will magically disappear. what does AT mode do? it statr your xnsmission on second gear. why? to waist more gas. The HOLD(AT) mode is useful when you are driving on wet/slick paved roads keeps me from burning out when the car hops from first to second gear. I use 4WD when I am on gravel roads to do the same thing. Just don't use 4WD on pavement its not good for your SUV.

What does the at button on the dash of a 2001 Mitsubishi Montero do?

My 2000 has it too. Haven't tried it to see if a 'hold' light lights up, but the owner's manual also says something about this light. It's called an A/T mode change switch. In the book, they only repeated the info about the light. I have a 2001 Mits Montero Sport, and I have found that when you are climbing a grade, your 'automatic transmission' will automatically downshift when pressing the accelerator to the floor. If you don't want it to shift on it's own, use the A/T button to hold your transmission in the gear you want it. A hold light will illuminate on your dashboard underneath the speedometer if the A/T light has been depressed. Hope this helps!

2000 Mitsubishi montero sport a yellow HOLD light has come on and you do not know what that means also a red brake light has come on it doesn't need brake fluid Can you tell you what this means Thanks?

My 2001 Mitsu Monty Sport also had the HOLD light come on. What does it mean? I'm afraid to call Mitsu because every visit somehow costs >$1000! Press the button on the dashboard "A/T Mode" changeover switch, which switches the driving mode between Normal and Hold. From the Owner's Manual: "Select the "HOLD" mode when starting your vehicle on a road surface slippery from snow or the like, and the vehicle will start smoothly...other than "L" position, the vehicle starts in second gear." BTW, red brake light is probably the emergency brake light switch, which might just need cleaning or adjustment.
