Your Montero Sport 2001 has a light on that says HOLD what does this mean?
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.
