My 2005 kia sorento is stuck in low range will shift from 2wheel to 4wheel yet stuck in low

Asked by Aug 13, 2015 at 05:38 PM about the 2005 Kia Sorento EX 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

795

Here's what I found on the FixYa forums: The 1st time my 04 Sorento got stuck in 4WD low it was towed to dealership & they claimed it was the switch. Six months later, while on a camping trip, got stuck again. The local tow truck driver saved me hundreds of dollars in towing costs. Put it in reverse for at least 10-20 feet. That's it! He said that he found this to be a common problem. I later asked my dealership why they failed to mention this solution to me. They replied that they thought I knew! Spread to word!
