Answers :

The POWER light just means the transmission is\015\012in it's performance mode, there should be a button to switch from\015\012normal/economy mode to power mode, I don't have a sportage in front of\015\012me right now, I believe the button is on the dash between the steering\015\012wheel and center console area.

Check it (remember rated this help) Good luck.

My 2003 Matrix air bag light came on this morning. I've read some of the comments about this and heard it's very expensive. Does the light mean it won't work if I get in an accident or will it deploy on it's own while I am driving?

Then turned the car back on, made it to the train station, and didn't have a problem. Should I attempt a 400 mile trip on Sunday?


I would not recommend any trip until the car is repaired. The symbol in the dash means the car was in limp mode. It could be caused by the T/P sensor, this is the most likelt problem. ... 2004 Lincoln LS
