Hi all!

I have had my 2003 kia sorento for about a year now, bought at 198,000km, it's now done nearly 327,000km. About 3 weeks ago during a 4 hour drive the O/D off light started flashing and the O'D button on the gear shift doesn't do anything. The car doesn't accelerate as well as it was before and takes a while to get up to speed, fun on the motorway and hills are a struggle now too. Wondering if anyone knows what could have brought this on and how to fix? It happened once before not long after I bought the car so we charged it's battery and it went back to normal, but charging the battery didn't help this time. It's booked in for a service and diagnostic next week anyway but curious to see if this is a common problem and what the causes have been for others? Thanks!

Try searching the forum - this I found pretty quickly via google (I had a good idea it existed!).
