I have a customer that bought a LX Kia Forte, the base model as stock as they come. The ECO light has come on in her car, she has sent me pictures so I can confirm that it is true.
There is no "Drive Mode" or "Active eco" button.

Any experienced this problem or found a solution?

Ty for the help but no luck. I have no buttons or switches to turn on or off. Even took it to the car dealer and no one there could figure it out. I didn't know i had this feature till the light came on. Its drivable and wont hurt being on it drives me crazy not knowing how or what made it turn on and not knowing how to shut it off. Dealer had looked at it for 2 hrs and are just as puzzled. 😂😂

Tried that no luck. Read both mauals one said it can change if you drive it harder.the more you are on the gas it would go into normal or sport mode. The eaiser you drive it would go into eco mode. So I'm gonna drive it a little harder and see if it changes.
