Check your fuses, If you have a amplifier that fuse in particular

Just had the same issue today in our 2013 Sportage. There's a reset button to the right of the CD slot. Use a small point tip to hit the reset button & should get your sound back.

Thank you so much for this post. My 2013 Sportage had the same issue this morning - NO sound. Long drive into work with no radio. I found your post and went out and tried it and my radio sound is back!!!! Thanks bunches.

My 2013 Sportage also has no sound, the radio resets itself and clock reset themselves. Fuses were checked and that's not the issue. King Kia in Gaithersburg, MD ordered a radio two weeks ago because they think that's the answer. Unfortunately radios are on back order and King Kia has no idea when it will arrive. :-(

I took my 2011 Kia Sportage to the dealer due to no sound and they told me I needed a new radio. Tried the reset button today and my sound is back. Why does the Kia dealership not know this.

Same think happened today to my 2014 Sorento. Went out to vehicle and located the tiny hole to the right of the CD player, used a tiny Allen wrench to press reset and BAM my radio is back in business. Thanks a bunch for the help. Good luck to all!!!!!!!!!!

Hit the reset button but nothing. Attempting to find an amp since the speakers check out. Any suggestions on replacing the amp?

Wow the reset button really worked. Thank you for that info. I really didn't want to take it to the dealers and they charge me.


hi 2012 sportage. where is the reset button? can't find on the radio itself.

Tee N'Cole Rock

Debby is your radio with navigation or do you have the UVO?


No nav. Standard radio. What is uvo?

Tee N'Cole Rock

Your right Debby, I did not see a reset button on the standard radio either. UVO is the next upgraded radio in the Kia's. Does a little more stuff, such as touch screen and something called Jukebox. But reading from another forums, they were saying to disconnect your battery cables front under the hood for at least a minute. Reconnect and that should reset basically the whole car. Try that step and see what happens.


Had same problem, reset worked. Thanks, never even knew that was a reset button. Only lost radio presets, expected to lose addresses programmed into GPS too.
