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.

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.

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

No nav. Standard radio. What is uvo?

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.

My 2012 Kia Sportage doesn't have the reset button. I disconnected the battery, but only the clock lost 3 minutes. Nothing was reset. Should I have disconnected for a longer period? Any other way to reset the radio? Thomas

I have been having the sound problem since Saturday night. I thought it was just my system warming up from the cold since I drove for hardly a minute but then then Sunday it worked fine but not today, Monday, I have nothing. I tried factory reset I tried the little button nothing. The manual has no help and something I've noticed is it always goes back to the same radio station when I turn it on. But no sound for the radio, my aux, my jukebox, or my CD's. nothing's working and I'm starting to get frustrated. Does anyone know something I can do short of going to my dealership?

Did you change your battery or disconnect it recently?

No everything was working fine and then it went kaput

Shane Lawson

After I hit the reset button, this later started to happen again and then everything "went kaput". Took it back to Kia service dept., and he informed me that the amplifier got fried and would need to be replaced. Got it replaced and everything has been back to normal for the last 2 years. I will warn you, though, that this replacement is costly since it's a factory amp. I did find some of these factory amps on Amazon (and E-Bay) and they were MUCH cheaper than expected.

Luckily had extra insurance that covered the cost for amp replacement. Found my bill, and it said almost $500 for the amp and another $200 - $300 for labor for installation.....this was AT the dealer btw.

I really think they need to recall all of their radios if this is a constant problem that has been going on for years. It makes absolutely no sense why the radios are doing this. I think if I have another problem, I'm just gonna replace the whole radio from some where else.
