My radio/speakers aren't working. No sounds from the radio or my CDs, or even whenever I touch the screen it doesn't beep. I've checked all the settings on the screen and nothing has changed.

Asked by Nov 30, 2014 at 11:01 AM about the 2011 Kia Sportage

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is this something I can fix on my own or
does it need to go to a mechanic.

My only suggestion would be to pull the fuse to try and "reset" the unit. Other than that, see if there is a way to perform a reset to factory default by means of a button combination or something of the like.

Did you recently unhook the battery or did it go dead? A guy I used to work with had a Kia, and he had a nightmare of a time with his radio. Had to keep going to the dealer and getting a special code to reset it. It's an anti-theft feature. If power is ever lost or disconnected, the radio will not work unless you have the reset code.

Thanks guys! I have done nothing as far as the battery/fuse is concerned, it just stopped making any noises! I'll try these and hopefully that helps.
