Bluetooth not responding in 2010 kia forte?

Asked by Nov 01, 2014 at 05:25 PM about the 2010 Kia Forte EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Bluetooth isn't working in my car. It's not the phone, when i press anything, pair,
Bluetooth, the display reads "listening" but there is no 'beep' that would usually occur.
And it doesn't respond to anything I say. This is a recent issue, happened about 2 weeks
ago and is still an issue. So is there anyway I can fix this without having to bring the
vehicle in? It isn't discoverable on any phone device either.

Disconnect the battery for 10 min. If that dosent work u need a new module


Make sure you have the security code for the radio first

It's stopped within the past 2 weeks. Security is not an issue. But I will try the battery


No some radios require a code after it has lost power


I have the same car year and make and same issue but I also have a different issue my radio the stereo is completely died no power what so ever and the USB not working as well it's been like this for a minute now I don't have radio to know any new music any news sad thing it's been like this for one year a few.months I don't know.what to do I'm on a extremely tight budget taking it to a kia dealer is way too much I would love to fix it myself just need some help on doing so
