Gonna say that your internal amp blew. Did you recently change out the battery or disconnect it for any reason? I know on some vehicles it locks out the stereo and you have to input a code for it to work again. It's a pain in the neck safety feature to make the stereo useless if stolen. Check you owners manual if you did disconnect power.

There should be a small pin hole near the CD player, you can take a small pin or paperclip put it in the hole push for a few seconds and it should reset the system. This appears to be a common problem for that radio. Here is a link to the Tucson forum:

Thank you! I also followed your suggestion, and it worked on my 2012 Tucson. I was devastated when I suddenly didn't have any sound the other day, and I thought I would have to spend a lot of money to get it fixed. You saved me a lot of time and trouble! I'm glad I looked online first.

On the Tucson w/nav system, the reset is down near the "Phone" button. Actually, it's not a small hole; it's a small recessed button. Just a tip here though. If your radio is working but no sound, copy down all your station settings because resetting will erase your stations.... just saying.

Thanks a lot. Pushing the pin reset fixed it for me on my 2011 Tucson w/nav system. I have had the no sound before however that time it was fixed after I turned the ignition off and on again. That method did not work this time.

My 2011 Tucson w/Nav is also inaudible! I checked the fuses and they test as working. I pushed the reset button and it didn't work for me! Any other suggestions? Carol


Hi, Carol, I discovered that you have to push and hold the reset button until the radio turns off. The reset is located just below the button for the phone. My radio came back on instantly after. Hope this helps.
