check around on ebay for your year stereo, make sure the picture is for the same one, look to see if there are additional pictures. You could also look on a wiring diagram to find the ground wire and connector to the car body, clean it, reconnect and see if it works then.

The plastic dash parts pop out surrounding the radio. You have to be careful not to gouge the plastic with tool, perhaps several small flat screwdrivers. The snaps will not break when you yank it straight out. Then you'll see the hardware that holds radio. I think many Kia radios have planned obsolescence.
