Default bluetooth not working

Hello. I have a 2009 Kia Sorento. My factory stereo bluetooth was working up till last week. my phone is not recognizing 'Kia Bluetooth". I had my brother to pair his phone and had no luck either. I,ve waited for a while and the stereo still says "pairing" Any way to solve this?

At the risk of losing all your radio settings, I would start by disabling power to the radio (either go all out and remove the (-) cable from the battery for a few hours, or remove the fuses associated with the radio, specifically the memory (when powered down)).

If that doesn't work and you're sure the radio has been cleared, It may require a trip into a [gasp] dealer to see if there is updated radio firmware.
