  1. Replacing the antenna

    4G (2018- Present) Rio
    Hey all, Is it possible to swap out the default '18 Rio antenna with a sleek shark fin one, like this or this? What part would you recommend for the '18 Rio sedan? What size of the base does ours take? -gg

    4G 2016-2018+ Sportage
    I have a 2017 Kia Sportage. My radio has gone willy. Sometimes, there is a blank, black screen but I cant still hear the radio and change stations using the controls (not the touchscreen). Other times, the display flickers in and out, but the radio still works. Last night, the radio didn't...
  4. Radio not working and beeping noise

    1G (2001-2005) Rio
    Probably a super simple question but... Can someone tell me what exact part I need to connect a Pioneer AVH-280BT radio to an 02 rio? Note, I have just the radio and not the radio wiring harness. Current radio in the rio is factory. Thanks!
  5. Radio does not switch off

    Kia Soul Forum
    I have a 2012 Soul, it has 130 000 kms on the clock. When I switch off the ignition and take out the key, the radio stays on and the beeping sound to remind you that the key is in the ignition keeps going. The key remote buttons do not work when this happens. The central locking also does not...
  6. Optima 2017 DAB Signal disappeared

    4G (2011+) Optima
    So I brought my 2017 Optima GT LineS 2 years ago and all good. Now all of a sudden the DAB radio has stopped working. I can't get a signal anywhere, sometimes is does drop in but only very briefly. The AM radio works just fine and everything else is working just fine. I know it must be a radio...
  7. Intermittent radio / console

    3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    I have a 2012 LX model. The whole console including the radio shuts off intermittently after some amount driving, though it is always okay on a cold start. The battery and radio fuses have been checked and seem okay. It does indeed shut off more frequently with slopes or bumps, leading me to...

    Kia Carens & Rondo Forum
    Hi, I'm a proud new Rondo owner. I'm trying to install a pioneer head unit in my 2009 Kia Rondo. I've already got the slot adapter so I can install a standard double DIN radio, but my issue now is that I can't seem to find an accurate wiring diagram for 2009 Kia Rondo factory radio harness...
  9. 2014 Rondo Random Electrical Issues

    Kia Carens & Rondo Forum
    Often the radio will completely turn off and display no time. Then it will come back on reset to 12:00. If you shut the car off when this happens, the windshield wipers turn. If you pull the wiper fuse, the wipers will stop, but the other issue is that the power locks won't work. At present...
  10. Added sub and amp to 2017 Sorento SX

    2016 - 2020 Sorento Forum
    This single little 8” sub in a compact box makes a world of difference to my stock infinity system. I CANNOT believe how rich the sound is now, and this little thing booms so I keep the bass knob turned down to 50% or less. this was installed at Unique Audio in Lorton, VA who hid the amp and...

    Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    Radio works but display has nothing. CD player does work but it takes a few times to eject. I just bought my Sedona and this is how it came... Can it be fixed, or do I need to replace it?

    Kia Cee'd Forum
    Hello, my USB port for music worked fine until now... yesterday I put some more music on USB stick via PC and put it back in. Problem is now, when I turn the car on, it won't play from USB automatically, or at all, except if I put out the stick and put it back in. So now I must first turn the...
