Question about 2003 Kia Sorento
Our kia radio is posessed! Especially is cold temp. The radio will not come on, sometimes it won't go off (even when you turn off the car) You have to pull out the fuse or disconnect the battery cables, then it is ok for a while. Any ideas?

This is one that you can stare at all day. the trim pieces that include the air vents (usually woodgrain) will come off and expose the screws that hold the radio in. They are held in by spring clips, a gentle pry will get you started. Here is a website that shows how to remove one for a cell phone mount: http://www.bracketron.com/main/xmain_landing_page.php You may have to take the climate controll screws out to get the radio out far enough to reach the plugs on the back. You should be able to figure out the rest. good luck, and be gentle.. the trim is getting cheaper and cheaper, and is really easy to break.
