How do you reset the radio. the radio goes to hold .


First, write down your VIN # then call a Kia Dealership and ask for someone in the parts department, he may be able to give you a code to unlock it, or buy a new cd player for 80 buck and most big box stores have the install kits available.... or.... a boombox shoved between the seats... good luck.

Check the fuse in the fuse box located on the inside drivers side bottom left of the dash. Pull the radio fuse which you can locate by looking on the back of the fuse panel door. Replace it with a fuse rated at the same amperage as the one you remove. Let me know if you have already done this and I will try to help you further. Please rate me on this answer.

You need to get a hold of the dealer to get the reset code. They will need your vehicle identification number. This code is sometimes there after a battery goes dead or is canged.

The radio on my 2001 Kia says ''HOLD''


How long did you leave the battery on hooked. Radio codes are usually written in the owners manual by the dealership. Look in your owners manual in the radio section to see if it tells you anything about (HOLD).

Problem with radio


hi there
your car will have a security code for the radio
this is there so if some one steals your radio and put it in there car it will ask for a code and unless they have it if they don't it will be useless to them as it will do what you are doing now
if you have the owners manual you can look in there for a radio code
this will be a 4 digit code
you need to enter it when prompted
if you don't have the code go to your local KIA service center and they will be able to get it for you

hope this helps
