Question about 2008 Kia Rio

1 Answer

I had to get a new battery for my 2008 kia rio and called the dealer for the reset code for my radio/cd player. They said I have to get the whole thing taken out to get a number off the unit. This sounds strange, is it true?

SOURCE: resetting airbag on 2002 kia rio

Typical code readers (OBDII) won't touch the airbag lights. Neither will disconnecting the battery and waiting. If the airbag light is flashing, there's a code involved. The system may or may not work when needed. If it's on steady, the system is failed and will not deploy when needed. Typically, it's a connector in the various harnesses involved. Unfortunately, the Kia shop manuals just say "replace everything" so they're no help. The dealer has the very expensive code reader to read & reset the airbag light. In other words, $$$.

Replaced the battery in my 2005 Kia Rio and it locked the radio. Need to reset the radio


You can't reset it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzzkill I know, and it probably won't be long until car owners won't even have access to the engine compartment. They will need your VIN, and then they call HQ to get the code for your radio.

You can pull the radio and get the codes or call the dealer and get them up to you. You will need your vin # in the window and you will have ti have your name on the registration number before they will give it to you.

Kia rio 2002 model how do i decode my stero its asking for a code


Check the owners manual, there's a 4 digit code in one of the manuals for the radio...Try the code 1212 or 1111....if you enter the wrong code too many times it locks up and you have to disconnect the battery cable and re-connect it to reset the lock on the radio...call the dealership service department and a tech will provide you the correct code to unlock the radio
