Question about 2011 Kia Forte

1 Answer

We have a 2011 kia forte that has a radio that comes on and off if the power is turned on. if you turn the power off, it stays off, but if the power is on, the radio will go on and off on its own. I

This car was in an accident prior to us purchasing it, but the radio was working fine at the time of purchase(04 15 12). we did have an aftermarket autostart installed professionally right after we bought the car but never had a problem then either. we just go smart phones approx 6 mos ago and started using our blue tooth sync in the car and that has stopped working also. phones will not sync anymore.

You will need to remove the radio from the dash and send out for repair.

SOURCE: 2011 kia sorento car wont start

I have the same problem with my 2011 Kia Sorento. I have been googling it and I think it may be a bad brake sensor switch. Going to take it to the dealership on Monday. I had my battery tested (which I had replaced about 3 weeks ago) and it was fine. I found a video online that shows how to bypass the brake sensor . Push the start button once and then again and hold it the second time for about 15 seconds until it starts. Mine started right up

Have 2011 kia forte. it makes this strange grinding noise when you first turn on the heat

You may have squirrels storing food for the winter in your car. Try locating the in-cabin air filter(usually located behind the glove box on most cars) and remove the access panel and filter. The fan is most likely below the filter check to see if there are pine cones, peanuts, or apples in there. Remove debris and replace.
