Question about 2004 Kia Sedona

1 Answer

Hello. I have aa 2005 kia rio LS. The Radio in it is Model HM-3700. I can not find out how to reset it so I can put in the code. It does not have a reset button on the front of it. I've tried disconnecting the battery, I've also tried reseting the car memory by pulling out the memory fuse. On the radio screen all I get is a message '1cde'. Is someone able to tell me how to reset this so i can get the code screen up? Regards James

    I contacted the dealer with the VIN and they gave me the 'code'. They had offered the battery disconnection as a solution to reset the radio. I think the solution needs to be within the radio its self. In the owner manual there is a picture of a radio with a reset button on it, but one one in car does not have a reset button on it (but does have a kia logo on in and was sold with the car).
    It seems odd that someone would sell a product like this, I have the correct code but I'm unable to get the radio to the code screen.

    I resolved myself to buying a new radio. I'm over going around in circles. That fact a car company would install such a radio is bizzar. They've lost lost my future custom. Good game Kia.

Keep in mind that the security code is the number with six (more in other cases) that appear in the owners manual, and its PRIVATE. Like any "security code" is very difficult for anyone to provide this number over the Internet, if this were so, the description of "security code" would make no sense. Unfortunately, faced with a situation like that you have, you should approach the dealer with your vehicle VIN and serial radio so they can give you a back-up. Sometimes you have to pay for this service.

Hope helps.

Need the code for mobis hm 3700

I have a Kia Carnival 2005 KVII. I had to contact Kia to get the radio code and give the vin number. Note # you will only get 3 attempts.
My Kia has a Mobis HM3700 and the Code I was given is 1812.

To insert code:
1 look at the front of the Radio you will see a screen, and at the bottom of the Right hand side is a set of channel select buttons.

they look like this
1 2 3
4 5 6

Each button from button number 1 to number 4 will cycle through from 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, to 0 each time you press these buttons you will change the number on the screen.

When you have the numbers shown below

Button numbers 1 2 3 4
Numbers showing 1 8 1 2

Than press Number 5 button to accept

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.
