    I have this same exact problem. I fell asleep with my phone under my pillow and now it is stuck on car kit and I can't get it off at all. I can call the tech support or anything. The only thing I can do it text message.

Bluetooth connection to carkit let me know the Pin No

Without knowing the car kit model, it is hard to say, but, most of the time the default Bluetooth pin number is 0000. On occasion, the num is 1234. Please refer to the manual that came with the kit for exact details.

It has car kit on and i dont know how to take it off

That means the port on the bottom thinks it has a carkit attached to the bottom port. Usually when this happens is when it has liquid damage. I would suggest using a dry toothbrush and gently brush the terminals. If it did not work then you will have to replace the phone. hope this helps

Not a problem as such. I have a SE C902 and a handsfree car kit. When I get in the car I switch bluetooth on and it locates the carkit. When I leave the car it disconnects from the carkit without a...

Keypad being locked isn't the problem at all. you check in bluetooth settings in your SE C902, in paired devices and see if it allows always auto connect settings on already paired devices.. on the other hand, i wouldn't advise you to keep your SE C902 bluetooth on or in recoverable mode once you leave you car because of the many vulnerabilities in that these days e.g viruses or any other bugs. always turn it off once you leave and only turn it on when you are back or when you need it.

there's 2 things you need to do to get these 2 devices to communicate. One is to make the bluetooth kit "findable" (for lack of a better term). and also have your phone search for the searchable device.
I'm not sure what your phone car kit is.... but check the instructions on how to put it into search mode. (I know that with a bluetooth headset, you hold the on button in and the indicator will change to a different color indicating search mode.
once you figure this part of the equation out, then access the phone menu for blue tooth and search for bluetooth findable equipment and it should list your car kit on the phone screen.
After that it is just a matter of entering a typical 0000 id code if needed and it should be paired with your carkit.
hope this helps...

LX VX5300 stuck on car kit

I have the same phone. I have had that same problem before. What i did to fix it was to take a blowdryer (on the cool setting -not warm or hot) and take the battery out and blow the phone with it. The reason it says carkit is because moisture got into the phone somehow. Mine first started saying carkit when my friend dunked my phone in a cup of water. I hope this helps you with your phone. Also if the blowdryer doesnt work then try using a can of pressurized air.

Car kit mode activated

I found this on another site, it worked like a charm... roll a VERY THIN piece of aluminum foil, and slide it (almost jiggle it) in the POWER SLOT. I tried it and it worked . Apparently saliva, water or anything liquid will make the connection to activate the phone into the 'car kit mode', so the aluminum foil acts as a conductor and switches your phone out of car kit mode...
