Mine said car kit and I kept reading it was because it got wet, and my phone didn't get wet. I noticed a little corrosion where I plug the phone in starting to form and I rubbed a little off and the car kit on the main screen went away.

For my phone, i also couldnt hear and ringtones and couldnt call anyone. then i looked in the bottom of my phone where the charger goes and there was a little pin that was bent so i took a pair of tweezers and gently moved it back into place and it went back to normal in an instant.

this worked for me, but you might have a different problem.

I accidently left my phone outside when it starting raining (2-5 mins) i retreived, wipe and dried it off. I did not bother to use until about 2 hours later when I notice that its not working. I then notice the car kit mode, I follow some advise of looking at the bottom where the charger is plug in. I took my charger line and (without plugging to A/C outlet) I played with it by plugging in the phone and move it up and down, and in an instant the car kit mode disapper. work also for me.

I cannot get the galaxy ace to automaticaly connect to my car hands frre kit ( Parrot )


ejiehi.jpg
The parrot car kit varies, there are about 10 different types of the parrot car kit and the connections varies slightly. Just follow these steps to connect ur galaxy phone to the car kit.


For this model of the parrot car kit,after the installation on your car,ensure the car is on

Parrot CK3000:

1. Start the car and ensure the car kit is on.
2. Activate Bluetooth on your phone, and search for Bluetooth devices.
3. Select "Parrot CK" from the list.
4. Enter 1234 on your phone when prompted for a password or code.
5. The Parrot CK3000 will sound a beep when connected to your phone.

Your phone has now been paired with the Car Kit and is ready for use.

For other models of the parrot car kit,repeat step 1 & 2 above and for step 3, u select the model name like "parrot EVOL" for the CK3000 Evolution model.

I have an LG LG-VX8300 cell phone. It's stuck on ''car kit'' and I can't use it. I have no idea how it got on ''car kit''. How do I fix it?


I can almost guarantee that if you look closely at the contact pins in your charging port, you will find they are either slightly (or extremely) corroded, or bent out of shape. Try cleaning the contacts with a toothbrush and isopropyl alcohol.

"Car Kit" is a device that you plug into the charging port of an LG phone for hands-free use. If you are not using a device of this nature, and still see "Car Kit" displayed, it means that you got the phone wet or otherwise damaged the charging port.

you can also try resetting the phone
#1) press soft key for menu
#2) then press 0
#3) you'll have a service code prompt, type 000000
#4) then type 2 (it should be field tests)
#5) then type 4 (clear errors)
#6) choose yes for clear errors
#7) press clear once
#8) type 1 (Service Prg)
#9) choose ok soft button (in the middle) all the way through until the end. Then the phone will reset.

LG Phone has Car Kit Error. Didn't Get Wet. Can I Clear it


Dear customer,
                     To Remove “Car-kit” error there are few ways:               What worked for me as suggested by chemist  is using Calcium Chloride (CaCL2) as a drying agent since it pulls moisture out of the air, and according to Verizon, this car-kit error is caused by exposure to moisture. For the average person, you can find this in the form of “Prestone Driveway Heat Concentrated Ice Melter” (or other ice melter – check ingredients). 
1) Pour about 1 cup or so of CaCL2 in a small Tupperware container. 
2) Place a sheet of paper on top of the CaCL2 to protect the phone. 
3) Place the phone on top of the paper so as not to allow phone to touch CaCL2 (this is important). 
4) Place the lid tightly on the Tupperware container. 
5) Allow to sit overnight. 

In the morning, the “car-kit” error was gone! Yay! I could could hear my callers, they could hear me, and I could hear all my ringers.  

                         Other suggestions that  might work for you are. 

         Car Kit 
 To remove errors from phone: 
#1) press soft key for menu 
#2) then press 0 
#3) you'll have a service code prompt, type 000000 
#4) then type 2 (it should be field tests) 
#5) then type 4 (clear errors) 
#6) choose yes for clear errors 
#7) press clear once 
# type 8 (FCC test) 
#9) type one (pcs) 
#10) type one again (set channel) (mine shows 426 I don't know if theres a different channel for each phone.) 
#11) press clear 3 times and the phone will reset. 


                       FOR RESTTING 
Enter "Menu" 
Select "Settings" 
Select "Security" 
Enter "Lock Code" - Will default to last 4 digits of phone number or "0000" unless changed. 
Select "Reset Defaults" 
Press "Ok"

Plz rate this solution.. thank you..

Lg cell phone vx3450


This is an old post but in case anybody searches and finds it...The infamous "car kit" mode on LG phones is a problem I had. Your service provider will claim the phone got wet (they will look at indicators in the battery compartment and on the battery itself that turn blue in the presence of moisture. Trouble is, they will eventually turn blue just from humidity even if the phone wasn't given a bath). Search the web; there are one or two forum threads with many suggested solutions (such as resetting error codes in the service menu, scrubbing out the battery connector with a toothbrush, plugging/unplugging the actual car kit connector, etc.). None of these suggestions gave a permanent fix (YMMV) for me and I eventually bought a new phone.

Car kit mode???


The Car Kit message is usually caused by corrosion in your charging port. Yes, holding * may revive the phone, but your best bet is to get some contact cleaner and a toothbrush and clean out your charging port.
